Oklahoma City Thunder PG Russell Westbrook is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after suffering a fracture in his right hand on Thursday night.

The Thunder continue to drop like flies as Westbrook joins Kevin Durant and Reggie Jackson on the shelf. Sebastian Telfair will start in place or Westbrook and should be owned in most leagues as a result.

J.J. Redick scored just five points (1-10 FGA/2-2 FTA) and was 1-7 from beyond the arc Thursday in the Clippers' 93-90 win over the Thunder.

The good news for Redick's fantasy owners is this was probably his worst game of the season.

Jamal Crawford scored 16 points off the bench Thursday (5-15 FGA/4-4 FTA) with two rebounds, two assists, three steals and three turnovers in the Clippers' 93-90 victory over the Thunder.

Crawford had a rough night, though that did not stop him from taking 15 shots.

Chris Paul scored 22 points (9-18 FGA/3-7 FTA) with four rebounds, seven assists, three steals, a block and zero turnovers Thursday as the Clippers beat the Thunder 93-90.

Paul was nearly the goat in this game after he missed two free throws late. In the end the Clippers won, and this will go down as just another solid game for Paul.

Blake Griffin scored a team-high 23 points (8-18 FGA/7-10 FTA) with seven rebounds, three assists and a steal as the Clippers beat the depleted Thunder 93-90 Thursday.

Griffin got his points, though the Thunder did a good job making him work for it.

Serge Ibaka scored 17 points (7-13 FGA/1-2 FTA) on 2-of-5 three-point shooting with nine rebounds and two assists as the Thunder fell to the Clippers 93-90 Thursday.

Ibaka had a good look at a three-pointer at the buzzer that would have tied the game, but it came up short. He will have to pick up even more of the scoring slack after Russell Westbrook became the latest Oklahoma City player to succumb to injury.

Perry Jones led all scorers Thursday with a career-high 32 points (10-17 FGA/9-11 FTA) while adding seven rebounds, three assists and a block as the Thunder fell to the Clippers 93-90.

This performance could not have been further from Jones's three-point effort Wednesday night. Jones should continue to play heavy minutes with all of the Thunder's perimeter players out, and fantasy players can expect the same inconsistent play going forward.

Russell Westbrook scored two points (1-3 FGA/0-1 FTA) in nine minutes before exiting the Thunder's 93-90 loss Thursday with a hand injury. He had four assists, a steal and three turnovers.

Westbrook's initial diagnosis is reportedly a small fracture in his hand. Sebastian Telfair played most of the game after Westbrook left, and he would be worth a pickup in most leagues if Westbrook is out for awhile.

Update: Westbrook was seen courtside with his hand wrapped in ice following his hand injury.

Westbrook will be evaluated Friday.

Al-Farouq Aminu scored 16 points (6-7 FGA/ 3-4 FTA) going 1-for-1 from three-point range with 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in the Mavs 120-102 win over the Jazz on Thursday.

After playing just five minutes in his first game with Dallas, Aminu broke out Thursday. The rebounds are not a fluke, though he does not contribute enough in other areas to be owned in 12-team leagues.
