Russell Westbrook made 8-of-16 from the field for 20 points during a 118-114 loss to the Pelicans on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, two blocks, four steals, two 3-pointers and seven turnovers in 38 minutes.
His three-game streak with a triple-double comes to a close, but on the plus side he made at least 50% from the field for the first time this month. Although, he was 2-of-5 from the line to drop him to a putrid 60.7% on the season. He fell off a cliff last year at 73.7% from 84.5% in 2016-17, so this is an alarming trend. He has to be better because he is going to tank owners in that department with his six attempts per game. Dec 12 - 11:58 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 12 points (4-of-18 FGs, 4-of-8 FTs) with 11 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, and four turnovers in 36 minutes against the Jazz on Monday.

Westbrook had an ugly shooting night again on Monday, but still racked up his sixth triple-double of the season and third in a row. He's back to averaging a triple-double for the season once again. It might not always be pretty, but Russ is one of the best players in 8-cat leagues because of the sheer volume he puts up.
Dec 10 - 10:59 PM

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled on Friday with 22 points, 17 rebounds and 13 assists during a tough 114-112 loss in Chicago.

The Bulls are a fantastic matchup for anyone, so Westbrook's owners could reasonably expect him to go wild in this road game. He started 0-of-4 from the field and deferred to his teammates early, but soon got aggressive and finished 8-of-19 from the field with four steals and 10 turnovers -- he and James Harden are the only players in history with multiple triple-doubles that also included double-digit turnovers. The Thunder win streak was snapped but Westbrook is back to being his monstrous self, which is bad news for the Jazz when they visit OKC on Monday.
Dec 7 - 11:11 PM

Russell Westbrook put up a giant triple-double against the Nets on Wednesday, scoring 21 points with 15 rebounds, 17 assists and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

He moved ahead of Jason Kidd with his 108th triple-double of his NBA career, and he's now 30 away from Magic Johnson for the No. 2 spot. Westbrook and OKC took a page out of the Rockets' playbook with all of Westbrook's makes and dimes resulting in treys or paint buckets. His big trip-dub now puts him at averages of 22.7 points, 10.0 boards and 9.7 dimes, so he looks to be on his way for another season triple-double.
Dec 5 - 11:17 PM

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 scored 23 points with nine rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, five turnovers and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Hawks during an easy 124-109 win on Friday.

His triple-double streak comes to an end at two, but garbage time kept him out for the final 4:43 of this easy win. The Thunder are playing some of the best ball in the NBA with the best defense in the league, and their pace has also really picked up with a top-three offense in time of possession since Westbrook returned from his ankle injury. He's going to have some monster stat lines going forward.
Nov 30 - 11:09 PM

Russell Westbrook put up a triple-double for the second consecutive game during a 100-83 win over the Cavs, scoring 23 points with 19 rebounds, 15 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

The new Mr. Triple Double picked up his 107th of his career to tie Jason Kidd for third all time. He still has a long way to go to get to Oscar Robertson's 181, but he'll likely be approaching Magic Johnson's 138 at some point next season. His big game also puts him just shy of another season trip-dub, averaging 23.2 points, 10.3 boards and 9.8 dimes in his 12 games. OKC is playing good ball these days at 13-7 and they'll likely be able to pad some offensive stats on Friday with a game against the Hawks.
Nov 29 - 12:28 AM

Russell Westbrook made 6-of-23 from the field for 16 points with 10 rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He did look to have a minor left ankle tweak as he got tied up with Paul Millsap in the third quarter, but Westbrook stayed in the game. This is the same left ankle that kept him out earlier this month, so hopefully nothing flares up on him overnight -- there's no concern about it as of post-game interviews. Stats wise, this is just Westbrook's second triple-double on the year, but he's well within range to average a triple-double on the year with averages of 23.2 points, 9.5 boards and 9.3 dimes.
Nov 24 - 11:13 PM

Russell Westbrook made 10-of-18 from the field and 9-of-11 from the line for 30 points during a 109-104 win over the Hornets on Friday, adding 12 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

Westbrook is back to being Westbrook, and his fantasy owners will love his answer to a question about his mindset when pulling down a defensive rebound late in the game. "Stat padding," he said. Westbrook also got his first apparent MVP chant and he looks like he'll be getting hot again. Made free throws are also encouraging after he shot just 60.7% from the line in his previous nine games.
Nov 24 - 12:40 AM

Russell Westbrook notched his first triple-double of the season on Wednesday with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, adding two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

OKC came away victorious vs. the Warriors, and Westbrook did well to trust his teammates and not force the issue offensively on a night when he wasn't hitting shots (5-of-15 FGs, 0-of-2 FTs). Next up is a back-to-back set this weekend -- Kemba Walker and the Hornets visit on Friday, followed by the Nuggets on Saturday. There's been no suggestion of limitations for Westbrook in back-to-back situations, despite his recent ankle injury, so keep him locked into active lineups.
Nov 22 - 1:23 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 29 points (12-of-25 FG, 1-of-2 FT) with 13 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, four turnovers and four three-pointers in 37 minutes Monday against Sacramento.

Westbrook made his return to the lineup after missing the prior six games due to a sprained ankle and his wife giving birth to twins. The 2017 NBA MVP wasn't under a minutes restriction Monday, and he ultimately finished three assists shy of a triple-double. If there's a surprise regarding Westbrook's night it's the fact that he attempted just two free throws, a single-game low this season.
Nov 20 - 1:47 AM

Russell Westbrook (personal, ankle) will play in Monday's game against the Kings, and will not have a minutes restriction.

Westbrook has been out of the lineup since November 5, with a sprained ankle sending him to the sidelines. Add in the fact that his wife recently gave birth to twin daughters, and it's understandable that there were questions regarding the point guard's status for Monday night. With Westbrook available and not under a minutes restriction, Dennis Schroder's playing time will decrease.
Nov 19 - 9:04 PM

Russell Westbrook (personal, ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game against the Kings.

Westbrook's wife just gave birth to twins, so it would be surprising to see him take the court tonight, especially considering that he still hasn't gone through a full practice. We'd say he's much closer to doubtful, and owners can check back closer to tip-off for official confirmation on his status.
Nov 19 - 3:08 PM

Russell Westbrook (personal) is listed 'out' for Monday's game vs. Sacramento.

Westbrook and his wife just welcomed the birth of twin daughters, so he'll take more time to spend with his expanded family. Dennis Schroder gets another opportunity to shine with big minutes as the starting PG, but Westbrook could return as soon as Wednesday vs. Golden State.
Nov 18 - 7:06 PM

Russell Westbrook (personal) is not practicing on Sunday and there is currently no timetable for his return.

Hopefully everything is OK with Westbrook and family. Coach Billy Donovan said that they didn't know if Russ would've even been physically able to play on Saturday if he was there and they never got to the point where they tried to test him to find out. He had basically done everything in Friday's practice and was trending towards playing, according to Donovan. Dennis Schroder will continue to start as long as Russ is out. The Thunder play next against the Kings on Monday. Stay tuned.
