Russell Westbrook piled up 31 points, 10 assists, five rebounds, five 3-pointers and one block during Sunday's tough 115-113 loss to the visiting Wolves. In OKC's first two games this year, Westbrook's usage rate had fallen to 27.2 percent -- nowhere near last year's 41.4 percent. Meanwhile, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George both had slight increases in their usage from last year. With the game hanging in the balance tonight, however, Westbrook had the ball in his hands on every possession. He made clutch baskets, found Carmelo Anthony for a critical 3-pointer, and generally looked like the offensive 'alpha'. That's what his owners want to see.

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled on Thursday during a 105-84 win over the Knicks on Thursday, making 7-of-12 from the field for 21 points, 10 rebounds, 16 assists, one block and seven turnovers in 33 minutes. He had some help and his NBA all-time record 40.8 usage rate from 2016-17 plummeted to 27.8 today. Although, his efficiency was outstanding and the OKC offense was flying at a 107.5 pace. Also unlike last year, he had help almost the entire time with either Carmelo Anthony or Paul George next to him for 32 of his 33 minutes, and was with both for 19. Westbrook won't be blowing us away in the scoring department like late last year, but he's still going to post some big lines for his fantasy owners.

Russell Westbrook found his shot on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets with 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting. It's good to see Westy shake off the rust after shooting 3-of-10 in his previous outing. He played 26 minutes tonight after playing 28 on Sunday, so the concerns about his knee are probably a bit overblown. He added seven assists with one rebound, one steal, two triples and three turnovers and hasn't done anything to suggest that he's not a top-5 pick in fantasy. He'll be just fine alongside Melo and PG-13.

Russell Westbrook struggled with his shot during Sunday's exhibition game, going 3-of-10 from the field on his way to nine points, five boards, seven assists, one steal and three turnovers. Westbrook is still shaking off some rust after having his preseason delayed due to the PRP injection in his left knee, but the major positive here is that he's shown no ill effects from that minor knee procedure. While he has been somewhat passive on offense as he works himself back into things (23.9 usage rate), that's not a trend we'd expect to continue into the regular season. Don't let a slow preseason start cause Westbrook to slip out of the top-5 on draft day.
