Coach Scott Brooks said Westbrook will have a minutes restriction "in the mid-20s" Tuesday at Houston, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. The 32-year-old saw his first game action since Jan. 8 on Sunday and had nine points (3-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds and six assists across 25 minutes. Westbrook is starting again Tuesday and should have a similar workload, with Raul Neto (groin) operating as the backup point guard.
Westbrook (quadriceps) totaled nine points (3-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds and six assists across 25 minutes in Sunday's 121-101 loss to the Spurs. Listed as questionable heading into the contest following a two-week layoff, Westbrook gained clearance to play ahead of tipoff, albeit with a minutes restriction. Though he flirted with a triple-double during his time on the court, Westbrook struggled with his shooting, as had been the case prior to the injury. Westbrook should have his restriction bumped up to around 30 minutes -- if not lifted entirely -- for Tuesday's game in Houston, but the veteran point guard looks like he'll continue to have issues with his efficiency. He's converting at a 37 percent clip from the field and a 64.1 percent clip from the free-throw line this season, both career-worst rates.
Westbrook (quad) will be available for Sunday's game against the Spurs, Paul Garica of Project Spurs reports. He's expected to have a restriction of roughly 25 minutes, per coach Scott Brooks. Due to postponements, Westbrook only ended up missing two contests, but this will be the point guard's first action since back on Jan. 8. Prior to the quad injury, Westbrook was averaging just 19.3 points per game on 37.8 percent shooting, while committing 5.3 turnovers per game.
Westbrook (quadriceps) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Spurs. Westbrook hasn't played since Jan. 8 due to a quad injury, and the Wizards as a team haven't played since Jan. 11 due to health and safety protocols resulting in postponements. It's not a great sign that Westbrook is only questionable still after so much time off.
Westbrook (quadriceps) isn't sure whether he'll be able to play Sunday against the Spurs, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. Westbrook was ruled out for Friday's game against the Bucks before the matchup was postponed. Coach Scott Brooks said that Westbrook appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's contest, but he still wasn't sure whether he'd be able to play against San Antonio. If he's unavailable Sunday, Raul Neto and Jerome Robinson could see increased run for the Wizards.
