Westbrook produced 27 points (11-17 FG, 5-6 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and four steals in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 117-111 win over the Timberwolves.
Westbrook has scored at least 20 points in every single game since Dec. 7, so he's virtually a lock to produce decent numbers every time he steps on the hardwood. One thing to note is that he's been scoring with a lot more accuracy of late, however, as the star point guard has made 53.4 percent of his field goals in his last six games. That kind of efficiency produces a huge boost if he's scoring at a high volume.
Westbrook put up 24 points (9-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes Sunday in the Rockets' 126-106 loss to the Magic.
Westbrook's scoring and assist totals edged out James Harden (23 and seven) for the team lead, but the outing was still somewhat disappointing for the 31-year-old, who was rested for the front end of the back-to-back set Saturday. The Rockets' commitment to small-ball lineups has generally been yielding positive results while simultaneously bringing Westbrook's fantasy value to greater heights, but the team has hit a bit of a rough spell of late. The Rockets have now lost four consecutive games, with two of the losses coming by double figures and the other two coming against non-playoff teams in the Knicks and Hornets.
Westbrook won't play the front end of the back-to-back set Saturday against the Hornets but will suit up Sunday versus the Magic, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Westbrook hasn't played in both parts of back-to-back sets all season, and this time around he won't play in the first game. Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore figure to see increased run Saturday with Eric Gordon (knee) also sidelined.
Westbrook notched 29 points (11-27 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-11 FT), 15 rebounds, five assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Thursday's 120-105 loss to the Clippers.
One of the best rebounding guards in the league, Westbrook has notched double-digit boards in 17 games this season and routinely crashes the glass with efficiency for a player of his position. He averages 8.1 rebounds per game, but that's down from what he did in each of the past three seasons, where he averaged over 10 boards per game.
Westbrook registered 24 points (9-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one block in 37 minutes during Monday's 125-123 loss at New York.
Westbrook didn't look sharp in this game, but he still extended his run of games scoring 20 or more points to 31 contests. The lack of efficiency stands out, but the star point guard has connected on 53.4 percent of his shots during his last 10 games. Based on his current form, this might have been nothing more than a bump in the road for one of the league's most dominant scorers.
Westbrook accumulated 41 points (16-27 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-12 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and three steals during Saturday's 111-110 overtime victory over the Celtics.
With star teammate James Harden struggling with his shot throughout the night, Westbrook took control of the team's primary scoring duties. The 2017 MVP was able to establish his control by continually and successfully shooting in the paint, going 11-of-16 in that area of the court. Westbrook has now reached at least 30 points in six of his last seven outings, converting at a remarkable 57.2 percent rate from the field over that span.
Westbrook ended with 33 points (15-24 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists and four steals in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 140-112 victory over the Grizzlies.
Westbrook returned after missing the previous game with a thumb injury, toying with the undermanned Grizzlies lineup. He got to the basket at will and was clearly a class above the Memphis backcourt. Westbrook has made minor adjustments to his game this season and the benefits are there for all to see. A reduction in three-point attempts is perhaps the most obvious change, something that many had been calling for over the past few seasons. The Rockets are going to be pushing for a high playoff seeding and as long as he is on the court (he often sits one game in back-to-back situations), Westbrook should be a top-20 player.
Westbrook (sore thumb) will return to action Wednesday against Memphis, Rockets reporter Cayleigh Griffin reports.
Westbrook was a surprising late scratch from Monday's win over the Knicks, but he'll miss just one game and will return to his usual spot in the backcourt alongside James Harden on Wednesday. In his first two games after the All-Star break, Westbrook averaged 27.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 7.0 assists in 34.5 minutes.
Westbrook will not play in Monday's game against the Knicks due to a sore thumb, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Westbrook was originally not listed with the Rockets' starters, but he was reportedly going to be active. However, the team has officially opted to err on the side of caution and keep him sidelined. Eric Gordon will start alongside James Harden in the backcourt. Westbrook's next chance to suit up will come Wednesday against the Grizzlies.
Westbrook isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Knicks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Westbrook is listed as active for the contest, but he won't draw the start in this one. This may be because a few of the Rockets traveled to LA earlier in the day for a Kobe Bryant memorial service at the Staples Center, causing the group to arrive at the arena later than usual.
Westbrook poured in 34 points (14-26 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go with six rebounds, four assists and one steal across 39 minutes Saturday in the Rockets' 120-110 win over the Jazz.
As per usual, the Rockets leaned heavily on Westbrook and James Harden for most of their offense, with the duo providing 60 percent of Houston's scoring while no other players exceeded 12 points. Westbrook's numbers were lagging in the supporting categories more than usual, but he should have more of an opportunity to pick up the slack on the boards with Clint Capela no longer in the picture for Houston.
Westbrook provided 21 points (10-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 10 assists, five rebounds and a steal across 30 minutes in Thursday's 135-105 win over the Warriors.
Westbrook's day was coming to a close by the time he got his second technical foul, which sent him packing after posting a respectable line. In his last season with the Thunder, Westbrook's temper often got the best of him, especially as the season came to a close. While he seems content with his role in Houston, Mike D'Antoni will need to manage Westbrook with care down the stretch to keep the All-Star out of trouble. It's also worth noting that Westbrook is three technical fouls away from receiving the league's automatic one-game suspension once a player receives 16 of them.
Westbrook accumulated 36 points (13-23 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 10-13 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals during Tuesday's 116-105 victory over the Celtics.
Westbrook continues to play at a high level, scoring at least 36 points in three straight games. Tuesday's effort also marked his 14th game of the season with at least 55 fantasy points (11 of those occurred at home). Plus, it was the 66th time in Westbrook's career that he's posted a 30-point double-double while hitting at least 50 percent of his field-goal attempts, with 45 of those games resulting in wins.
Westbrook racked up 39 points (18-33 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block across 38 minutes Sunday in the Rockets' 114-113 loss to the Jazz.
After pouring in 41 points in Thursday's loss to the Lakers, Westbrook rested in Friday's loss in Phoenix, but the game off didn't derail his hot streak. Rudy Gobert spent the majority of the game shadowing Westbrook, who proceeded to torch him for 17 points in the first quarter alone. The Rockets' new ultra-small lineup has thus far seemingly provided a boost to Westbrook's production.
Westbrook produced 41 points (17-28 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and a steal across 37 minutes in Thursday's 121-111 win over the Lakers.
Westbrook hit a milestone Thursday by scoring his 20,000th point and took over the game while James Harden struggled. While the Lakers had a relatively easy time getting inside due to Houston's new small-ball scheme, the undersized lineup, led by Westbrook, proved to be too fast for the Lakers. The new setup seems to fill Westbrook's skill-set well, but the team will have to wait for a game to continue that exploration, as the All-Star point guard will sit out the tail end of the back-to-back Friday.
Coach Mike D'Antoni said Westbrook (thumb) will play Thursday against the Lakers and rest Friday against the Suns, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Westbrook has been cleared to return after missing Tuesday's game against the Hornets with a thumb injury, though -- as has been the case all season -- the Rockets will hold him out for the second half of the team's back-to-back set Friday in Phoenix. Over his past three games, Westbrook is averaging 31.0 points, 7.3 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 2.0 steals in 39.3 minutes.
Westbrook (thumb) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Lakers, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
It sounds like Westbrook could return Thursday in Los Angeles after missing Tuesday's win over the Hornets with a thumb injury. With the Rockets playing a back-to-back set Thursday and Friday, Westbrook could be withheld from one of the games as a precaution. Look for his status to clear up closer to tip-off.
Westbrook (thumb) has officially been ruled out for Tuesday's tilt against the Hornets, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Westbrook suffered the injury during Sunday's victory over the Pelicans. He was subsequently deemed doubtful for Tuesday's contest, so it is not surprising that he has been ruled out. Ben McLemore will get the start in his absence, while Austin Rivers and Eric Gordon could also see some extra usage. The All-Star point guard's next chance to suit up will come Thursday versus the Lakers.
Westbrook is considered doubtful for Tuesday's game against Charlotte due to a left thumb injury, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Although details surrounding the issue remains murky, Westbrook appears to have suffered the thumb injury during Sunday's win over New Orleans. An absence for Westbrook would put fantasy managers in quite the conundrum, as the Rockets play only three games this week, with the latter two coming as part of a Thursday/Friday back-to-back set. Westbrook has sat out at least one half of every back-to-back set this season, so if the thumb injury keeps him sidelined Tuesday, he would likely play one game at most this week. The star guard averaged 32.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 8.2 assists across 37.7 minutes per game in January but fell back to earth a bit in Saturday's win over the Pelicans, finishing with 22 points, seven assists and six rebounds while shooting 9-of-24 from the field.
Westbrook totaled 32 points (13-28 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds, nine assists and three steals in 40 minutes during Friday's 128-121 win over Dallas.
Westbrook came just one assist shy of a double-double. He also scored at least 30 in his fourth-straight game and ninth out of his last 10. He'll look to stay hot when the Rockets host the Pelicans on Sunday.
