Russell Westbrook scored 37 points with eight boards, six assists, three 3-pointers and nine turnovers in a loss to the Jazz on Saturday.
Westbrook's owners probably didn't even blink twice at this line which speaks volumes about his play recently. Kevin Durant isn't coming back this season, meaning Westbrook will arguably be the top play in fantasy leagues moving forward with the Thunder trying to clinch a playoff berth. Enjoy the show.

Russell Westbrook didn't make a basket after the first quarter in Wednesday's ugly 130-91 loss to the Spurs, finishing with 16 points, four rebounds, seven assists and two steals on 5-of-16 shooting.

Given the score, it's pretty easy to understand Westbrook finally having an off night, and it didn't help that he didn't play in the fourth quarter. The good news is that he's healthy and probably really ticked off, and will take his anger out on the poor Jazz on Saturday. He came into this one with seven triple-doubles in his last 14 games.
Mar 26 - 2:49 AM

Russell Westbrook put up his 10th triple-double of the season on Sunday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-16 shooting, to go with 10 rebounds, 17 assists, four steals, two blocks and six turnovers over 34 minutes of action.

Ridiculous. Westbrook become the first player since Jason Kidd to have at least 10 triple-doubles in a season, and he also matched his career-high in assists tonight. He's been absolutely stupendous, and with Serge Ibaka (knee) and Kevin Durant (foot) out for the remainder of the regular-season, Russell is going to continue to flirt with video game-like lines. As a reminder, Westbrook was taken No. 4 overall on draft day, only behind Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley, and O.J. Mayo.
Mar 22 - 6:55 PM

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled in the Thunder's 123-115 win over the Hawks on Friday, scoring 36 points on 8-of-24 shooting (3-of-6 from deep, 17-of-17 from the line) with 10 rebounds, 14 assists and one steal.

Westbrook is the sixth best fantasy play in 8-cat leagues this season despite playing just 54 games so far. He has also been the No. 1 and 3 play in 8- and 9-cat leagues over the last two months, basically averaging just under a 30-10-10 mark over the last 30 contests.
Mar 21 - 2:25 AM

Russell Westbrook hit just 8-of-26 shots and committed seven turnovers, but still had 36 points (19-of-22 free throws), five rebounds, 10 assists, five steals and a 3-pointers in Wednesday's win over the Celtics.

He's scary good right now, and worth every penny he costs in daily tournaments, despite his outrageous price tag. And the best news is he's going to keep playing, as the Thunder are without Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka, and are just a 1/2 game ahead of the Pelicans for the final playoff spot in the West.
Mar 19 - 12:56 AM

Russell Westbrook fouled out and committed seven turnovers during a 119-115 loss to the Mavs on Monday, scoring 24 points with eight rebounds, 12 assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

It wasn't his best game and his turnovers are ridiculous right now. In his last five, Westbrook averaged an unfathomable 7.6 turnovers per game. On the other hand, he's averaged 28.6 points, 9.8 boards, 10.8 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.0 treys. OKC is somehow going to have to get him some help, but Westy will be dropping colossal lines until Kevin Durant (foot) makes it back.
Mar 17 - 12:41 AM

Russell Westbrook is working to cut down his number of turnovers.

Before committing four turnovers in Sunday's win over the Bulls, Westbrook had turned the ball over 27 times in his previous three contests. That's going to be partially expected with Westbrook serving as a one-man wrecking crew for the Thunder right now, and while Scott Brooks expressed some concern, he didn't seem too troubled by it. We're not worried about it, and neither are Westbrook's owners.

Russell Westbrook continued his amazing play during Sunday's win over the Bulls, piling up 36 points on 12-of-27 shooting (10-of-13 from the stripe), 11 rebounds, six assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and four turnovers through 41 minutes of action.

Westbrook was simply phenomenal during this one, and this was his fifth game of the season with at least 35 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists. To give that statistic some perspective, the rest of the NBA combined has six such games this season, and Russell is making these ridiculous stat lines look easy. He'll look to continue his late push for MVP-honors when the Thunder take on the Mavs on Monday.
Mar 15 - 3:42 PM

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled in the Thunder's 113-99 win over the Wolves on Friday, scoring 29 points on 11-of-24 shooting (3-of-6 from deep, 4-of-4 from the line) with 10 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and a whopping eight turnovers.

Westbrook's turnovers are out of control at 5.9 per game over his last 11 contests, but he's rolling so well that he's still the No. 2 play over that span in 9-cat formats. In 8-cat formats he has about 25 percent more value than the next guy behind him (Steph Curry) in that span, as he's averaging a triple-double with 32.9 points, 10.2 boards and 11.1 assists per game. He is literally carrying fantasy teams toward titles right now.

Russell Westbrook has received a flopping warning for his flop against the Clippers on Wednesday.

This one was an easy call for the league, and you can view the flop for yourself by clicking the link below. Westbrook's next violation will result in a $5,000 fine.
Mar 12 - 6:33 PM

Russell Westbrook had 24 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers on 5-of-14 shooting, finally cooling off against Chris Paul and the Clippers on Wednesday.

Westbrook faced a stiff challenged from CP3, and Paul was not messing around. When guarded by Paul, Westbrook hit just 2-of-8 shots for seven points and seven turnovers on the night. And when you add in the fact that Westbrook had a career-high 10 turnovers and still couldn't get even a double-double, you know Paul had an amazing night. Look for Westbrook to take his frustrations out on the Timberwolves on Friday, as he had triple-doubled in five of his previous six games prior to running into the 'Paul Wall.'
Mar 12 - 1:14 AM

Russell Westbrook joined Oscar Robertson as the only players in NBA history to record 200+ points, 50+ rebounds and 50+ assists over a five-game stretch.

Westbrook has 201 points, 61 rebounds and 56 assists in his last five contests. What he's been doing of late has just been downright ridiculous, and Westbrook has vaulted his name into the epicenter of the MVP discussion with his onslaught. Showing no signs of slowing down, Westbrook is single-handedly changing the ceiling of both the Thunder and every fantasy team he's on.
Mar 9 - 11:20 AM

Russell Westbrook posted yet another triple-double vs. Toronto on Sunday with 30 points, 11 rebounds, a career-high-tying 17 assists, four steals and one block.

He's making ridiculous games appear routine, having racked up triple-doubles in five of OKC's past six games, and he joins Magic Johnson as the only players to record at least 30/11/17 with four steals. Kevin Durant (foot) remains without a clear return date, so fantasy owners can expect Westbrook's pyrotechnics to continue vs. Chris Paul and the Clippers on Wednesday. In the face of Westbrook's historic production since the All-Star break, tonight's nine turnovers are hardly worth acknowledging.
Mar 8 - 9:47 PM

Russell Westbrook's consecutive triple-double streak was snapped against the Bulls in a 108-105 loss on Thursday, scoring 43 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

That's still a ridiculous line and he now has three consecutive games of scoring at least 40. Westbrook was the OKC offense today, making 14-of-32 from the field and 12-of-15 from the line to give him an absurd usage rate of 50.5. Kobe Bryant has the record for usage rate in a season at 38.7 in 2005-06, but Westbrook has a legitimate chance to top him with his 38.1 entering tonight even before this monster game. In his last four games, he's averaged 42.8 points, 12.8 boards, 9.8 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.3 treys. He's a one-man offense.
Mar 5 - 10:58 PM

Russell Westbrook (face) said he has no issues with his protective mask that he wore during Wednesday's win over the 76ers.

Westbrook recorded his fourth consecutive triple-double Wednesday night and the mask did little to hamper his efforts. "I mean, it was weird, obviously, [I] kept wiping it and it was a total, big process of trying to keep everything from not falling and all this stuff," he said. "But that's not going to stop me. My job is to come out there and lead my team." There's not much else to say about Westbrook right now other than that he should be cemented in every fantasy lineup.
