Russell Westbrook underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Wednesday after feeling some stiffness in the last week.
He will be re-evaluated in four weeks, which means he could miss some of the preseason. He's had numerous issues with his right knee, including a meniscus tear and this is now his fourth surgery on his right knee -- had a left-knee PRP treatment last year, too. The Thunder called it a "proactive procedure" in a statement about the former MVP, but getting the surgery so close to the season is a concern. Considering his history, Westbrook's potential fantasy owners may want to bump him down a handful of spots. Dennis Schroder gains slightly more value while Paul George is locked in as a top-15 pick.

Dennis Schroder scored 30 points with 13 assists to help Germany clinch a spot in the 2019 World Cup on Sunday.

Schroder and teammate Maxi Kleber (Mavs) connected on a dramatic alley-oop to force OT -- you can watch the play via the link below. Both players look to be in fine form with NBA training camps on the horizon, and we'll be watching Schroder closely since his fantasy value hinges on his ability to play alongside Russell Westbrook.

Raymond Felton said he would "love" to re-sign with the Thunder.

Felton is unlikely to have a market that extends beyond teams willing to offer him the veteran's minimum, so if the Thunder want to have some continuity at the backup point guard position behind Russell Westbrook, re-signing Felton could make sense. No matter the outcome, Felton won't be a priority in free agency.

Carmelo Anthony had 15 points, seven rebounds, three steals, two assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes vs. the Jazz on Sunday.

Melo shot 5-of-13 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, and more offense wasn't needed with Paul George (36 points) and Russell Westbrook (29 points) carrying the load. The takeaway for playoff fantasy leagues is that Melo filled up the defense stats -- he didn't have more than four combined steals and blocks in any game during the regular season.

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will not play vs. Memphis on Sunday.

Melo hurt himself during Tuesday's game and this is his second straight DNP. He didn't practice on Saturday, either, and there's no clear indication when he might return. With Russell Westbrook (ankle) also out of commission, Paul George should be extremely busy tonight.

Carmelo Anthony believes OKC is "much more effective" with Russell Westbrook "playing his game."

In other words, Melo wants everyone to let Westbrook be Westbrook. "We know what he brings to the game," Anthony said. "We understand it, we accept it. And by that, he’s able to just play his game, relax, and do what he does best. We need that Russ out there, not the one that defers to us. Let us figure it out." The Thunder is 5-0 in their last five games, and Carmelo has shown some signs of figuring out the dynamic during that time, averaging 19.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 3.0 3-pointers on 35-of-76 (46.1%) shooting.

Paul George (illness) sat out Monday's practice.

OKC doesn't play until Wednesday in Orlando, so PG-13 still has a full two days to rest up and get himself ready for that one. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he is forced to the sidelines, that would open up minutes for Jerami Grant while Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony would split the usage.

Carmelo Anthony (back) was limited to non-contact work during Tuesday's practice.

He's going to be re-evaluated on Wednesday, so owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's out again, Jerami Grant will be in line for another start and both Russell Westbrook and Paul George will see an uptick in usage.

Paul George posted a monster line vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday, scoring 19 points with 11 rebounds, four assists, five steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

We won't overreact to the preseason, but it looks like George, Russell Westbrook (20 points on 9-of-13 FGs) and Carmelo Anthony (16 points on 7-of-17 FGs) are going to coexist just fine. George led all Thunder players in minutes with 35, finishing 7-of-19 from the field with four turnovers. There's nothing wrong with taking him in the second round of drafts even though his ceiling isn't as high as previous years.

Raymond Felton, Andre Roberson, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony and Steven Adams will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Rockets.

Russell Westbrook (knee) is still recovering from his PRP injection, so Felton will be manning the point guard position in his absence. Billy Donovan indicated that new additions PG-13 and Melo will play their usual minutes during the first half, but they might not take the floor at all after halftime.
