Fantasy Impact:

Westbrook was benched with four minutes to go during Wednesday's matchup with the Pacers. According to head coach Frank Vogel, he was quoted as saying "Playing the guys that I thought were going to win the game". Westbrook left the arena and skipped media availability, it's unclear what kind of penalties will be levied or if the veteran guard is no longer on the team. It's a situation to continue monitoring.
