Description: Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook will return to the lineup Monday after getting a night off Sunday against Dallas, according to Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman.
Insight: The Mavs smoked the Westbrook-less Thunder Sunday. Westbrook had played 10 straight games after returning from knee surgery on Feb. 20 and averaged 27.4 minutes, 24.1 points, 8.4 assists, 4.9 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 2.5 threes over his last eight. However, before March 16-17 the Thunder hadn't had a back-to-back since Jan. 31-Feb. 1, which was before Westbrook returned to the lineup. OKC has two more back-to-back sets in March and three in April, so we may see Westbrook get a few more games off to rest.

Description: Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook is likely to sit out at least a few of the team's six remaining back-to-backs, according to head coach Scott Brooks. SOURCE: Anthony Slater, The Oklahoman
Insight: That's not what fantasy owners want to hear. Adding Reggie Jackson (currently available in 45.4 percent of ESPN leagues) could ease the pain.
