Paul George scored 32 points (12-of-24 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and three triples in 40 minutes on Friday vs. the Nuggets.
He recently said he thinks he's playing the best ball of his career and his teammates and coaches would agree. "He's just being himself," Russell Westbrook said. "He's aggressive when he plays his pace. He can get any shot he wants, can score with anybody in the league. As you can see, he's been good all season." Coach Billy Donovan said he would be hard-pressed to name a player playing at a higher level, and there's certainly a lot of chatter around the league about PG-13 entering the MVP conversation with the Thunder currently 17-10.

Russell Westbrook scored 18 points (7-of-17 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs) with six rebounds, six assists, two steals, two triples and five turnovers in Monday's easy 110-83 win over the Pistons.

He played just 29 minutes in the lopsided win and didn't have to touch the floor in the fourth quarter. The Thunder are now 15-3 since their 0-4 start and Westbrook's value should trend up when his 3-point percentage comes back up -- he's hitting just 22.3 from deep on nearly five attempts per game. Paul George added 17 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in 31 minutes and also took an early seat.
Dec 3 - 9:19 PM

Russell Westbrook (left ankle sprain) is listed 'out' for Monday's game vs. Phoenix.

OKC hasn't provided many updates and we've yet to see Westbrook on the practice court, so it's not surprising that he's expected to miss another game. Dennis Schroder continues to gain the most with Paul George stepping into the 'alpha' role offensively while Westbrook is on the mend.
Nov 11 - 6:32 PM

Russell Westbrook (left ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game in Cleveland.

Further tests revealed nothing more than an ankle sprain for Westbrook, but the Thunder will hold off on providing an official timetable until they see how he responds to treatment. Wednesday will mark the first game of a back-to-back set, meaning there won't be any practice time between games, so there's a decent chance he'll miss both. Dennis Schroder will start while he's out and Paul George will see an uptick in usage.

Russell Westbrook led the Thunder to a 128-110 win over the Clippers on Tuesday, scoring 32 points with eight assists, four rebounds, three steals, one block and one triple in 34 minutes.

He has a long history with Patrick Beverley and the two had yet another altercation tonight when Bev dived into Westy's knees for a loose ball. Luckily he walked away without an injury and only a technical to his name. Westy hit 13-of-25 shots and 5-of-7 free throws, and he got the last laugh in this one as the Thunder won their second straight game after a rocky start to the season. Paul George added 32 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and three triples for OKC.
Oct 30 - 11:56 PM

Russell Westbrook (right shoulder) will play on Sunday against the Suns.

Westbrook sat out Saturday's practice with the shoulder issue, but there's been no word on a minutes limit, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active for a favorable matchup vs. Phoenix. Joining Westbrook in the starting five will be Paul George, Terrance Ferguson, Jerami Grant and Steven Adams.
Oct 28 - 5:31 PM

Updating a previous report, Russell Westbrook (knee) will play Sunday against the Kings and will not have a minutes limit.

With Westbrook back in action tonight, Dennis Schroder will likely see a reduction in minutes, and his usage rate will plummet. With no minutes restrictions for Russ, he's obviously safe to fire up everywhere, and he could be in for a huge night going up against Sacramento's lackluster defense. Joining Westbrook in the starting five will be Terrance Ferguson, Paul George, Patrick Patterson and Steven Adams.
Oct 21 - 5:23 PM

Russell Westbrook (right knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's regular-season opener against the Warriors.

Westbrook still hasn't gone through full contact, 5-on-5 work at practice, so until that happens, we won't see him take the court for any regular-season action. Dennis Schroder figures to earn the start at point guard tonight, with Paul George running the show on offense. The Thunder play again on Friday against the Clippers, and for now, we'll be considering Westbrook doubtful for that one.
Oct 16 - 2:28 PM

Hamidou Diallo will draw the start at shooting guard for Tuesday's exhibition game against the Bucks, with Terrance Ferguson (concussion) unavailable.

Diallo started the second half of Sunday's preseason game when Ferguson went down with the concussion and played well, and there's opportunity in OKC at the two-spot with both Ferguson and Andre Roberson (knee) out. Diallo will be able to make his case as a starter tonight and he'll be joined by Dennis Schroder, Paul George, Patrick Patterson and Steven Adams.
Oct 9 - 6:33 PM

Billy Donovan will return as the head coach for the Thunder in 2018-19.

Donovan was noncommittal about his future with OKC following their first-round playoff exit, but GM Sam Presti confirmed at Wednesday's exit interviews that he would be back. The Thunder are preparing for a crucial offseason with Paul George hitting the open market, but Presti said his dialogue with George "has really encouraged us."

Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Joe Ingles hit 5-of-9 shots with three 3-pointers in 32 minutes on Sunday, finishing with 13 points, two rebounds and one assist.

Utah's defense was unusually porous during their Game 1 loss in OKC, and they had a particularly tough time checking Paul George, who scored 36 points on 13-of-20 shooting. And when George was asked about his defensive assignment vs. Ingles, he replied, "Just pressure him. It's very, very unlikely [Ingles] will beat me off the dribble. I'll take my chances in the foot speed." As long as PG-13 is draped on him defensively, it'll be hard for Ingles to have any big games in this series.
Apr 16 - 12:41 AM

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.
Apr 15 - 9:15 PM

Russell Westbrook (ankle) and Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

This will be the second straight game on the sidelines for these two, which isn't very surprising given they didn't practice on Saturday. Raymond Felton and Patrick Patterson started in their place on Thursday, and it'll likely be more of the same tonight, but Paul George is the guy you want to target in DFS. The Thunder take on the Cavs on Tuesday, and for now, we'll be considering Westbrook and Melo questionable for that one.
Feb 11 - 6:06 PM

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.
Feb 11 - 6:05 PM

Carmelo Anthony (right ankle) is questionable to play Thursday against the Lakers.

The Thunder should be able to pull out a win in Los Angeles without Anthony's services, so it wouldn't be all that shocking to see him sit that one out. Jerami Grant and Pattrick Patterson would likely split the majority of his minutes, and while Patterson would likely start, Grant is the more attractive fantasy target between the two. Russell Westbrook (ankle) is also questionable to play, so Paul George could be extremely busy on Thursday.
Feb 7 - 7:53 PM

Victor Oladipo scored 38 points in Indiana's 123-119 overtime thriller over Brooklyn, his seventh game with 30-plus points this season.

Dipo finished with four boards, six assists, one steal, one block, and two triples on 13-of-23 shooting, including a perfect 10-of-10 from the foul line. The best part? Oladipo didn't turn the rock over a single time, solidifying this gem of a performance for those relying on him in nine-cat settings. Although widely criticized at the time the deal was done, the Paul George trade is being viewed a lot differently these days because Oladipo is the real deal.

Russell Westbrook was a model of efficiency on Wednesday, making 10-of-13 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws to score 24 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists and four steals.

He committed just one turnover in 27 minutes, which is a welcome change of pace, and would almost certainly have triple-doubled if the score weren't out of hand. Nobody on either team played more than Paul George's 30 minutes tonight, and there's not a lot to take away from this blowout for evaluation purposes.
