Russell Westbrook turned in his ninth triple-double of the season during a 126-115 overtime win over the Wizards on Wednesday, scoring 35 points with 14 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, five turnovers and one 3-pointer.

He is tied in triple-doubles with the entire league combined this season. Westbrook is also just the third player to average a triple-double for a calendar month with at least 10 games in that span. He went bonkers in overtime with 14 points thanks to his ridiculous 70.4 usage rate in that time. Not surprisingly, he's leading the NBA in usage rate at 40.3 to go with his triple-double average on the season. He'll look for his fifth straight trip-dub against the Pelicans on Sunday.
Dec 1 - 12:51 AM

Andre Roberson scored 10 points with five rebounds, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He did suffer a minor injury earlier in the game, but he returned and looked fine. There's no word of any additional evaluation or any injury update, so he's good to go. Roberson is only a low-end hold in deeper leagues due to a low upside.
Dec 1 - 12:37 AM

Victor Oladipo scored 25 points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 45 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

Besides an eight-point hiccup on Monday, Oladipo has been on cruise control. In his last nine games, Oladipo averaged 19.8 points, 5.4 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.4 steals, 2.8 treys and 2.0 turnovers on 54.9 percent from the field. It took a while for the well-rounded stat lines to come, but they are definitely here now. Keep him rolling as an early-round guy going forward.
Dec 1 - 12:34 AM

Anthony Morrow made 5-of-7 field goals and scored 14 points in just 19 minutes against the Knicks on Monday.

Morrow has scored double-digit points in three consecutive games and has made eight three pointers in that span. He is heating up, shooting 8-of-13 from beyond the arc in the last three contests and has played at least 19 minutes in each of those games. But in such limited minutes, it won't take much of a shooting slump to knock him out of the fantasy conversation going forward.
Nov 28 - 11:01 PM

Steven Adams went 7-of-11 from the field, scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 boards in 31 minutes against the Knicks.

Adams recorded his third double-double in the month of November. He is averaging 31.2 minutes per game this season and accounts for 25.4 percent of the Thunder’s rebounds. Despite a low usage rate, his contributions under the rim, his field goal percentage, and ability to block shots, make him a decent center option in fantasy leagues.
Nov 28 - 10:56 PM

Enes Kanter went 12-of-17 from the field, scoring 27 points, grabbing 10 rebounds, and blocking three shots in 28 minutes on Monday night.

Kanter was very efficient when he was on the court against the Knicks, recording a double-double in 28 minutes of play. He is averaging 19.2 minutes per game, but has played over 20 minutes in three of his last six games off of the bench. Since November 7th, he is averaging 15.8 points, eight rebounds, and one block per game, in any game he has played more than 20 minutes.
Nov 28 - 10:43 PM

Victor Oladipo shot 4-of-11 from the field and went 0-of-4 from beyond the arc on Monday night against the Knicks.

After scoring at least 18 points in three consecutive games and double-digit points in seven straight games, Oladipo scored just eight points in Monday’s win against the Knicks. It was an off shooting night for him and the first game he did not make a three pointer since November 13th. He looks to get back on track on Wednesday against the Wizards.
Nov 28 - 10:21 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 27 points, grabbed 18 rebounds, and dished out 14 assists in 36 minutes.

Westbrook went 9-of-23 from the field and 2-of-3 beyond the arc in Monday night’s win against the Knicks, the third straight for the Thunder. He recorded his eighth triple-double of the season just 20 minutes into the game and is now on pace for roughly 32 triple-doubles. He is the only other player aside from Oscar Roberson to average a triple-double this late into the season. The Thunder’s offense continues to funnel through Westbrook as he leads the team with a 40.2 percent usage rate and accounts for 54.5 percent of the teams assists. He should continue to post huge numbers on this offense.
Nov 28 - 10:17 PM

Russell Westbrook posted another triple-double during a 106-88 win over the Pistons on Saturday, scoring 17 points with 13 rebounds, 15 assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers.

This is just too easy for him. He tied LeBron James with his 44th triple-double of his career and did it with 395 fewer games. Westbrook also passed Fat Lever for sixth all-time and trails Larry Bird by 15. Coming off an 18-dime game, Westbrook has back-to-back 15-plus assists games for the first time in his career. He also just missed averaging 10.0 boards per game by just one board tonight, so he's averaging 31.2 points, 11.2 dimes and 9.94 boards on the season. If he gets 11 rebounds on Monday against the Knicks, he'll be averaging a triple-double for the season.
Nov 26 - 11:43 PM

Victor Oladipo scored 18 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

He has been remarkably consistent in his last seven games with at least 14 points and multiple treys in each game. In that span, Oladipo averaged 20.7 points, 5.7 boards, 4.6 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.9 treys on 55.7 percent from the field. He's getting shots at the rim, dominating in the corners and has seen an increase in usage rate in that span. He looks like the stud his owners drafted early.
Nov 26 - 11:26 PM

Anthony Morrow scored a season-high 21 points against the Pistons on Saturday with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He shockingly started his season 0-of-11 from deep, but Morrow has turned it around making 6-of-9 of his latest attempts. Morrow's minutes have increased in each of his last three games, but he's likely just going to be used situationally anyway. He's only worth a look if you're desperate for treys in a deep league.
Nov 26 - 11:19 PM

Steven Adams was saddled with foul trouble for most of Friday's game in Denver, finishing with seven points, five rebounds, two steals and one assist in 30 minutes.

Adams scored 20 points on Tuesday and he's dismissed concerns about his injured right hand, so owners just have to shrug off tonight's quiet performance. His foul trouble was part of the reason the Nuggets scored 62 points in the paint, but OKC overcame the disadvantage to steal a 132-129 win in overtime. Adams, who has returned top-75 value in 8-cat and 9-cat, draws a tough matchup vs. Andre Drummond on Saturday.
Nov 26 - 12:06 AM

Victor Oladipo had another excellent game on Friday with 26 points on 11-of-19 shooting, a season-high seven assists, four rebounds, three steals, two 3-pointers and just one turnover in 42 minutes.

Oladipo is cruising after a very slow start to the season, and this is his fourth straight game with at least 14 points, two 3-pointers and a steal. The supporting stats have picked up and he once again resembles the player owners thought they were getting on draft day. Congrats if you bought low on him a few weeks ago.
Nov 26 - 12:05 AM

Russell Westbrook piled up a season-high 18 assists during an overtime win in Denver on Friday, adding 36 points (9-of-25 FGs, 15-of-17 FTs), 12 rebounds, three 3-pointers, one block and seven turnovers.

Westbrook is the only player since at least 1983-84 to post a minimum of 36/18/12 in a game. He's scored 30+ points in eight straight games, a streak that was in danger of being snapped until he caught fire in the fourth quarter, and his fantasy owners are reveling in ridiculous production on a nightly basis. There's no reason to think he'll slow down.
Nov 26 - 12:04 AM

Joffrey Lauvergne got hot off the bench vs. Denver on Friday, hitting 6-of-8 shots for a season-high 15 points with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, one steal and one block in 18 minutes.

Steven Adams' foul trouble resulted in more minutes for Lauvergne, who has yet to score double-digit points in consecutive games this season. He's shooting the lights out lately but doesn't get enough playing time to be worth adding in standard leagues.
