Russell Westbrook struggled shooting on Thursday, making just 7-of-30 shots for 26 points with nine rebounds, 13 assists, one block, one steal and five 3-pointers in 43 minutes against the Lakers.
Westbrook made just 2-of-18 of his 2-point field goals in this one, but did knock down a season-high five triples to help make up for it. He also made 7-of-10 from the free throw line, including three at the end of regulation to tie the game and sent it to overtime. There was just a 26.5% chance of him making all three foul shots based on his season FT%, but the former MVP came up clutch. Russ' FT% is trending up of late, sitting at 75% over the last five games.

Russell Westbrook made 9-of-24 shots for 24 points on Saturday against the Spurs, adding 10 rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and four turnovers in 33 minutes.

Westbrook took a hard fall and came up grabbing his left wrist, but stayed in the game and didn't miss any action. His free throw percentage has been way down this season, but he made 5-of-5 from the line in this one. He's double-doubled in four straight and is averaging a triple-double over his last five games and on the season. Russ has been better in points leagues due to his percentages, but he's still putting up ridiculous numbers across the board and helping fantasy owners in all formats.

Russell Westbrook handed out a career-high 24 assists during a 154-147 double-overtime loss to the Spurs on Thursday, adding 24 points, 13 rebounds, two steals and three turnovers in 50 minutes.

Those 24 dimes are tied for the most in a triple-double in NBA history, and Westbrook notches his second 20-point, 20-dime triple-double of his career with nobody else this century having even one. The 24 dimes are the most in a game since 2017 when Rajon Rondo dropped 25 and this massive output now gets him to 10.7 per game to give him a 1.1 cushion for the lead in the NBA (Kyle Lowry 9.6). He's averaging a triple-double, leads the NBA in steals, and is one of the best counting-stat guys in NBA history.
Jan 11 - 1:47 AM

Russell Westbrook hit 9-of-23 shots, two 3-pointers and 2-of-6 free throws for 22 points, 15 rebounds, 13 assists, a steal and eight turnovers in Sunday's ugly 116-98 loss to the Wizards.

Westbrook has triple-doubled in three of his last four games, but his shot isn't falling much these days, nor are his free throws. He's shooting just 36 percent from the floor and 70 percent from the line over his last five games. He picked up his 12th trip-dub of the year with almost four minutes left in the third quarter. Paul George added 20 points and Steven Adams had 12 points, eight boards and two steals in the loss.
Jan 6 - 9:15 PM

Russell Westbrook bounced back from a rough shooting effort with 31 points on 13-of-28 from the field, adding nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three turnovers in 37 minutes against the Blazers on Friday.

After making just 3-of-20 shots last time out, Westbrook scored at least 30 points for the third time in his last five games. In between those 30-point outings, he's had two of his worst shooting games of the season. His shooting percentages haven't been this low since his second year in the league. Russ' efficiency is concerning, but he's still averaging a triple-double on the season.
Jan 5 - 1:50 AM

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled again on Wednesday with 14 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists, despite shooting 3-of-20 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line.

Westbrook also picked up his 12th technical foul of the season. When he hits 16 techs he'll be assessed a mandatory one-game suspension. He's now one tech ahead of Andre Drummond (11) in this dubious category. Scoring, rebounds, assists and steals are rarely a concern for Westbrook, but his fantasy value is damaged in leagues that count efficiency -- he's shooting 42.6% from the field, 62.1% from the line and committing 4.6 turnovers per game.
Jan 3 - 1:31 AM

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled in a 122-102 win over the Mavericks on Monday with 32 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, four steals and five turnovers in 34 minutes.

He was 13-of-24 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line, so this was a nice bounce-back effort after his 4-fo-22 shooting performance on Sunday. Apart from his assists and steals, the rest of his stats are down across the board in his age-30 season along with his shooting percentages. That explains why he's sitting just inside the top-40 in standard 9-category leagues, well below his ADP.
Mon, Dec 31, 2018 10:39:00 PM

Russell Westbrook shot 4-of-22 from the field and missed a potential game-winner vs. the Mavs on Sunday, finishing with nine points, nine rebounds, eight assists and six steals.

Only 53 players have made four or fewer shots on 22+ attempts, according to Basketball-Reference, with Westbrook doing it twice. The list includes unlikely names like Marc Gasol, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett, and this simply wasn't Westbrook's night shooting the ball. His supporting stats prevented a wipeout for fantasy purposes, as usual, and he'll get an immediate chance for retribution with the Mavs visiting OKC on Monday.

Russell Westbrook went off for a season-high 40 points in a 118-102 win over the Suns on Friday.

He basically turned back into the 2016 version of himself with Paul George out tonight with a minor injury, as he had a 38.0 usage rate compared to his season average of 29.7. Westy finished 17-of-29 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line with six turnovers, adding 12 rebounds, eight assists and three triples. He's been letting George do a lot of heavy lifting for the Thunder offense this season, but it's nice to know that Westy can still turn on the jets in his age-30 season.

Russell Westbrook scored 21 points on 6-of-20 shooting Tuesday, to go with two 3-pointers, nine rebounds, nine assists, four steals, one block and six turnovers in 38 minutes.

Westbrook had a tough time getting his shot to fall, although he was better at the charity stripe, going 7-of-10 from the line. Unfortunately, he also picked up his 10th technical of the year, so he just has six more to go before invoking a mandatory one-game suspension. With 49 games left to go for OKC, Westbrook will need to do a better job of controlling his temper.

Russell Westbrook had his ninth triple-double of the season on Sunday with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in 36 minutes, making 10-of-19 shots with one steal and one 3-pointer.

OKC's four-game win streak ended tonight but they're still in the top three, alongside Denver and Golden State. Only 4.5 games separate the No. 1 and No. 9 seeds, so they can't exactly afford to ease up, and they've shown zero inclination to limit Westbrook despite his offseason right knee surgery. Rough percentages and turnovers have conspired to limit his roto value, but he's still averaging a triple-double for the third straight season. Unreal.

Russell Westbrook had a tough go of it Saturday vs. the Jazz, shooting 3-of-17 from the field and finishing with eight points, 12 rebounds, nine assists and three steals in 35 minutes.

Westbrook, who fouled out in the game's final seconds, failed to score in double figures for the first time this season. The good news is that he managed to contribute in other areas, but overall this was a frustrating night for the former MVP. And over the last five games, Westbrook is shooting just 30.9% from the field, 31.3% from three and 61.1% from the foul line. While he's a threat to post a triple-double almost every time out, Russ needs to get his groove back shooting-wise.
Sun, Dec 23, 2018 12:21:00 AM

Russell Westbrook piled up 19 points, a season-high-tying 17 assists, 11 rebounds and six steals during Wednesday's impressive road win vs. the Kings on Wednesday.

OKC has the league's best defensive rating, allowing a mere 101.7 points per 100 possessions, and they very nearly hit that mark tonight (102.4 defensive rating). A big part of their success is Westbrook and Paul George locking down the perimeter, and the steals are off the charts -- Westbrook has 25 steals in the past five games, which is almost unheard of.
Thu, Dec 20, 2018 01:05:00 AM

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled in a 121-96 win over the Bulls on Monday, scoring 13 points with 16 rebounds and 11 assists.

This was his seventh triple-double of the season and 111th of his career. He finished 5-of-13 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line with four turnovers, adding five steals in 32 minutes. Westy has an absurd 19 steals in his last four games which has bumped him up to a league-leading 2.5 per game as he continues to dominate four categories (points, rebounds, assists and steals) for his fantasy owners. His lack of triples, poor percentages and high turnovers have held his value in check, though.
Mon, Dec 17, 2018 11:46:00 PM

Russell Westbrook scored 13 points (4-of-17 FG, 2-of-3 FT) with 12 rebounds, nine assists, six steals and three 3 pointers in 36 minutes Saturday vs. the Clippers.

Westbrook didn't shoot the ball particularly well Saturday (1-of-13 2PT), but he managed to have an impact in other areas as he's wont to do. Over his last five games, the 2017 NBA MVP is averaging 11.4 rebounds, 10.0 assists and 3.8 steals per game. But while Westbrook has been good in those areas, fantasy owners would love to see him snap out of his current shooting funk (34.5% FG, 32.0% 3PT in his last five games).
