Westbrook's production has been staggering. He put up 90 fantasy points in his return from facial surgery Wednesday in what was one of the best outputs on our daily game this season. He topped 70 fantasy points in each of his last two games before the injury. Clearly, Westbrook is on another planet right now and needs to be started against a Bulls roster decimated by injuries.

With Westbrook back after missing a game due to facial surgery, Augustin still put up 28 fantasy points last night. It was against the woeful Philadelphia 76ers, and his price is too prohibitive to risk that kind of production becoming an anomaly. On the bright side, Augustin played 37 minutes to Westbrook's 42. If the team continues to run two point guards together, he could still be a worthwhile play. However, use tonight as a gauge before making that determination. HoopsHype

Now, a 49-point-triple-double performance is rare. How rare? It hasn’t been done since Larry Bird was still playing. You wanna know what’s even rarer? The fact that it was Westbrook’s fourth straight triple-double– a feat that hasn’t been completed since Michael Jordan in 1989. For The Win

What a crazy incident. Could you believe what happened and what was the process like after? Happened so quick. I was just blessed to be able to get up and be able to continue the game. But process was really quick thanks to the Thunder and the doctor in LA that was able to take care of my little dent. Did you have any say in what the mask is going to look like? Just regular. I mean, you can’t get crazy with the mask. The league is only going to (allow) me to have the clear mask. So that’s all I got. Oklahoman

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook underwent medical tests before leaving the arena following Friday's game at Portland after taking a knee to the side of the face. The team did not make Westbrook available to the media after the game, and it's unclear what type of injury he sustained or what he was being evaluated for. A further update is expected to be provided by the team in the coming days. "I don't know," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said when questioned about Westbrook's status. "We'll find out more later."
