  • Russell Westbrook (personal, ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game against the Kings.
    Advice: Westbrook's wife just gave birth to twins, so it would be surprising to see him take the court tonight, especially considering that he still hasn't gone through a full practice. We'd say he's much closer to doubtful, and owners can check back closer to tip-off for official confirmation on his status.
  • Russell Westbrook (personal) is not practicing on Sunday and there is currently no timetable for his return.
    Advice: Hopefully everything is OK with Westbrook and family. Coach Billy Donovan said that they didn't know if Russ would've even been physically able to play on Saturday if he was there and they never got to the point where they tried to test him to find out. He had basically done everything in Friday's practice and was trending towards playing, according to Donovan. Dennis Schroder will continue to start as long as Russ is out. The Thunder play next against the Kings on Monday. Stay tuned.
  • Russell Westbrook (personal) is listed 'out' for Monday's game vs. Sacramento.
    Advice: Westbrook and his wife just welcomed the birth of twin daughters, so he'll take more time to spend with his expanded family. Dennis Schroder gets another opportunity to shine with big minutes as the starting PG, but Westbrook could return as soon as Wednesday vs. Golden State.
  • Russell Westbrook (ankle) is listed as out for Saturday's game vs. the Suns.
    Advice: Although Russ was able to practice with the team on Friday, he is expected to miss his sixth straight contest. Assuming Westbrook is unable to play, Dennis Schroder will draw another start. Over OKC's last five games, Schroder is averaging 19.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.8 steals.
  • Russell Westbrook (personal) will not play against the Suns on Saturday.
    Advice: It's a surprise that he's being held out for personal reasons and hopefully everything is OK with Westbrook. He went through shootaround today and it sounds like this could be his last game out of the lineup due to an ankle sprain. Dennis Schroder gets another start while the Thunder will have plenty of usage to go around.
  • Russell Westbrook (ankle) participated in shootaround, but his status for Saturday's game vs. the Suns is uncertain.
    Advice: Westbrook, who has missed each of the Thunder's previous five contests, is listed as "out" on the injury report. However, he was able to take part in practice on Friday, including part of the contact portions, and was able to shoot around with the team Saturday morning. The Thunder and Suns tip off at 9:00 pm EST, so we should have a definitive update on his status by 7:30, when coach Billy Donovan speaks with the media.
  • Coach Billy Donovan said that Russell Westbrook (ankle) participated in Friday's practice, including part of the contact portions, but there is nothing definitive on his status for Saturday's game vs. Phoenix.
    Advice: Russ has missed each of the Thunder's previous five games, but took part in shootaround prior to Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks. Being able to take part in a full practice on Friday is further proof that he is making progress and quite close to a return. We'll get another update on his status after Saturday morning's shootaround. If Westbrook is unable to play vs. the Suns, Dennis Schroder will draw another start. Paul George, coming off a season-high 35 points, all has a higher usage rate with Russ off the floor.
  • Russell Westbrook (ankle) participated at Wednesday's shootaround.
    Advice: Westbrook is currently being listed as "out" for tonight's game, but Paul George implied that he could play during his media availability, and Thunder reporter Brett Dawson is saying that Westbrook will be "evaluated" later today. It sounds like there's a chance Russ could take the floor tonight, so owners will want to check back for another update closer to tip-off.
  • Russell Westbrook (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.
    Advice: Westbrook was able to participate at shootaround, so he is making progress, but Wednesday will mark his fifth straight game on the sidelines. With Westbrook unavailable, Dennis Schroder will be drawing another start and Paul George will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense. The Thunder play against on Saturday in Phoenix, and for now, we'll consider Westbrook questionable for that one.
