Russell Westbrook played again on Wednesday and hit 6-of-14 shots and 11-of-12 free throws for 23 points, 13 rebounds, 15 assists, one steal and two blocks in 37 minutes.
He was 0-for-4 from downtown, but notched his 17th triple-double of the season, while he's missed several others by just a point, rebound or assist. The Thunder are the currently the No. 5 seed in the West, but sit just one game ahead of the Nuggets, Pelicans and Blazers, while the Clippers are just 1.5 games back, and the Jazz are 2.5 games back. Westbrook is going to have to continue to play at a high level while they chase the Timberwolves and Spurs, and try to hold off all the pursuers. Westbrook's ankle appears to be fine and he'll hopefully be able to get a little rest during the All-Star break. Feb 14 - 11:54 PM

Russell Westbrook was back from his sore ankle on Tuesday and hit 7-of-19 shots and 7-of-8 free throws for 21 points, seven rebounds, 12 assists and two steals in a 120-112 loss to the Cavaliers.

Westy missed his previous two games, but wasn't on a minutes limit tonight and is fully expected to play again on Wednesday. He didn't have a 3-pointer tonight and his shot wasn't exactly sharp, but at least he's back. Paul George managed to score 25 points with a nice line, even with Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony back from their two-game hiatus.
Feb 13 - 11:40 PM

Coach Billy Donovan said that both Russell Westbrook (ankle) and Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will play Tuesday vs. Cleveland.

Great news for Westbrook owners, as not only will Russ start on Tuesday, but coach Donovan also said that Westbrook will not have a minutes restriction. In addition, both Westbrook and Melo are expected to play Wednesday vs. Memphis as well. Make sure Russ is locked and loaded in fantasy lineups this evening. Raymond Felton will get bumped back to the bench as well as Patrick Patterson.
Feb 13 - 6:22 PM

Russell Westbrook (ankle) and Carmelo Anthony (ankle) both went through shootaround but will be game-time decisions for Tuesday's matchup vs. Cleveland.

Both Westbrook and Melo have each missed the last two games; however, they appear to be trending in the right direction. Westbrook practiced on Monday, although most of it was non-contact work. It is also important to note that Tuesday is the front end of a back-to-back for OKC, as they also play Wednesday vs. Memphis. Then, they have a full week off before returning to action February 22nd. Raymond Felton will draw another start if Westbrook is ruled out.

Russell Westbrook (ankle) practiced on Monday, but most of it was non-contact work.

This is a good sign after Westbrook sat out of OKC's last two games. Coach Billy Donovan didn't update Westbrook's status for Tuesday's game vs. the Cavaliers, but added that it will be determined after the morning shootaround. If he's out, expect Paul George to carry the Thunder with Raymond Felton providing low-end fantasy numbers as the fill-in starter.
Feb 12 - 2:21 PM

Russell Westbrook (ankle) and Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

This will be the second straight game on the sidelines for these two, which isn't very surprising given they didn't practice on Saturday. Raymond Felton and Patrick Patterson started in their place on Thursday, and it'll likely be more of the same tonight, but Paul George is the guy you want to target in DFS. The Thunder take on the Cavs on Tuesday, and for now, we'll be considering Westbrook and Melo questionable for that one.

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) and Russell Westbrook (ankle) will be game-time decisions on Sunday against the Grizzlies.

Both did not practice on Saturday after they missed Thursday's action against the Lakers. Westbrook's injury hasn't caused much concern, but the Thunder apparently want him to take it easy. Besides his two-year stretch with knee issues, Westbrook has been extremely durably despite his sky-high usage. We'll see if he goes through shootaround tomorrow.
Feb 10 - 2:16 PM

Russell Westbrook (ankle) and Carmelo Anthony (ankle) are out Thursday against the Lakers.

This comes as a shock and Westbrook will miss his first game of the 2017-18 season. The TNT broadcast showed Westbrook walking around just fine, so presumably the team is just being very cautious. With him out, we'll see a lot of Raymond Felton at the point. Paul George could have a monster night, too.
Feb 8 - 9:34 PM

Russell Westbrook (left ankle) and Carmelo Anthony (right ankle) are both going to be game-time calls for Thursday's game vs. the Lakers.

They went through shootaround, so they're likely closer to probable than questionable. Westbrook looked awesome at Oracle Arena, and we're fully expecting him to play. He has been on a tear lately and OKC's offense has looked as good as it has been since the Kevin Durant days.
Feb 8 - 2:13 PM

Russell Westbrook (left ankle) and Carmelo Anthony (right ankle) are both questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Lakers.

Westbrook has yet to miss a game this season and he dropped 34/9/9 on Tuesday, so presumably this is nothing serious. Owners should check for updates in the afternoon. If he is forced to miss time we'd expect Raymond Felton to be very busy.
Feb 7 - 7:49 PM

Russell Westbrook put up 34 points, nine rebounds, nine assists, two triples and four turnovers in 36 minutes vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

The Thunder improved to 2-0 against Golden State this season, winning both games by a combined 42 points. Westbrook set the tone early with 21 points in the first quarter, but got a ton of help from Paul George (38 points, six steals and steals) to put this game away early. Westy was 13-of-26 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line, helping OKC snap a four-game losing streak. He gets the Lakers on Thursday.
Feb 7 - 2:11 AM

Russell Westbrook did all he could to deliver a win for the Thunder on Sunday, but ultimately his 36 points, nine assists, five rebounds and one steal were not enough.

OKC has now dropped four in a row, and they're now 1-4 ever since Andre Roberson (knee) hit the sidelines. The offense hasn't been too much of an issue, but the effort they've displayed on the defensive end has been fairly awful, as the current starting group of Westbrook-Terrance Ferguson-Paul George-Carmelo Anthony-Steven Adams owns a horrendous 121.5 defensive rating. "We never flinch based on what's going on," said Westbrook after the game. "We always stay together."
Feb 4 - 5:45 PM

Russell Westbrook will not punished for his incident on Thursday night.

In case you missed it, Westbrook shoved a fan who shouldn't have been on the court after the loss in Denver. The league made the right call here and there was only a small chance Westbrook would've been suspended, but they have been hard on players for making contact with fans for obvious reasons. Westbrook could have a monster game against the Pelicans tonight.
Feb 2 - 5:29 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 20 points with nine rebounds, 21 assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

The dimes were great, that's his second 20-20 the season, and he was electric down the stretch, but the last minutes of the game were the takeaway here. Westbrook was burned by Gary Harris for a game-winning three and Nikola Jokic saw that. "I think Russell fell asleep," Jokic said on TNT. After the loss, Westbrook shoved a fan on the court and there's no doubt the league will be looking at this (video in link below). Obviously the fan shouldn't have been there, but the NBA doesn't want its players pushing fans. His fantasy owners will want to make sure he's a go for Friday night because of a possible suspension.
Feb 2 - 1:32 AM

Russell Westbrook hit just 5-of-18 shots and 1-of-4 3-pointers for 13 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, four steals and seven turnovers in a 102-96 loss to the Wizards, who were without John Wall.

Tomas Satoransky and Tim Frazier both did a nice job on Westy defensively tonight, and this wasn't his worst game of the season, as he's had several games that garnered fewer points and more missed shots than he had tonight. Westbrook had scored between 31 and 46 points in each of his last four games, so maybe he was just due for an off night. He'll bounce back against the Nuggets on Thursday. Carmelo Anthony wasn't much better, hitting just 7-of-21 shots on the night, as the Thunder saw their eight-game winning streak come to an end.
