Westbrook scored 22 points (8-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and added three rebounds, 11 assists, and three steals in 36 minutes against the Hawks Friday.
Excellent box score stuffing games from Westbrook are hardly newsworthy, since they seem to happen almost every time he takes the court. What makes Friday stand out is his 50 percent field goal efficiency. As much as owners might hope that figure is a sign of things to come, it is pretty unlikely that the three-time All-Star would experience that kind of major shift in the middle of his seventh season. It's far more likely that Friday was an outlier in that regard.

Westbrook scored 22 points (5-21 FG, 1-5 3P, 11-14 FT) with seven rebounds, five assists and a steal in 29 minutes during Monday's loss to the Warriors.
His shooting woes continued, and Westbrook is now bricking it at a 30% clip (24-for-80) over the last four games. His ability to get to the free throw line, and his production in other categories, will keep him afloat as a fantasy asset until the slump runs its course, however.

With Durant playing just 10 games so far this season, Westbrook has averaged a career-high 28 points. Now that Durant is back, expect Westbrook's scoring to dip slightly, but his assist numbers to increase.
