Russell Westbrook should make a full recovery | 05/18/2013 1:04 PM
NewsThunder GM Sam Presti said Russell Westbrook (knee surgery) is expected to make a full recovery and should be the same player he was before the injury.
Royce Young on Twitter
ImpactWestbrook should get a firmer rehab timetable once he sheds his crutches within the next month. At that point, we'll have a better idea of when he can begin working out and eventually resume basketball activities. Westbrook should be completely healed and ready to go by the start of training camp.
Westbrook on crutches for another 4-5 weeks | 05/09/2013 10:39 AM
NewsRussell Westbrook (knee surgery) is expected to remain on crutches for "another four or five weeks" before receiving a "firmer timetable."
Royce Young on Twitter
ImpactThose hoping for a miraculous Westbrook return should stop holding their breath. His lateral meniscus tear will keep him on the shelf for the remainder of the season, but he should have plenty of time to rehab and be ready to go by the time training camp rolls around.
Russell Westbrook (knee) out for season | 04/27/2013 2:48 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook had surgery on his torn right meniscus on Saturday and will miss the rest of the playoffs.
Ken Berger on Twitter
Impact"Russell's health and well being are obviously our number one priority," GM Sam Presti said. The surgery is to repair the meniscus and not remove it, which results in a longer recovery. It's a smart move and the Thunder made it clear they're in it for the long haul when they traded away James Harden back in October 2012. Westbrook should be ready to go for the start of the 2013 season and Saturday's game will be the first DNP of his productive career. We'd still consider him to be a great pick in the first half of the first round of standard fantasy drafts. Reggie Jackson is having a small breakout this season and he'll be charged with handling the point guard duties. Kevin Durant is going to have to shoot the ball more and the Thunder still have a chance to represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals.
Russell Westbrook to undergo surgery Saturday | 04/27/2013 1:05 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook will undergo surgery on his torn meniscus Saturday.
Darnell Mayberry on Twitter
ImpactThe surgery was expected to happen sometime this weekend after Westbrook suffered the injury Wednesday night. The question now is how much work the doctors will have to do on Westbrook's knee. Yahoo! Sports reported Friday that there's a chance the meniscus is only slightly torn, which would mean Westbrook could possibly return in two to three weeks. However, if it's more of a full tear doctors will have to stitch the meniscus back together and Westbrook would likely be done for the rest of this season. We should know the diagnosis at some point Saturday.
Report: 2 percent of Westbrook's knee torn | 04/26/2013 3:34 PM
NewsA source tells Yahoo Sports that "perhaps" only 2 percent of Russell Westbrook's meniscus is torn.
No timetable on Westbrook until after surgery | 04/26/2013 2:30 PM
NewsThe Thunder will not have a timetable on Russell Westbrook until he undergoes knee surgery.
ImpactWestbrook had never missed a game in his five-year NBA career. Now he's listed as "out indefinitely" and going to miss at least some of the biggest games of his life. His lateral meniscus tear is slightly worse than a medial meniscus tear and recovery timetables range anywhere from 2-8 weeks. Doctors won't know just how bad Westbrook's tear is until they go into his knee. Talented second-year point guard Reggie Jackson is a good bet for 30-plus minutes for the foreseeable future, and 38-year-old fossil Derek Fisher will also have to step up.

Westbrook, Durant each score 29 in Game 2 win | 04/24/2013 10:12 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook and Kevin Durant each scored 29 points in Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Rockets.
ImpactWestbrook had to deal with little known Patrick Beverley all night, as Beverley had a big game got into Westbrook's head, pushing the Thunder to the brink in the 105-102 win. Westbrook hit just 10-of-26 shots and 1-of-7 3-pointers, while Durant hit 10-of-25 shots, two 3-pointers and committed just one turnover on the night. Durant had 15 in the first quarter, but went scoreless in the fourth quarter until the game's final two minutes, when Thabo Sefolosha hit a 3-pointer, and Serge Ibaka knocked down an 18-footer to help secure the win for OKC.
Westbrook nearly triple-doubles in easy win | 04/22/2013 12:13 AM
NewsRussell Westbrook had 19 points, eight rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 7-of-15 shooting as the Thunder crushed the Rockets 120-91 in Game 1 on Sunday.
ImpactWestbrook was great tonight, and looked like the fastest player in the league, while Kevin Durant came through with 24 points and a full stat line in the easy win. The Thunder should have no problem disposing of the Rockets in Round 1.
Russell Westbrook to get very limited minutes | 04/17/2013 7:13 PM
NewsCoach Scott Brooks confirmed Russell Westbrook will only play seven to eight minutes Wednesday night.
Darnell Mayberry on Twitter
ImpactBrooks said Tuesday this was an option for Westbrook so it's not surprising at all. Kevin Durant isn't even playing in Wednesday's regular-season finale, ceding the scoring title to Carmelo Anthony while resting for the postseason. Reggie Jackson should get a ton of run tonight and is definitely worth a look as a spot-start option.
Russell Westbrook to play sparingly in finale | 04/16/2013 3:42 PM
NewsCoach Scott Brooks said Russell Westbook may only play 6-10 minutes in Wednesday's regular-season finale.
Darnell Mayberry on Twitter
ImpactWe'd expect the same kind of workload -- or less -- for Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka and Kevin Martin. The Thunder have the West's No. 1 seed locked up and can not catch the Heat for home-court advantage in a potential Finals rematch. Westbrook's consecutive games played streak will continue to a remarkable 394 outings, but talented backup Reggie Jackson is a far better fantasy option.
Russell Westbrook expected to play Wednesday | 04/16/2013 8:11 AM
NewsDespite Scott Brooks suggesting he'd rest his starters on Wednesday, beat writer Darnell Mayberry believes Russell Westbrook will play.
ImpactWestbrook has never missed a game in his NBA career and has never shown any indication that he'd welcome sitting out voluntarily, so Brooks may have to fight Westbrook to limit him in the last game of the regular season. OKC has the top seed locked up in the Western Conference, so even if he plays, don't expect it to be for very long, likely 20-25 minutes. The same can be said of guys like Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka if they suit up.
Westbrook ejected, Thunder clinch top seed | 04/16/2013 12:27 AM
NewsRussell Westbrook scored 21 points with five rebounds, eight assists and three steals before being ejected for his second technical foul, but the Thunder still beat the Kings by the score of 104-95 on Monday.
ImpactThe Thunder also clinched the top seed in the West and Scott Brooks said his starters wouldn't play much in the finale. Give guys like Reggie Jackson, Daniel Orton, and Ronnie Brewer a look if you're hunting scrubs for the silly season.
Russell Westbrook scores 18 points in win | 04/12/2013 1:23 AM
NewsRussell Westbrook was his usual wild self in Thursday's win over the Warriors, scoring 18 points with three boards, nine assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and six turnovers in 30 minutes.
ImpactHe had five turnovers in the first half and Russell isn't going to change his style in the near future. He ranks second in the league in total fastbreak points and ninth in points in the paint, which is amazing considering no other point guard ranks in the top 21. Whether you like him or not, he's one of the best players in the league.
Russell Westbrook scores 25 points vs. Utah | 04/10/2013 1:02 AM
NewsRussell Westbrook shot 8-of-21 from the field for a game-high 25 points with five boards, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers against the Jazz on Tuesday.
ImpactHe put Mo Williams on skates for most of the game and the Jazz simply had no answer for him. Westbrook leads all point guards in points and rebounds while his 1.8 steals and 1.2 triples give him elite value. He'll be off the board in the early part of the first round next year.
Russell Westbrook scores 37 points vs. NYK | 04/07/2013 4:22 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook shot 15-of-27 from the field for a game-high 37 points in a 125-120 loss to the Knicks on Sunday, adding 11 boards, eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.
ImpactHe gets a lot of negative press for not showing up in big games, but with the league's top two scorers on the court with him, he turned in the biggest and best line. Westbrook has been cruising all season and he'll have top-five value in fantasy leagues next year.
Russell Westbrook scores 27 points | 04/05/2013 12:35 AM
NewsRussell Westbrook scored a game-high 27 points in a win over the Spurs on Thursday to go with seven boards, seven assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.
ImpactIt was a typical game for Westbrook with sub-par shooting to go with a ton of stats and three turnovers. He still hasn't missed a game in his NBA career and he looks like he'll be off the board in the first round of eight-category leagues for years to come.
Russell Westbrook logs triple-double vs. MIL | 03/30/2013 11:06 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook had his first triple-double of the season with 23 points, 13 boards and 10 assists to go with three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in a win over the Wolves on Saturday.
ImpactIt was his first triple-double since January 2011 and the sixth of his career. It wasn't all good for Westbrook, shooting 6-of-18 from the field and 10-of-14 from the line while turning the ball over. The Thunder had a strong finish and earned a much-needed win.
Russell Westbrook scores 35 points vs. Mavs | 03/17/2013 10:25 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook led the Thunder on Sunday with 35 points, six rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and five turnovers -- he made 13-of-23 field goals and was 9-of-9 at the charity stripe.
ImpactWestbrook now has 14 games with at least 30 points this season, and he's likely to have a few more before the season ends. The Thunder are just one game behind the Spurs for the best record in the NBA, and Scott Brooks hasn't rested his players down the stretch in previous seasons, so Westbrook's rest-of-season value is shaping up very nicely.
Russell Westbrook scores 23 points Friday | 03/15/2013 11:54 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook didn't turn the ball over in Friday's 117-104 win over the Magic, scoring 23 points with six boards, six assists and three 3-pointers.
ImpactHe's fourth in the league with 3.5 turnovers per game this year and it was just the third game with no turnovers. Westbrook can do it all and leads all point guards in rebounds. His durability will make him a first-round pick in fantasy leagues for years to come.
Westbrook scores 15 points vs. Celtics | 03/10/2013 4:19 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook shot 5-of-11 from the field for 15 points with one board, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in a win over the Celtics.
ImpactIt was his second consecutive game shooting 5-of-11 from the field and he's cooled off since his red-hot streak coming out of the All-Star break. Westbrook shot below 11 attempts in just one game prior to this recent cold streak, but there's no reason to worry about him getting it turned around.

NewsRussell Westbrook scored 11 points with three boards, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer on 5-of-11 shooting in 25 minutes against the Bobcats on Friday.
ImpactHe suffered an a minor ankle sprain on Thursday and had to be taped up, but this quiet line is due to garbage time and not anything injury related. Westbrook shot 50 percent from the field for 30.3 points per game in his eight previous games since the All-Star break and is one of the most exciting players in the league.

Russell Westbrook cools off in win over NYK | 03/07/2013 10:58 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook shot 8-of-22 from the field for 21 points with six boards, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.
ImpactHe did suffer a minor ankle tweak in the first quarter and we're not really concerned about him missing time. Westbrook did have a strong first half with 19 points and totally lost his shot in the second half, but it didn't look to be related to the ankle. He also played sticky defense on J.R. Smith on the last play of the game to give OKC the road win. Westbrook is good to go against the Bobcats on Friday.
Russell Westbrook returned from ankle issue | 03/07/2013 8:50 PM
NewsRussell Westbrook turned his left ankle in the first quarter of Thursday's game against the Knicks and he he returned to the game with eight minutes left in the second quarter.
ImpactHe landed on Iman Shumpert's foot and his ankle didn't turn too much. Westbrook played through it for a few minutes and he didn't seem to be too bothered by it. He's Russell Westbrook, so he's fine.
Russell Westbrook's 37 lead OKC over Lakers | 03/06/2013 1:40 AM
NewsRussell Westbrook was nearly flawless on Tuesday, hitting 15-of-29 shots for 37 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and just one turnover in an easy win over the Lakers.
ImpactHe didn't hit a 3-pointer and no, the 37 points were not a season high, as he had 38 points just two games prior, on March 1 against the Nuggets. He's now topped the 30-point plateau 13 times this season and the two turnovers the Thunder committed tonight tied an all-time NBA record, and Westbrook is the seventh best fantasy player this season, according to Basketballmonster.com. While arguments may have been able to be made in the past as to why Westbrook wasn't a great NBA point guard, they're all but dead now.

OKC absolutely went off in the last 4:37 of the game, making all seven free throws and all six field goals to seal the road win. While Westbrook is widely criticized, he's clearly one of the best players in the NBA.

NewsRussell Westbrook was benched for part of the third quarter of Thursday's win against the Grizzlies, finishing with 21 points, nine boards, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.
ImpactHe was reportedly upset about Thabo Sefolosha getting called for a violation and was throwing a bit of a tantrum to assistant coach Maurice Cheeks. Westbrook briefly went to the locker room and may have vented his frustration, but he came back out and started the fourth quarter. This story will likely be overblown on a national level, but the All-Star is a fantasy monster this year.
