Russell Westbrook scored 19 points with 16 rebounds, nine assists, one steal and 10 turnovers before he was ejected with 2:51 to play against the Kings on Monday. Westbrook thought he was fouled on a layup attempt and completely lost it on the refs, picking up a double technical in the process. He'll be fined by the NBA, but his fantasy owners don't have to worry about a suspension. He finished 8-of-14 from the field, but hit just 3-of-7 from the line in what was a very inefficient night. This was the 8th game of his career with 10 or more turnovers, but he should have a monster night against the Lakers on Wednesday to make up for it.

Westbrook scored 25 points (10-27 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block in 37 minutes during Saturday's 101-91 win over the Hornets. The double-double was Westbrook's third straight -- for most players, that would be an impressive streak, but for the reigning MVP it just means he's fallen short of adding to his historic triple-double collection. He's got another under-the-radar streak going as well, recording multiple steals in four straight games and at least one theft in 19 straight, pushing Westbrook closer to the career-high 2.1 per game he established in 2014-15.

Russell Westbrook finished with 25 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 37 minutes in Saturday's 101-91 win at Charlotte. It was just another average night at the office for Westbrook, who hit 10-of-27 from the field while hitting 5-of-7 from the free-throw line. He has managed at least one steal in 19 consecutive games, perhaps an underrated part of his game. Better yet, he has turned the ball over just seven total times over the past two outings.

Russell Westbrook went for 38 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and four steals across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 104-88 loss at Minnesota. Westbrook was pretty careful with his shot and the ball in this one, hitting 15-of-23 from the field while turning it over just four times. Unfortunately for Westbrook the rest of his teammates decided to take the night off. The Thunder are in a nosedive, losing three in a row and five of the past seven, but Westbrook continues to persevere regardless of the win-loss column.

Westbrook scored 38 points (15-23 FG, 1-2 3PtT, 7-9 FT) to go with 10 rebounds, five assists and four steals across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 104-88 loss to Minnesota. As of late, Westbrook is on the type of run that made him league MVP a year ago. After Wednesday's performance, the guard has collected seven double-doubles in his last 11 games. The other four games resulted in triple-doubles. Averaging 30.0 points, 9.7 rebounds and 10.9 assists in 11 games, Westbrook is dominating in all of the main statistical categories as he is want to do. Next up are the Hornets, who will be tasked to contain Westbrook on Saturday.

Westbrook recorded 22 points (7-20 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 12 assists, nine rebounds, three steals and two blocks across 35 minutes during a 117-106 loss to the Trail Blazers on Tuesday. Westbrook fell just one rebound shy of his third consecutive triple-double in the losing effort. The two blocks were a surprise, as it marked a new season high for him. Westbrook struggled with his shot in the loss, as the 35 percent shooting percentage marked his worst shooting effort since Dec. 15.

Russell Westbrook hit 7-of-20 shots and a 3-pointer for 22 points, nine rebounds, 12 assists, three steals, two blocks and six turnovers in a 117-106 loss to the Blazers. This was a bad loss for OKC after falling to Phoenix on Sunday, while this is the sixth time this season Westy has missed a triple-double by just one assist or one rebound. The turnovers and poor shooting continue, but the guy just puts up monster numbers every time out. Paul George, Carmelo Anthony and Steven Adams all scored between 16 and 22 points, but the Thunder didn't have an answer for the Blazers tonight.

Westbrook posted 26 points (11-21 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-7 FT), 11 assists, 10 rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes during Sunday's 114-100 loss to the Suns. Fantasy-wise it was business as usual for Westbrook, although he uncharacteristically shot less than 50 percent from the charity stripe where he usually excels. Even with the added talent around him, he's still on pace to join the MVP conversation, but an overall lack of consistency on the team is resulting in losses to less talented teams. Expect Westbrook to have another elite stat line against Portland on Tuesday.

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled in a losing effort on Sunday with 26 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in 34 minutes vs. the Suns. Westbrook hit 11-of-21 field goals but he was 3-of-7 from the FT line, while committing six turnovers. The poor FT shooting is an ongoing concern. Fantasy owners expected brutal turnovers (4.5 per game) and FG percentages (43.2% on 21.2 attempts), but Westbrook has also plummetted from a career-high 84.5% FT shooting last season to a career-low 71.8% this season. An upward correction seems inevitable, so roto owners should hang in there.

Russell Westbrook recorded his 13th triple-double on the season during a 127-117 win over the Clippers on Thursday, scoring 29 points with 12 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. The OKC offense continues to clean up when they win games, posting a 122.0 over their last seven wins -- they're also ridiculous on the road lately and still have a 107.0 offensive rating in their last two losses. A big reason why is Westbrook's efficiency has been very consistent lately with at least a 52.2 TS% in each of his last 11 games. Obviously everyone loves his triple-doubles and he's still just 13 away from passing Jason Kidd for third on the all-time list. His fantasy owners are feeling a lot better these days.
