Russell Westbrook turned in his 35th triple-double of the season during a 122-97 win over the 76ers on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with 11 rebounds, 14 assists, two blocks and five turnovers.
Westbrook was 6-of-6 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line to make him the first player in NBA history to drop a triple-double on perfect shooting. Westbrook only had a 19.5 usage rate in this game, which is less than half his season average and is also a season low by a mile. In fact, this was only the second time this season he had a usage rate under 30 in a game. He gets a triple-double date with James Harden on Sunday afternoon. Mar 23 - 12:21 AM

Date:

Russell Westbrook (hand) will start Wednesday vs. the 76ers, as expected.

Westbrook picked up a blister on his shooting hand during Monday's loss to Golden State, but he's obviously fine, and he should have a nice bounce-back performance with a matchup against Philly. Victor Oladipo, Andre Roberson, Taj Gibson and Steven Adams will join him in the starting five.

Billy Donovan said that Russell Westbrook picked up a blister on his right (shooting) hand during Monday's loss to the Warriors, but he's fine.

Westbrook took it easy during Tuesday's light, non-contact practice, but he should be just fine for Wednesday's matchup with the 76ers. Owners can expect to get official confirmation on Westbrook's status following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Mar 21 - 2:25 PM

Russell Westbrook was held to 15 points on 4-of-16 shooting vs. the Warriors on Monday.

Incredibly, his 15 points were his 2nd-fewest in a game this season since he scored 14 vs. the Heat back in November. Westbrook added eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one triple, but only played 27 minutes in the lopsided loss. Westbrook needs seven triple-doubles in his last 12 games to match Oscar Robertson's single-season record of 41 triple-doubles, so Westy's owners probably don't have to worry about him taking time off.
Mar 21 - 12:15 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 28 points during a 110-94 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, 10 assists, four steals, seven turnovers and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

No triple-double this time to snap his four-game streak. While he didn't get the triple-double, he still has an excellent chance to average one for the season because he only needs 7.3 boards and 8.2 dimes in his final 13 games to hold the double-digit averages. Additionally, he has multiple-treys in four straight and his jumper is working again. Monday should be fun against the Warriors.
Mar 18 - 6:31 PM

Russell Westbrook posted his 34th triple-double of the season during a 123-102 win in Toronto on Thursday, scoring 24 points with 10 rebounds, 16 assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in just 28 minutes.

That's four consecutive triple-doubles, eight in his last 12, and it's also his third streak of four straight trip-dubs this season. He is now seven away from Oscar Robertson's record of 41 triple-doubles in a season, which seems to be well within his grasp given his high volume in that department lately. Additionally, Westbrook playing in every game is very impressive given all his usage this season. He gets the Kings at home on Saturday.
Mar 16 - 10:25 PM

Russell Westbrook recorded his 33rd triple-double in Tuesday's 122-104 win over the Nets, racking up 25 points, 19 assists and 12 rebounds.

Per Statmuse, the last player to match/exceed those totals in a game was Magic Johnson in 1987. The Nets have given up the most fantasy points to point guards this season, so it was the perfect storm for Westy. He shot 6-of-18 from the field and 11-of-13 from the line with two steals, one block and two triples in 35 minutes. He's unfair right now. Westy will be back in action vs. the Raptors on Thursday.
Mar 14 - 11:16 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 33 points in his 32nd triple-double of the season during a 112-104 win over the Jazz on Saturday, adding 11 rebounds, 14 assists, two steals, two blocks, five turnovers and three 3-pointers.

He is now in sole possession for the second most triple-doubles in a season and is nine away from Oscar Robertson's single-season record. He's on pace for 40 triple-doubles, so he will have to turn it up slightly. The Thunder continue to have success when Westbrook does get the trip-dub with a 26-6 record compared to just 11-23 when he doesn't. OKC is likely going to battle it out for playoff positioning, so there has been no word of him resting.
Mar 11 - 6:22 PM

Russell Westbrook turned in his 31st triple-double of the season during a 102-92 win over the Spurs on Thursday, scoring 23 points with 13 rebounds, 13 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He tied with Wilt Chamberlain for the second-most triple-doubles in a single season -- Oscar Robertson has 41. Before tonight, Westbrook was not even close to getting a triple-double against the Spurs, and now only the Hornets and Bulls remain on his list of teams he's never posted a triple-double against. Most importantly for Westbrook, the Thunder are now 25-6 when he posts a triple-double this season.
Mar 10 - 12:30 AM

Russell Westbrook scored a career-high 58 points in Tuesday's 126-121 loss to the Blazers.

Insane. His previous career-high was 54 points. He shot 21-of-39 from the field and 13-of-16 from the line, adding nine assists, three rebounds, three steals, one block and three triples in 36 minutes. He had a ridiculous 56.7 usage rate and has tried to put the Thunder on his back during this four-game losing streak. They face the Spurs on Thursday, so Westbrook will have his work cut out for him again and could see a lot of Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard.
Mar 7 - 10:51 PM

Russell Westbrook didn't score in the second quarter on Sunday, but he still finished with 29 points (8-of-24 FGs, 11-of-13 FTs), six rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, two 3-pointers and just one turnover.

Westbrook's streak of 40-point performances ended at four games. His relatively subdued stat line isn't the real issue for fantasy owners, as he also picked up his 14th technical foul of the season tonight -- two more and he'll face a mandatory one-game suspension. He's not known for checking his passion on the court, and owners just have to hope he doesn't miss any games during the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 5 - 11:09 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 48 points with 17 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes during a 118-111 loss to the Suns on Friday.

He joined just eight other players in NBA history to score 40-plus points in four consecutive games in the same season. Westbrook's fourth quarter was just ridiculous with 20 points, nine rebounds, two assists, no turnovers and one steal on 5-of-12 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line in nine minutes. Advanced stats wise, he had a 68 usage rate and a 73.3 defensive rebounding rate -- that usage rate without any turnovers is even more impressive. On the down side, Westbrook did pick up his 13th tech, so he's on pace to get a suspension unless he keeps the techs down.
Mar 4 - 1:40 AM

Russell Westbrook made 12-of-36 from the field and all 15 free throws for 45 points during a 114-109 loss to the Blazers on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, four assists, one block, one steal, four turnovers and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Holy usage. Westbrook had a 51.7 usage rate today and also a 50.1 usage rate on Tuesday, which marked the first time this season he's hit a 50-plus usage rate in consecutive games. On top of being on pace for triple-doubles, Westbrook is going to shatter the NBA record for usage rate in a season and currently sits at 41.3. Westbrook gets a dream matchup in Phoenix on Friday, but his averages are slightly down in back-to-back sets. Still, he's obviously a DFS play with all that usage.
Mar 3 - 1:52 AM

Russell Westbrook picked up the 30th triple-double of his season on Tuesday with 43 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, six 3-pointers and eight turnovers on 13-of-28 shooting in a 109-106 win over the Jazz.

He scored 12 of his 43 points in the final 2:05 of the game to will his team to the win and picked up the 67th triple-double of his storied career. It's hard to see anyone other than Westbrook winning the MVP this season, despite his turnovers This was also his fourth straight triple-double and the Thunder have won all four of those games, and currently sit as the No. 7 seed in the West. However, they hold an eight-game lead over the No. 8 Nuggets, so it looks like they are nearly a lock to make the playoffs. They're also just a 1/2 game back of the Grizzlies for the No. 6 seed, 1.5 games behind the No. 5 Clippers, and 2.0 games behind the No. 4 Jazz. Westbrook's season is likely to go down in history as one of the greatest ever, so just sit back and enjoy the show. Lastly, the Thunder hit their first 12 3-pointers tonight, the longest streak since the SuperSonics did it in 1998.
Feb 28 - 11:55 PM

Russell Westbrook survived an injury scare to finish Sunday's win vs. the Pelicans with 41 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and nine turnovers, making 14-of-29 FGs and 11-of-12 FTs in 37 minutes.

Westbrook limped off the court after falling on a drive to the basket in the second quarter, but he started the third and didn't show any obvious discomfort. He scored 21 points in the fourth quarter tonight and willed OKC to another win, putting them within 3.5 games of the No. 4 seed. He's averaging a triple-double this season, so tonight's line doesn't seem as outrageous as it would for any other human.
