Dennis Schroder played 32 minutes off the bench on Sunday and had 14 points, eight assists, four rebounds and one steal.

Russell Westbrook's return was the elephant in the room for Schroder's owners, but they shared the backcourt extensively and closed the game, so it's an arrangement coach Billy Donovan obviously trusts. As long as Schroder is earning 30+ minutes he should hit value, especially if his shots start falling -- he's a combined 14-of-50 through three games (28.0%).

Russell Westbrook (right knee surgery) looked just fine in his season debut Sunday, scoring 32 points on 13-of-23 FGs with 12 rebounds and eight assists.

Westbrook wound up missing only two regular season games, which is music to the ears of owners who got him at an injury-discount. The only bad news for owners is that he was 5-of-11 at the line with five turnovers and zero defensive stats, but hey, it was his first game back. He wasn't playing with a minute-limit tonight, which is more good news, but we've yet to hear how OKC will handle him in back-to-back situations -- they have two sets coming up on Nov. 1-2 and 7-8.

Raymond Felton fell out of OKC's rotation on Sunday.

Felton had 12 points, four boards and three assists in 18 minutes on Friday, but wasn't needed with Russell Westbrook back in action tonight. He's unlikely to earn minutes while Westy and Dennis Schroder are healthy.

Nerlens Noel fouled out in just 13 minutes on Sunday.

It's disappointing for fantasy owners because Noel was great while on the court with six points on 3-of-3 shooting, five rebounds and two blocks. He's given OKC's second unit a welcome boost in the middle, but as long as Steven Adams is healthy his role is unlikely to exceed the 14-18 minute range.

Hamidou Diallo played a career-high 21 minutes and hit 5-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for a career-high 11 points, one rebound, two assist and two steals in Sunday's loss to the Thunder.

He had a great preseason and generated some hype, but played just nine minutes in each of his first two games this season. He came through with some production with tonight's 21 ticks, but he'll need to start getting that regularly before he'll be worth a look in standard leagues. Go ahead and put him on your radar.

Alex Abrines didn't return to Sunday's game after leaving early with bruised mouth.

Abrines got accidentally clocked by teammate Nerlens Noel's shoulder -- he was initially expected to return but the Thunder opted to play it safe. There's been no suggestion that he's in the league's concussion protocol, and he gets a few days to rest before Thursday's home game.
Oct 21 - 9:50 PM

Patrick Patterson struggled on Sunday with four points on 1-of-6 shooting, with all of his attempts coming from downtown.

The Kings gave up an average of 14.5 triples to their first two opponents, but OKC couldn't cash in tonight with a brutal 9-of-39 mark from distance. Pat-Pat didn't help himself elsewhere with just two rebounds, and his timeshare with Jerami Grant (seven points in 28 minutes) is doing neither guy any favors.
Oct 21 - 9:48 PM

Harry Giles played 17 minutes and hit 4-of-10 shots for a season-high eight points, a season-high six rebounds, two assists, his first steal of the season, and his first two blocks of the season in Sunday's 131-120 win over the Thunder.

Willie Cauley-Stein was in early foul trouble, but Giles saw his normal minutes tonight. He's averaging 10.5 field goal attempts over his last two games and was really active tonight. But until he starts getting 25 minutes a night, he's going to be tough to use in most fantasy leagues. But tonight was a step in the right direction.
