Russell Westbrook Injury: Thunder Star Injures Ankle In Team USA's Win Over Argentina

The United States has, for the most part, coasted through the competition in men's basketball at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, but suffered their first setback when Russell Westbrook left the court in Team USA's win over Argentina on Friday:

Westbrook had nine points in just seven minutes off the bench in the 109-83 win, with the apparent injury coming with under four minutes left in the game, as the U.S. enjoyed a 98-72 lead. He did not return to the game, and headed into the locker room immediately, with assistance.

There's no official word on Westbrook yet, but the win did set up a gold medal match between the United States and Spain, who beat Russia on Friday to qualify for the finals.
