News: Westbrook will be without any restrictions in the playoffs, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Coach Scott Brooks said Westbrook will be allowed to play without any sort of minutes restriction in the playoffs, so the guard will likely play heavy minutes, aside from any blowouts. Westbrook's value should now be as high as it's been all season and looks to stay that way barring another injury.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (rest) returned from a one-game absence Wednesday to play 34 minutes. He finished with 22 points, six rebounds, eight assists and six steals.
Impact: Westbrook was on regular rest towards the end of the season so he would be healthy for the playoffs. The odds of him resting during the postseason are slim to none, so he should be deployed as usual when the Thunder face the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | STATS
News: The NBA's scoring champion closed out his season in style, scoring 42 points to lead Oklahoma City to a 112-111 victory over Detroit.
Impact: Durant finished the year averaging 31.9 points - the highest single-season average of his career - en route to his fourth scoring title.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Durant scored 42 points (14-30 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 13-15 FT) to go with six assists in 45 minutes against Detroit on Wednesday.
Impact: Durant carried his team to victory and capped off a probable MVP season with an exclamation point. A scoring machine, Durant's 42 points included just one made three-pointer. However, like much of this season, Durant got his teammates involved Wednesday, an improved element of his game that furthered his fantasy superstardom this term.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | STATS
News: Jackson has a stiff neck.
Impact: His status going forward is uncertain.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ibaka scored 22 points (7-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 8-10 FT) to go along with 16 rebounds, five assists and a block in 40 minutes Monday at New Orleans.
Impact: The big man had another big night, posting a hefty double-double and dishing a career-high five assists. Ibaka was a lone bright spot for the Thunder, who still must win Wednesday to ensure they clinch the two seed in the West. That means Ibaka will more than likely get his usual workload in the final game of the season.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson (neck) scored just four points (1-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with three assists and two rebounds in 26 minutes Monday in New Orleans.
Impact: With Russell Westbrook once again resting, Jackson got the nod just a day after a neck injury knocked him out of the Thunder's last game. Unfortunately for owners who decided to start the point guard, Jackson didn't look very good. With one game remaining on Oklahoma City's schedule, it should be interesting to see whether Westbrook will get one final tuneup before the playoffs.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | STATS
News: Collison and Pelicans guard Austin Rivers were ejected following a brief scuffle in the second quarter of Monday night's game between Oklahoma City and New Orleans.
Impact: Rivers appeared perturbed about the way he was held up during a prolonged screen set by Collison while on Oklahoma City's offensive end. Rivers shoved his way out of the screen and soon after started jawing with Collison as the two followed the play down court to the Pelicans' offensive end. They bumped again in the paint, igniting a brief shoving match with 7:56 remaining in the first half.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | STATS
News: Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks says he's sitting Westbrook out of Monday night's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Impact: Brooks says the decision is meant to provide his star point guard with extra rest after the playoff-bound Thunder played in Indianapolis on Sunday. Reggie Jackson is slated to start in Westbrook's place.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson (neck) will play Monday at New Orleans, with Russell Westbrook (rest) out of the lineup, the The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jackson exited Sunday's game with a neck injury but will nonetheless be a solid fantasy option Monday with Westbrook on the bench.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook flirted with a triple-double Sunday, but ultimately finished with 21 points (7-23 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 33 minutes.
Impact: Westbrook struggled shooting the ball during Sunday's game, but he was able to contribute in other areas to help out his owners. While he was a good option Sunday, he won't play in Monday's game against the Pelicans in order to rest, so arrangements should be made to insert someone else if possible. Reggie Jackson suffered an apparent neck injury which would leave some extra minutes to Derek Fisher and Jeremy Lamb if Jackson will also sit out.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson left during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game after colliding with Pacers center Ian Mahinmi, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jackson walked back to the Thunder's locker room while holding his neck. The severity of the ailment is unclear at this point, but with fellow point guard Russell Westbrook (knee) slated to rest Monday, Derek Fisher could see even more minutes if Jackson misses any time. Expect more definitive news regarding Jackson's condition to surface shortly.
Sun. Apr 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Westbrook nearly had a triple-double on Sunday versus Indiana as Oklahoma City failed to lock up the second seed in the West.
Impact: Westbrook scored 21 points, grabbed nine rebounds and handed out seven assists. He made 7 of 23 shots and had four turnovers.
Sun. Apr 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Durant scored 38 points on Sunday versus Indiana as Oklahoma City failed to lock up the second seed in the West.
Impact: Durant is back in action Monday in New Orleans.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson passed all medical testing after suffering a neck injury during Sunday's game, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jackson exited Sunday's contest during the fourth quarter, when a screen from Pacers center Ian Mahinmi caused him to hit the deck. While Jackson did not return to the game, he did have precautionary x-rays taken on his neck and apparently passed all testing. Nonetheless, his playing status for Monday in New Orleans is uncertain. Jackson will likely be a game-time decision, but given teammate Russell Westbrook's injury history, it won't be surprising if the Thunder exercise caution with Jackson, especially with the playoffs looming. It's already known that Westbrook will sit out Monday's game, so if Jackson is rested as well, veteran Derek Fisher would figure to start at point guard.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Durant was up to his usual antics during his 42 minutes against the Pacers on Sunday. He finished with 38 points (13-27 FG, 2-11 3Pt, 10-10 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal.
Impact: The Thunder lost to the Pacers in a hard fought game, and Durant's poor shooting from beyond the arc certainly could have been the difference. That being said, both his team and his owners still benefited in other areas during this outing. There are two games left on the schedule for the Thunder and Durant may be a candidate to rest on the bench in order to prepare for the playoffs.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jones stayed planted on the bench during the Thunder's Sunday game against the Pacers.
Impact: Jones had brief stint where he got consistent minutes as a starter, but now that Thabo Sefolosha (calf) is healthy, the second-year player will likely spend the majority of his time on the bench. However, his team may choose to rest some starters before the playoffs, in which case he may see some above-average playing time.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fisher played 15 minutes off the bench Sunday and managed to record one assist and one steal during his time on the court.
Impact: Fisher doesn't tend to see enough time on the court to produce significant box scores. However, Monday's game against the Pelicans may result in some added minutes for the aging veteran. Russell Westbrook (knee) will sit out to rest and Reggie Jackson had to leave Sunday's matchup with an apparent neck injury. If Jackson sits out, then Fisher and Jeremy Lamb will likely enjoy more run.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook will play Sunday versus the Pacers, but will sit out Monday's contest against the Pelicans, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Westbrook has routinely sat out at least one game of Oklahoma City's recent back-to-back sets, so Monday's absence will be nothing new since the Thunder play Sunday as well. A fantasy stud when he's on the court, Westbrook has averaged over 23 points, six assists, and five rebounds during his past 10 outings. Production like that makes him a must-start Sunday versus a struggling Indiana squad.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ibaka scored 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-4 FT), grabbed 10 rebounds, and blocked eight shots in 30 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday night.
Impact: Ibaka may have blocked fewer shots this season than in 2012-13, but he remains one of the game's most elite shot blockers. Owners should continue to use him as much as possible through the end of the season.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson played 24 minutes off the bench against the Pelicans on Friday night, scoring 11 points (3-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), distributing eight assists, and grabbing four rebounds.
Impact: Even in limited minutes, Jackson has managed to remain effective from the fantasy perspective. His production within each category may not be as consistent as owners might like, but he can reliably provide value nearly every night.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (knee) returned from a one-game absence Wednesday to record 30 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals in 33 minutes.
Impact: Westbrook will likely miss either Sunday's or Monday's game, but will likely be good to go for Friday's contest against the Pelicans. The Thunder have been sitting their point guard for one of their back-to-back games in the hope that he'll be fresh for the playoffs. When available, he should be inserted into every lineup across all formats.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | STATS
News: Westbrook scored 30 points in his return to the lineup and the Oklahoma City Thunder held off the Los Angeles Clippers 107-101 Wednesday night in a possible playoff preview.
Impact: Westbrook had sat out two of the previous three games and has missed 34 games this season with a variety of injuries.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (knee) is back in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Clippers, Clippers.comreports.
Impact: Westbrook returns after sitting out Tuesday's game as part of the team's plan to hold him out of one game of back-to-back sets. Over his last two games, Westbrook is averaging 30.0 points and 7.0 assists while shooting a combined 22-of-46 from the field.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Butler made all six of his 3-point attempts to finish with 23 points, and the Oklahoma City Thunder started the fourth quarter on a 16-0 run to pull away for a 107-92 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.
Impact: The performance tied for Butler's highest scoring game since he joined Oklahoma City on March 4.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Kevin Durant scored 23 points but was never needed in the final quarter, as Oklahoma City beat Sacramento on Tuesday 107-92.
Impact: The performance snapped Durant's streak of scoring at least 25 points in 41 consecutive games.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Butler came off the bench and poured in 23 points (8-10 FG, 6-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go with five rebounds, two assists and a steal in 26 minutes against the Kings on Tuesday.
Impact: Butler has been on fire from three-point late as of late. Over his past five games, he's averaging 12.0 points, 3.2 three-pointers and 1.2 steals in 28.6 minutes off the bench.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sefolosha returned from a 16-game absence and played 15 minutes against the Kings. He scored only two points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and had three rebounds and an assist.
Impact: Sefolosha immediately returned to the starting lineup, and his return should remove Andre Roberson from the starting lineup.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins scored three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 FT) to go with three rebounds and an assist in 14 minutes Tuesday against the Kings.
Impact: Perkins was a game-time decision Tuesday and has been dealing with a groin injury for some time. He'll play again Wednesday as the Thunder look to get Perkins consistent minutes to prepare him for the playoffs.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Durant scored 23 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go with four rebounds and four assists in 31 minutes Tuesday in an easy win over the Kings.
Impact: It was a quiet night for Durant's standards, as his 25-point streak ended at 41 games. He's still the best player in fantasy basketball and owners should deploy him as usual.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Westbrook is sitting out against the Sacramento Kings to rest his surgically repaired right knee.
Impact: Thunder coach Scott Brooks said before Tuesday's night game that Westbrook would not play. The guard is expected to start Wednesday night at the Los Angeles Clippers. Since returning on Feb. 20 following knee surgery, Westbrook has rested for one game during back-to-back sets.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Roberson will return to a bench role Tuesday against the Kings, Cowbell Kingdom reports.
Impact: With the return of Thabo Sefolosha (calf), Roberson is likely going to remain on the bench for the rest of the season. Still, Sefolosha will be on a minutes limit, meaning Roberson could still see game action. Regardless, he isn't contributing much in most fantasy leagues, and can be ignored in all formats in light of this news.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sefolosha (calf) will return to the starting lineup Tuesday against the Kings and will be limited in minutes, the Sacramento Bee reports.
Impact: Sefolosha has missed 16 games with a calf injury, and it appears he'll finally get a chance to return to the court. Expect Andre Roberson and Jeremy Lamb to see reduced minutes once he's back to 100 percent.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (knee) is confirmed to sit Tuesday against the Kings, the Sacramento Bee reports.
Impact: This shouldn't come as a surprise to owners, as Westbrook was slated to miss one out of two games of back-to-back series. In light of this news, expect him to play Wednesday against the Clippers.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins (groin) will play in both games of the Thunder's back-to-back set Tuesday and Wednesday, but he'll likely still have his minutes limited to somewhere between 12-15 minutes per game, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Perkins was held out of one game of a back-to-back set for the Thunder last week when he made his return to action, and it was assumed he'd continue to have such limitations for the remainder of the regular season. However, the Thunder seem to have changed course and will look to get Perkins consistent action in the remaining six games on their schedule.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (knee) sat out the physical portion of Tuesday's shootaround, icing his knee, and he appears unlikely to play Tuesday, which would make him probable Wednesday, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Westbrook is being held out of one game of every back-to-back set, so he'll also probably sit out one of the Thunder's games this weekend when they have another back-to-back on Sunday and Monday.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sefolosha will test out his calf before Tuesday's game and could possibly return to action, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Sefolosha has missed 16 games since going down on February 28 with a calf injury. His return would probably remove Andre Roberson from the rotation and might also push Jeremy Lamb from the rotation as well.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins (groin) may sit out Tuesday's game against the Kings to rest, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Perkins has just recently returned from a groin injury, and the Thunder are being cautious as the playoffs approach. Look for Steven Adams to start in his place if he sits.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (knee) may sit out Tuesday's game against the Kings to rest, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: This shouldn't come as a surprise, as Westbrook has been given nights off to rest his knee for the playoffs. If Westbrook sits, expect Reggie Jackson to start in his place.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jerrett has been signed by the Thunder for the remainder of the season, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jerrett, who was the 40th overall pick in last year's draft, has averaged 15.1 points and 6.1 rebounds in 29.3 minutes this season in the D-League. He'll be with Oklahoma City through the postseason but isn't expected to see much court time.
Sun. Apr 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Kevin Durant scored 38 points on Sunday versus Phoenix, surpassing Michael Jordan with his 41st consecutive game of 25 or more.
Impact: Durant has the third-longest streak in NBA history with 25 or more points in a game and longest since Oscar Robertson did it for 46 in a row in the 1963-64 season.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Durant totaled a game-high 38 points (13-28 FG, 4-15 3Pt, 8-10 FT) Sunday against the Suns for his 41st consecutive game with at least 25 points, passing Michael Jordan for the most in 50 years.
Impact: Durant is third on the all-time list. With six games to play, he could catch Oscar Robertson, who has 46 straight, for second. Wilt Chamberlain did it in all 80 regular-season games in the 1961-62 season. Durant added 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 43 minutes.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson moved back to a bench role for Sunday's game after making a spot start in place of Russell Westbrook (knee) on Friday.
Impact: Jackson played 33 minutes off the bench and put up 11 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal, and a three-pointer. He's been productive lately whether he's starting or not, and with four games this week, he's a good play in weekly lineups.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sefolosha (calf) missed his 16th straight game Sunday but is close to a return, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Sefolosha has been out since February 28 with a calf injury. The Thunder's next game is Tuesday, and it's thought that Sefolosha could return for that game.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Adams was a coach's decision-did not play Sunday, missing his first game of the season.
Impact: Adams had played in every single game this season until Sunday. After posting a 17-point, 10-rebound double-double with three blocks in just the fifth game of the season, Adams became one of the most closely watched rookies in fantasy. Funny enough, that breakout game was Adams' best game of the year and his only double-double. Even when starting at center, Adams was never given big minutes, and that hampered his usefulness in fantasy. Depending on the fate of Kendrick Perkins this offseason, Adams could be a fun big man to target at the end of drafts next season.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (knee maintenance) returned to action Sunday, starting at point guard and putting up 33 points, four rebounds, eight assists, two blocks, and two three-pointers in 33 minutes.
Impact: Jeez oh Pizza the Hut. Westbrook is on a minutes limit that may last into the playoffs, and they won't play him in both games of a back-to-back set, but Westbrook continues to play at an All-Star level whenever he's in the lineup. Though the Thunder have four games this week, it's possible Westbrook will only play in two of those games, depending on how the Thunder decide to rest him for their back-to-backs. We're still using Westbrook in most weekly lineups, but it comes with a certain risk. The Thunder's first back-to-back this week is Tuesday and Wednesday, so daily league players will want to watch for which game Westbrook is going to sit out when setting their lineups.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins (groin) returned to action Sunday, starting at center and putting up four points and three rebounds in 13 minutes.
Impact: Perkins was held out of Friday's game because it was the second game of a back-to-back set for the Thunder. The have two more back-to-backs this season, so Perkins is only likely to play in three of the Thunder's final five games. He's only of use in the absolute deepest of leagues.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins (groin) will start Sunday's tilt against the Suns but will have his minutes limited, Arizona Sports reports.
Impact: Perkins had to rest Friday due to the fact the team was playing the second game of a back-to-back set, but was able to log 12 minutes in Thursday's game. The Thunder will continue to be cautious with him for the rest of the season to make sure he's healthy for the playoffs.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (knee) will start Sunday's contest against the Suns, Arizona Sports reports.
Impact: Westbrook was expected to start Sunday and only sat out Friday as a precaution. Westbrook will continue to start going forward, but may not play in back-to-back sets just yet.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Collison (head) managed to play and log 15 minutes of action Friday against the Rockets. He posted five points and four rebounds.
Impact: Collison took an elbow to the head in Thursday's game against the Spurs, but it appears it won't affect his status on the court. Still, he's not contributing enough to be worth a roster spot in any fantasy league at this point.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson started for the resting Russell Westbrook (knee) Friday against the Rockets, posting 17 points (7-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 36 minutes.
Impact: Jackson has been a solid fantasy option throughout the season, whether or not he's starting. Although Westbrook is slated to play most of the games ahead, Jackson still contributes worthy production off the bench and is a valid option in standard leagues.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Durant posted 28 points (7-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 11-12 FT), 12 rebounds, and six assists in 44 minutes Friday against the Rockets.
Impact: Durant has now tied Michael Jordan's longest streak of scoring at least 25 points, now at 40 consecutive games. The fantasy beast has been averaging 31.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, six assists, and three three-pointers made over the last five games. Continue to deploy Durant in all formats.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ibaka exploded for a monster game Friday against the Rockets, posting 27 points (11-17 FG, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, six blocks, and two three-pointers made in 36 minutes.
Impact: Ibaka hasn't torn up the fantasy scope for quite a while with a stat line like Friday's, but owners can definitely take joy in the outburst. Unlikely to have many more of these performances, he is regardless averaging a steady 15 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks on the season.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Adams will start Friday, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Adams had recently moved back to a bench role to make way for Kendrick Perkins' return to the court, but Perkins will sit out again Friday and Adams will resume the role of starting center against the Rockets Friday.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson will start Friday, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jackson has been struggling with a back injury the past week, but was able to play through it Thursday night and will start in place of Russell Westbrook Friday against the Rockets.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Collison took an elbow to the head in Thursday's game against the Spurs, The Associated Press reports. Consider him a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Rockets.
Impact: Collison had to get four staples put in and was able to return in the fourth quarte. The injury doesn't appear to be serious, though Collison doesn't hold much fantasy value in most leagues regardless.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Adams returned to his bench role Thursday against the Spurs an posted five points, five rebounds, and one steal in 12 minutes of action.
Impact: Adams had been starting for the injured Kendrick Perkins (groin), but returned to the bench for Thursday's game. With Perkins expected to rest during back-to-back contests, expect Adams to get the start Friday against the Rockets.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins (groin) will sit Friday's game against the Rockets, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Perkins returned to action Thursday after a long absence and managed to log 12 minutes. However, the Thunder will be cautious with the veteran and slowly ease him into the lineup, having him sit on most back-to-backs. He'll rest Friday, which means Steven Adams may get the start once again.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Kevin Durant scored 28 points on Thursday night versus San Antonio, his 39th consecutive games scoring 25 or more.
Impact: If Durant scores 25 or more in Oklahoma City's game on Friday versus Houston, he will match Michael Jordan for the longest streak in 50 years by reaching that mark in 50 straight games.
Sun. Mar 30, 2014 | STATS
News: Ibaka had 17 points and blocked four shots in Sunday's win over Utah.
Impact: Ibaka has recorded three-plus blocks in four of his last six games.
Sun. Mar 30, 2014 | STATS
News: Durant scored 31 on 9-of-13 shooting, including a 4-of-6 mark from deep, and grabbed nine rebounds in Sunday's win over the Jazz.
Impact: These types of performance have become beyond routine for Durant, who is averaging 35.2 points over his last 10 while going 37 of 73 (50.7 percent) from 3-point range.
