Russell Westbrook made 9-of-18 from the field for 25 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four turnovers in 36 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.
Hey, he didn't get 33 shots. Westbrook also had one of his lowest board-dime totals in this game and maybe he didn't have the same juice after playing 52 minutes on Friday against the 76ers. Westbrook is still getting a crazy amount of usage this year with only DeMarcus Cousins having more possessions this season, but he still has to up his efficiency. He has really just been a five-cat player in points, boards, assists, 3-pointers and steals, but he he's been pretty bad in the other four in standard leagues (percentages, blocks and turnovers).

Russell Westbrook made 10-of-33 from the field for 27 points against the 76ers during a 119-117 triple-overtime win on Friday, adding 18 rebounds, 15 assists, two steals, six turnovers and two 3-pointers in 52 minutes.

In traditional Westbrook fashion, he attempted 15 shots in the overtime frames. He was asked about his inefficiency after the game. "I don’t really give a damn about percentages, honestly. All I care about is wins," he said to ESPN's Doris Burke. Joel Embiid also had something to say about Westbrook's high usage. "The dude shot like 10-of-33. I wish I would have shot it 33 times," Embiid said. We all know about the triple-doubles, but Westy has been at just 0.8 points per possession this season (Synergy), and he's only at 70.0 percent at the line. In other words, his fantasy owners should give a damn about his percentages.
Dec 16 - 12:06 AM

Russell Westbrook notched his ninth triple-double of the season on Wednesday, scoring 10 points with 17 rebounds and 12 assists in 36 minutes vs. the Pacers.

Westbrook added two steals and one 3-pointer tonight. His owners should be accustomed to the downside of his production, however, as he also committed five turnovers while making a mere 3-of-17 field goals and 3-of-7 free throws. He's truly elite in most points leagues, but falls multiple rounds in category-based leagues.
Dec 13 - 10:25 PM

Russell Westbrook hit 10-of-22 shots, a 3-pointer and 9-of-9 3-pointers for 30 points, four rebounds, seven assists and three steals in 36 minutes of Monday's ugly loss to the Hornets.

Westbrook played very well, committing season-low tying two turnovers on the night, and he's totaled just eight Pos over his last three games. And considering he had seven TOs in four straight games before that streak started, we'd say he's making some serious progress there. He's scored at least 30 points in three of his last four, but any MVP talk isn't going to happen unless the 12-14 Thunder turn things around and start winning games in bunches.
Dec 11 - 11:03 PM

Russell Westbrook finished with 20 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds across 43 minutes in Saturday's overtime win at Memphis.

Yes, a triple-double is always nice, but he managed to hit just 7-of-29 from the field while turning it over three times. He was a dismal 1-of-12 from behind the 3-point line. Perhaps his right hip contusion was hindering him somewhat, but at least he was able to play. But he did fantasy owners no favors shooting 24.1 percent from the floor.
Dec 10 - 12:00 AM

Russell Westbrook is not on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

Westbrook picked up a right hip contusion on Thursday vs. the Nets and was apparently battling an illness after the game, but the Thunder fully expect him to play against the Grizzlies. We'll have confirmation after the Saturday morning shootaround.
Dec 8 - 7:28 PM

Russell Westbrook suffered a right hip contusion during Thursday's loss to the Nets.

Westbrook seemed to be hobbled slightly at one point near the end of the game but was never forced to the sideline. He scored a game-high 31 points in 36 minutes of action. Westbrook did not address the media after the game, as he is also apparently dealing with some sort of illness. This situation doesn't sound overly concerning, but we'll certainly keep an eye on it. OKC's next game is Saturday vs. Memphis. We should have an update on Westbrook's status by Friday afternoon.

Dec 8 - 9:30 AM

Russell Westbrook hit just 10-of-27 shots, 2-of-6 3-pointers and 9-of-12 free throws on his way to 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists in Thursday's 100-95 loss to the Nets in Mexico City.

Westbrook triple-doubled on Tuesday and the Thunder had won three straight coming into this one, but just couldn't get it going tonight. This was also just his third game of the season without a steal or a block, but he also committed just three turnovers. Despite the Thunder's struggles and Westbrook's deficiencies, he's still an MVP candidate, assuming the Thunder start winning more games.
Dec 8 - 12:35 AM

Russell Westbrook went off for a 34-point, 13-rebound, 14-assist triple-double, adding a steal, a block, two 3-pointers and seven turnovers in Tuesday's 100-94 win over the Jazz.

Not bad against a team that likes to slow it down, eh? He hit 12-of-25 shots and owners have hopefully given up looking at his turnover numbers each night, as they're usually bad. This was his seventh triple-double of the season, while he's handed out at least 10 assists in three straight games.
Dec 5 - 11:13 PM

Russell Westbrook notched his seventh triple-double of the season on Sunday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two 3-pointers and one steal in 39 minutes.

Westbrook appeared to tweak his left leg/hip after slipping on a wet spot in the fourth quarter, but it didn't cost him any time. We'll keep an eye on his status for Tuesday's home game vs. the Jazz, but will leave him off the injury report. OKC's 10-12 record has them outside the Western Conference playoff picture, and it'll take more than a tweak for Westbrook to miss games.
Dec 3 - 11:26 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 15 points with nine rebounds, 14 assists, two steals and seven turnovers against the Wolves on Friday.

It's his most assists since his 16 against the Pacers on Oct. 25. Interestingly, Westbrook only had 8.2 assists per game in November, which is his worst full month in dimes since January 2015. His hand didn't seem to bother him in this game, but he was 0-of-8 from deep and 6-of-21 from the field overall. He's not going to be as good as last year for his fantasy owners.
Dec 1 - 11:50 PM

Russell Westbrook, Andre Roberson, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George and Steven Adams will start against the Wolves on Friday.

No surprises here and Westbrook has been fully expected to play after his bruised hand on Wednesday. OKC needs a win in the worst way right now with their 8-12 record, but nobody on the team seems to be pressing the panic button. We'll see if Westbrook puts the team on his back like he did in the fourth quarter on Wednesday.
Dec 1 - 6:25 PM

Russ Westbrook (left hand) went through a full practice on Thursday.

He had an X-ray on his left hand, but he only has a bruise. Westbrook's Thunder team is now 8-12 despite being one of the better defensive teams, but it's been their offense holding them back. Westbrook tried to carry his team to a comeback on Wednesday in Orlando to finish with 37 points, but they came up short. They'll get the Wolves on Friday.
Nov 30 - 4:16 PM

Russell Westbrook suffered a bruise to his left hand and X-rays were negative.

He walked to the X-ray room with a trainer to see a doctor, and hopefully this bruise will not cost him time. The Thunder suffered yet another bad loss as they fell to the Magic 121-108, but Westbrook went off with 37 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, five steals and seven 3-pointers. He scored 20 points in the fourth as he tried to will his team back. As the game ended, Westbrook sat on the bench with his head down as his teammates walked back to the locker room. OKC is now 8-12 and hopefully this hand issue won't limit the reigning MVP.
Nov 29 - 10:08 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 28 points with 12 rebounds, nine assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes during an embarrassing 97-81 loss to the West's last-place Mavericks.

Uh oh. That gets them to just 8-11 to tie them with the Lakers for ninth in the West. OKC isn't winning games at just 1-4 over the last five, but Westbrook is doing damage. In those five, he averaged 25.2 points, 11.6 boards, 10.0 assists, 2.2 treys and 1.6 treys. He's still struggling as a shooter, but his fantasy owners knew that was going to be a problem when they drafted him.
