Russell Westbrook traded to the Rockets

Russell Westbrook has been traded to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Chris Paul, first round picks in 2024, 2026, and pick swaps in 2021, and 2025.

Fantasy Impact

Russell Westbrook has reunited with James Harden to form quite the dynamic duo in Houston. With the Thunder entering a rebuilding phase, they decided to move on from Westbrook and his enormous contract, which includes a $46.7 million player option in 2022-2023. His fantasy value will take a small hit, due to the fact he is sharing the ball now with James Harden. Westbrook averaged 22.9 points, 11.1 rebounds, 10.7 assists, and 1.9 steals in 73 games for Thunder last season.

Another triple-double for Westbrook

Russell Westbrook racked up another of his hallmark triple-doubles, this one on Sunday in a 132-126 win over the Timberwolves. Over 38 minutes, Westbrook put up 27 points (10-for-22 FG, 2-for-6 3PT), 10 rebounds, 15 assists and one steal.

Fantasy Impact

The assists and rebounds were both team-highs, and Westbrook is back to playing at a high level. Fantasy owners will be happy with this production, and Westbrook will be an enticing daily play for the final two regular season games, as his output is justifying his salary.

Russell Westbrook sees team-high 15 assists in win

Russell Westbrook saw a team-high 15 assists in the Thunder's 126-110 over the Pistons on Friday. Playing for 35 minutes, Westbrook tallied 19 points (6-for-18 FG, 1-for-4 3PT), eight rebounds, 15 assists, and one steal.

Fantasy Impact

After his historic 20-20-20 game on Tuesday, Westbrook was happy to distribute the ball early and often to his teammates. With the Thunder looking to avoid drifting back into the eight-spot, expect Russell to be heavily involved in Sunday's game against the Timberwolves.

Russell Westbrook makes history with 20/20/20 line

Russell Westbrook put in 20 points, 21 dimes, 20 boards and three steals in 37 minutes of game action on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Russ shot just 35 from the field and 22 from deep but he also put up just the second 20/20/20 game in NBA history, dedicating his strong effort to late MC Nipsey Hussle. Russ has three triple-doubles in his last four outings and the Thunder are still fighting for seeding so expect more strong play from the former MVP.
