Westbrook registered 24 points (7-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 10 assists and eight rebounds in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 129-112 loss to the 76ers. The 32-year-old came up two rebounds short of posting his third straight triple-double in Wednesday's series-clinching loss. Westbrook bounced back after totaling just 26 points over his first two games in the series, averaging 23.0 points, 13.7 rebounds and 11.3 assists over his last three games of the playoffs. The 12-year veteran goes into the offseason with two years remaining on his original five-year, $206 million contract.
Westbrook (ankle) is listed as available for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Sixers. The Wizards initially listed Westbrook as "questionable" but quickly issued an update to clarify that the guard will, in fact, be available. Westbrook has been battling an ankle issue since Game 2, but it didn't stop him from putting up triple-doubles in each of the last two contests. He's still struggling to score the ball efficiently for the series, but Westbrook offset a horrific 3-of-19 shooting night in Game 4 by going 13-of-16 at the free throw line on his way to 19 points, 21 rebounds, 14 assists and two steals in 42 minutes.
Westbrook (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's Game 5 against the 76ers. Westbrook played through the issue during Games 3 and 4, and he averaged 22.5 points, 16.5 rebounds, 12.0 assists and 1.0 steals but shot just 32.4 percent from the field. It would be surprising if he sat out with the Wizards down 3-1 in the series.
Westbrook mustered 19 points (3-19 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 13-16 FT), 21 rebounds, 14 assists and two steals across 42 minutes in Monday's Game 4 win over the 76ers. Westbrook struggled massively from the floor, but he took advantage of his elite ability to get to the charity stripe to finish with his second-best scoring output of the series. This was also his second straight triple-double, and the star point guard is averaging 17.8 points, 12.3 assists and 11.0 rebounds per game during the current series.
Westbrook (ankle) will play in Game 4 against the 76ers on Monday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. Westbrook is officially available for Game 4 as expected despite an ankle sprain. The 32-year-old guard put up a triple-double in the blowout Game 3 loss, so he should still be productive despite the injury.
