Kendrick Perkins Out For Six WeeksBy: Emily Greene - February 25, 2014
Oklahoma City Thunder just caught a bad break (or a break depending on how you look at it). Center Kendrick Perkins just underwent surgery to his left groin.
Perkins needed the surgery after he injured his groin early in the second half of the Thunder matchup against the Miami Heat on February 20.
While Perkins is recovering he will be out for six weeks, meaning he could potentially miss 20 games.
If recovery goes will for Perkins he could possibly be in the last few games of the regular season.
The most likely replacement for Perkins at center will be Steven Adams, who started in place of Perkins during the Thunder’s Sunday game versus the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Thunder took to their Twitter to update fans of Perkins and the team.
Even after surgery, Perkins took to Twitter and he seemed to be in high spirits.
Of course, when he realized his mistake, he took to Twitter to better explain and make a correction to his previous tweet.
Members of the NBA also took to Twitter to wish Perkins a speedy recovery.
You can watch Perkins get hurt and then limp off the court in the videos below.
