His next chance to return will come Monday against Oklahoma City.
Last season, he averaged 13.1 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.6 assists over 67 games.
Last season, Burks averaged a career-high 14.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists over 70 games. He has combined for 33 points through the first two games of the season.
The threesome have shown potential either at the college or NBA levels. Carter-Williams last year became only the second NBA rookie to lead all first-year players in scoring, assists and rebounds. Noel, still a prized rookie after sitting out last year while nursing a knee injury, debuted Wednesday with six points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots. Wroten averaged 17.8 points and 5.1 assists in 17 games for Philadelphia a season ago.
The latest setback for Oklahoma City comes on the heels of injuries to superstar Kevin Durant, as well as several other players.
The severity of the Westbrook injury and possible timetable for his return will become clearer after he undergoes further tests Friday.
Westbrook's right hand landed awkwardly on Kendrick Perkins' thigh while battling for a rebound in the second quarter. He left the game a few plays later with the injury and did not return.
This comes as a huge blow for the Thunder, who are already without Kevin Durant for the start of the season due to a broken foot. The injury could keep him out for several weeks, depending on the severity of the fracture. Brooks did not provide a timetable for recovery and Westbrook was not made available to reporters after the game for further comments.
Jones, who shot 1 for 9 on opening night, bounced back early on with nine points in the opening period. He 10 of 17 from the floor, including 3 of 6 from the floor and 9 of 11 from the free throw line. Jones added seven rebounds, three assists and one block while logging 42 minutes of game action. He has combined for 35 points and 10 rebounds through his first two games.
Before Thursday, Jones' previous career-high was 14 points in his rookie season in 2013.
