MILWAUKEE — Clippers guard Russell Westbrook had surgery Monday to repair a fractured left hand and the hope is he’ll be able to return before the playoffs start in April, a person not authorized to speak publicly on the matter confirmed to The Times.

Westbrook will be reevaluated weekly to determine his status.

Westbrook was injured during the first half of the Clippers’ game against the Washington Wizards on Friday at Arena. He reached in from behind to try for a steal against Wizards guard Jordan Poole.


Westbrook, 35, was averaging 11.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists.

He appeared in the first 58 games for the Clippers before his injury.
