Russell Westbrook notched his ninth triple-double of the season on Wednesday, scoring 10 points with 17 rebounds and 12 assists in 36 minutes vs. the Pacers. Westbrook added two steals and one 3-pointer tonight. His owners should be accustomed to the downside of his production, however, as he also committed five turnovers while making a mere 3-of-17 field goals and 3-of-7 free throws. He's truly elite in most points leagues, but falls multiple rounds in category-based leagues.

Westbrook scored 10 points (3-17 FG, 1-3 3PT, 3-7 FT) to go with 17 rebounds, 12 assists and two steals across 36 minutes in Wednesday's 100-95 win against Indiana. If a player has ever struggled to reach a triple-double, Westbrook did just that on Wednesday. While the guard did collect 12 assists and 17 rebounds, he did not collect his tenth point until he sank a free throw with less than two minutes to go in the fourth quarter. Aside from netting his ninth triple-double, Westbrook saw his five game streak of 20-plus point performances snapped against Indiana. The source of Westbrook's lackluster scoring was his 3-of-17 shooting from the floor. Statistically, Westbrook's triple-double counts the same as the others. However, his 17.6 percent shooting performance takes most of the shine off of a sparking night in the assist and rebound columns.

Westbrook tallied 30 points (10-22 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 9-9 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and three steals in 36 minutes during Monday's 116-103 loss to Charlotte. The Thunder suffered another devastating loss Monday, going down to the Charlotte Hornets. Westbrook led the team in scoring with 30 points but did not deliver his normal amount of other stats. After a couple of poor performances from the free-throw line, he recovered here, hitting 9-of-9 from the charity stripe. The Thunder will travel to Indiana to face former teammate Victor Oladipo and the Pacers on Wednesday, in what promises to be another tough matchup.

Russell Westbrook hit 10-of-22 shots, a 3-pointer and 9-of-9 3-pointers for 30 points, four rebounds, seven assists and three steals in 36 minutes of Monday's ugly loss to the Hornets. Westbrook played very well, committing season-low tying two turnovers on the night, and he's totaled just eight Pos over his last three games. And considering he had seven TOs in four straight games before that streak started, we'd say he's making some serious progress there. He's scored at least 30 points in three of his last four, but any MVP talk isn't going to happen unless the 12-14 Thunder turn things around and start winning games in bunches.

Westbrook posted 20 points (7-29 FG, 1-12 3pt, 5-8 FT), 11 rebounds, 14 assists and a steal across 43 minutes in Saturday's 102-101 OT win over the Grizzlies. Westbrook recorded a triple-double despite a horrific shooting night, but he hit two game-winning free throws with five seconds left in overtime to seal the win. He made only one of 12 attempts from beyond the arc and only made six more out of 17 elsewhere on the floor. He did what he needed to do in the other categories to make for an excellent fantasy performance.

Russell Westbrook finished with 20 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds across 43 minutes in Saturday's overtime win at Memphis. Yes, a triple-double is always nice, but he managed to hit just 7-of-29 from the field while turning it over three times. He was a dismal 1-of-12 from behind the 3-point line. Perhaps his right hip contusion was hindering him somewhat, but at least he was able to play. But he did fantasy owners no favors shooting 24.1 percent from the floor.

Russell Westbrook is not on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. Memphis. Westbrook picked up a right hip contusion on Thursday vs. the Nets and was apparently battling an illness after the game, but the Thunder fully expect him to play against the Grizzlies. We'll have confirmation after the Saturday morning shootaround.

Russell Westbrook suffered a right hip contusion during Thursday's loss to the Nets. Westbrook seemed to be hobbled slightly at one point near the end of the game but was never forced to the sideline. He scored a game-high 31 points in 36 minutes of action. Westbrook did not address the media after the game, as he is also apparently dealing with some sort of illness. This situation doesn't sound overly concerning, but we'll certainly keep an eye on it. OKC's next game is Saturday vs. Memphis. We should have an update on Westbrook's status by Friday afternoon.

Westbrook finished with 31 points (10-27 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 9-12 FT), eight rebounds, and six assists across 35 minutes in Thursday's 100-95 loss to the Nets. Westbrook was a one-man offense Thursday, but could not get his team over the line in Brooklyn. With Paul George (calf) s a late scratching, Westbrook was required to shoulder more of the load. His efficiency has been an issue this season, and he is currently sitting at 40 percent from the floor for the season. This will likely come up somewhat but could remain a weakness as the season progresses. He is still an elite fantasy option, but it not going to be the stud he was last season.

Russell Westbrook hit just 10-of-27 shots, 2-of-6 3-pointers and 9-of-12 free throws on his way to 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists in Thursday's 100-95 loss to the Nets in Mexico City.. Westbrook triple-doubled on Tuesday and the Thunder had won three straight coming into this one, but just couldn't get it going tonight. This was also just his third game of the season without a steal or a block, but he also committed just three turnovers. Despite the Thunder's struggles and Westbrook's deficiencies, he's still an MVP candidate, assuming the Thunder start winning more games.
