Russell Westbrook was tremendous during a series-clinching 118-104 win over the Mavs on Monday, scoring 36 points with 12 rebounds, nine assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.
Before the game, owner Mark Cuban said Kevin Durant is the only superstar on the Thunder. After the game, Dirk Nowitzki said he'd take Westbrook and coach Rick Carlisle said the Thunder have two superstars. Westbrook was also asked about Charlie Villanueva. "Now he gets to go home and get ready in the offseason to sit and watch 82 more games like he did this year," Westbrook said. Westbrook will get a tough matchup against the Spurs in the next round, which figures to be the best series of the second round. Apr 25 - 11:50 PM

Russell Westbrook did his thing during a 119-108 Game 4 win over the Mavs on Saturday, scoring 25 points with five rebounds, 15 assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He has double-doubles in all four games in this round, averaging 23.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 11.8 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.3 blocks, 2.0 treys and 4.3 turnovers. Westbrook is also the first player to turn in consecutive playoff games of 20-plus points and 15-plus dimes since Kevin Johnson in 1992. There's a reason why DFS owners have to spend up so hard to get him in their lineups. OKC will look to close out the series on Monday.
Apr 24 - 12:29 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 26 points with 15 assists, one block, two steals, two 3-pointers and six turnovers in Thursday's win over the Mavericks.

The turnovers were rough, but the Mavericks had no answer for Westbrook tonight. He shot 9-of-16 from the field, 2-of-3 from deep and 6-of-9 from the line, and he also had a special block against Dirk Nowitzki which you can check out in the link below. Your move, Charlie Villanueva.
Apr 21 - 10:00 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 19 points with 14 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes in a loss to the Mavs on Monday.

He was 8-of-22 from the field as OKC just didn't have it on offense, making just 31-of-92 from the field. Westbrook was also carved up on defense at times in this game as one of his worst outings in a while. He'll likely bounce back on Thursday. A positive here is his 38 minutes, so expect a huge line in Game 3.
Apr 18 - 11:04 PM

Russell Westbrook scored a game-high 24 points during a 108-70 victory over the Mavs on Saturday, adding five rebounds, 11 assists, one block, five turnovers and two 3-pointers.

It's the second-largest playoff win in OKC history and this game was basically over in the second quarter. Westbrook averaged 17.8 points, 9.8 dimes, 6.8 boards, 2.3 steals and 1.0 treys against the Mavs during this regular season. He only played 30 minutes in this game, but he would've likely been in the upper 30s had the game been close. This series smells like a sweep.
Apr 17 - 12:36 AM

Russell Westbrook (rest) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

Cameron Payne will have the opportunity to start on Tuesday night sans Westbrook, while there will be more minutes available for guys like Randy Foye, Dion Waiters and Anthony Morrow. It's not a great matchup, but Foye could be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS with Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka also set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines for rest purposes.

Russell Westbrook turned in his 18th triple-double of the season on Monday during a 112-79 win over the Lakers, scoring 13 points with 10 rebounds, 14 assists, one steal and three turnovers.

He had the triple-double before halftime and is the first player to do so since Kevin Johnson in 1997. Westbrook's 18 triple-doubles ties Magic Johnson for the most in a single season in the last 50 years. He will almost certainly be resting on Tuesday against the Spurs.

Russell Westbrook scored 24 points with 10 assists, five boards, one steal and one 3-pointer in a loss to the Kings on Saturday.

He had a game-high eight turnovers, but other than that he looked fine, shooting 7-of-15 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line. The Thunder have a back-to-back set on Monday vs. the Lakers (at home) and Tuesday vs. the Spurs (on the road), so his owners should be on the lookout for a possible maintenance day since the Thunder can't move up or down in the standings. Cameron Payne would be worth a look in DFS if Westbrook gets a night off.
Apr 10 - 1:24 AM

Russell Westbrook is not expected to rest on Saturday against the Kings.

He rested for the first time on Wednesday and OKC will get their stat-stuffing point guard back. Get him in your lineup with Westbrook having a terrific matchup for this game.
Apr 9 - 2:15 PM

Russell Westbrook will be rested vs. the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

It's the second half of a back-to-back set and coach Billy Donovan is taking no chances. The Thunder are locked into the No. 3 seed in the West so they don't have much to play for in their final three games. Even though there are no more consecutive games on the schedule, Westbrook's owners should obviously be on red-alert for potential DNP-CDs. Cameron Payne and Randy Foye will assume primary ball-handling duties with WB on the bench tonight.
Apr 6 - 8:44 PM

Russell Westbrook had 13 points, 14 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers for his 17th triple-double of the season on Tuesday.

That's the most since Magic Johnson had 17 of them in 1988-89 and the Thunder are going to keep their foot on the gas pedal, as coach Billy Donovan reiterated after the game that he'll only rest guys if they're injured. Kevin Durant added 26 points and a massive stat line, and Serge Ibaka had 18 points, five boards and two 3-pointers in the 124-102 win over the Nuggets.
Apr 6 - 12:18 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Rockets, adding 13 boards, nine assists, one 3-pointer and two steals through 37 minutes of play.

Unfortunately, Westbrook also turned the ball over eight times, which accounted for nearly half of OKC's turnovers and was a key issue in the Thunder's loss. Westbrook has been a top-10 option in 8-cat leagues since the break, but when you factor in his 4.2 turnovers per contest, his value dips to top-20 status in 9-cat leagues.
Apr 3 - 6:34 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 26 points with eight rebounds, 11 assists, four steals and three 3-pointers against the Clippers on Thursday.

Unlike Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka, Russell Westbrook did not get Tuesday off. The Thunder are almost locked in to their No. 3 seed with a 10.5-game deficit to the Spurs for No. 2 and a 5.5-game lead over the No. 4 Clippers. Westbrook is probably a decent bet to rest either Tuesday or Wednesday of next week despite the Thunder saying they weren't going to rest players.
Apr 1 - 1:35 AM

Russell Westbrook shot just 8-of-28 to finish with 24 points in a 88-82 loss to the Pistons on Monday.

The Thunder were resting Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka, so Westbrook's owners were probably expecting a lot more. He also shot just 6-of-9 from the free throw line with three turnovers, but did add six assists, four boards, two steals and one 3-pointer. However, It's a good sign that the Thunder don't feel the need to rest Westbrook, so he should be a beast the rest of the way.
Mar 29 - 10:17 PM

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled yet again on Monday during a 119-100 win over the Raptors, scoring 26 points with 11 rebounds, 12 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

That's his 16th triple-double of the season to tie him for the second-most in a season over the last 30 years -- Magic Johnson had 17 in 1988-89. Westbrook also tied Michael Jordan for the most triple-doubles ever in a calendar month with seven. He'll have two more chance this month to add to his totals against the Pistons on Tuesday and Clippers on Thursday.
