Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (quad) is out Sunday against the Kings.

As expected, the former MVP will not play due to a bruised right quad, and it will be his second straight absence. In his stead, Ben McLemore should draw another start.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Doubtful Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook is not likely to play in Sunday's matchup with the Kings according to coach Mike D'Antoni, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Houston was originally optimistic regarding Westbrook's status for Sunday but that is no longer the case. The Rockets are likely to err on the side of caution in order to ensure their star guard's health is up to par once the playoffs commence. Should he ultimately get ruled out, look for Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore to see increased run.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Optimistic for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike D'Antoni said following Thursday's win over the Lakers that he's "hopeful" Westbrook (quad) will play against the Kings on Sunday, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

"I think he has a real good shot at being ready [Sunday]," D'Antoni said, per Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston. "Having said that, we're not gonna push him." Westbrook's availability will be contingent on his being 100 percent, so a final decision may not be made until game day, but it looks as though things are currently trending in the right direction. He missed Thursday's tilt due to a minor right quad bruise.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Officially out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (quad) won't play in Thursday's contest against the Lakers, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

As expected, the Rockets will elect to hold out their star point guard, as Westbrook is currently battling a minor right quad bruise. Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore will likely see increased run in Westbrook's absence.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Unlikely to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (quad) remains questionable on the injury report, but the team expects that he'll sit out Thursday's game against the Lakers, Tim MacMahon of reports.

There isn't much reason for the Rockets to push Westbrook if he's feeling less than 100 percent, so this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. Assuming he's out, James Harden should take on an even bigger share of the offense, while Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore will be in line for increased minutes.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Questionable vs. Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Lakers due to a bruised right quad.

Westbrook's injury seems relatively minor, but the Rockets may still opt to exercise caution with the former MVP. If he sits out, more minutes would likely be shouldered by Ben McLemore and Austin Rivers, while James Harden would absorb an even bigger share of the offensive workload.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Late free throws help secure win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook dropped 31 points (10-21 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 10-12 FT), six boards, eight assists and one block in 38 minutes of his team's 120-116 win against Milwaukee on Sunday.

Westbrook came through in the clutch, knocking down four free-throw attempts in the final minute to help his team overcome a late eight-point deficit for the Rockets' second win since the season restarted. Westbrook led his team in scoring on a night where all five Houston starters finished in double figures. He'll face the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Two assists shy of triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook notched 31 points (13-30 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-8 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block in 44 minutes during Friday's 153-149 overtime win over the Mavericks.

Westbrook couldn't match Harden's impressive scoring production, but he also came close to a triple-double in what was a high-scoring affair against Dallas. Westbrook should remain a strong fantasy asset due to his ability to fill the stat sheet ahead of Sunday's contest against the Bucks.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Likely to see between 30-34 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook doesn't have a specific minutes restriction in place but is expected to see between 30-34 minutes during Friday's restart opener against the Mavericks, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Westbrook tested positive for coronavirus and was late to join the Rockets, practicing for the first time July 22 and seeing limited minutes in scrimmages. It sounds like there isn't much concern regarding his conditioning, but coach Mike D'Antoni will stop him from playing in excess of 35 minutes to be safe.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Quiet in second scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook finished with eight points (3-14 FG, 0-2 3PT, 2-2 FT) in Sunday's scrimmage against Memphis.

After playing just 15 minutes in Houston's first scrimmage, Westbrook was bumped up to 26 minutes Sunday, but he endured a rough night from the floor. Westbrook did add five rebounds and five assists to his final line, however.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Scores 10 points in limited action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook posted 10 points (5-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt), nine rebounds and an assist across 15 minutes in Friday's 94-83 scrimmage loss to the Raptors in Orlando.

Westbrook's limited role in the scrimmage wasn't a huge surprise since he is usually the first player to take a seat in back-to-back games, or when his presence isn't necessary to determine the outcome. His place as a fantasy go-to isn't in question, but Westbrook is 32 and in his 12th season as a pro. Westbrook owners should expect less from Westbrook if a game gets out of hand.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Playing first half of scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook will play in the first half of Friday's scrimmage against the Raptors, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

Westbrook joined the Rockets for his first bubble practice Wednesday, and coach Mike D'Antoni will try not to over-exert the point guard and keep his minutes limited in Friday's action. As a result, we should see more minutes for the likes of Chris Clemons, Ben McLemore and Eric Gordon.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (illness) joined the Rockets at practice Wednesday after completing the mandatory quarantine process upon arriving in Orlando on Monday, Tim MacMahon of reports.

Westbrook met with the media after the session, telling reporters that after testing positive for COVID-19 in late June, he never experienced any symptoms beyond a "stuffy nose," per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. With that in mind, the point guard shouldn't have too much difficulty getting his conditioning in order in advance of the NBA restart, but coach Mike D'Antoni said he was unwilling to commit to Westbrook being available for Friday's scrimmage with the Raptors, according to Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest. Houston has already clinched its spot in the postseason, but it enters the season restart four games behind the Clippers for the No. 2 seed and only one and a half games ahead of the Mavericks for the No. 7 seed. As a result, Westbrook could be asked to handle a normal minutes load as Houston aims to secure a favorable first-round matchup in the playoffs.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: In line to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (illness) is expected to take part in the Rockets' practice session Wednesday, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

Westbrook's arrival in Orlando was delayed after he tested positive for COVID-19 in late June, but he's since made the trip to Florida and is believed to have completed the quarantine process while submitting two negative test results. Given his lengthy layoff from competitive basketball, Westbrook will presumably face some limitations in Wednesday's practice, and he'll likely sit out Friday's scrimmage with the Raptors as well. Assuming the point guard experiences no complications during the ramp-up process, he should be ready to go by July 31, when the Rockets take on the Mavericks in their first game of the season restart.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Expected to arrive Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (illness) is expected to arrive in Orlando on Monday, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports.

Westbrook has been away from the team following a positive COVID-19 test back in June, but he'll make his long-awaited arrival to the Orlando bubble on Monday. The 2017 MVP will be subject to the requisite quarantine period before he'll be able to join the Rockets for practices and, eventually, scrimmages and seeding games.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Timetable still unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said Sunday that he's unsure when Westbrook (illness) will join the team in Orlando, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

D'Antoni said he's heard "nothing new" with regard to Westbrook's status, but the hope is that the All-Star guard is back with the team within the next few days. The head coach went on to note that he's been told Westbrook is in "pretty good shape," and he hopes the transition to practice -- and eventually game action -- will be relatively seamless. D'Antoni also acknowledged that Westbrook could face some initial limitations once seeding games begin. "[The medical staff] will determine when Russell is ready to go, or when he's ready to play 20 or 30 minutes," D'Antoni said.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Tests positive for coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook announced Monday via his personal Instagram account that he tested positive to COVID-19 prior to arriving in Orlando for the resumption of the NBA season.

Westbrook indicated that he's "feeling well" and is in the midst of the quarantine process, so it doesn't sound like the positive test will dissuade him from playing in Orlando once he's fully cleared. Due to the timing of the positive test, Westbrook will miss out on some conditioning work in practice, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Rockets are cautious with his minutes once he's eventually cleared to play. If Westbrook remains out or limited when Houston resumes its season July 31 against the Mavericks, James Harden would likely assume more ball-handling responsibilities, while more playing time and usage could become available for Eric Gordon and Austin Rivers.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Entering bubble early next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook will join his teammates in the Orlando bubble in three or four days, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

It remains unclear why Westbrook and James Harden are delaying their entry into the bubble. The team's first game is July 31 against the Mavericks.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Delaying entry into bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook did not travel with the Rockets to the Orlando bubble Thursday but will join the team in the near future, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

It's not immediately clear why Westbrook is delaying his entry, though there doesn't seem to be any concern around the situation. James Harden is delaying his entry as well.

Rockets' Russell Westbrook: Fills stat sheet in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook produced 27 points (11-17 FG, 5-6 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and four steals in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 117-111 win over the Timberwolves.

Westbrook has scored at least 20 points in every single game since Dec. 7, so he's virtually a lock to produce decent numbers every time he steps on the hardwood. One thing to note is that he's been scoring with a lot more accuracy of late, however, as the star point guard has made 53.4 percent of his field goals in his last six games. That kind of efficiency produces a huge boost if he's scoring at a high volume.
