• Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook will have his minutes kept to around the 30 mark in Wednesday's Game 7 against the Thunder.

    Westbrook played 23 and 27 minutes in his first two playoff games back from a quad strain, so he's clearly not ready for the usual allotment, though one can't help but wonder how hard that cap is with Houston's season on the line tonight. The Brodie hasn't been good in his two games — shooting 3-for-13 in the first and committing seven turnovers, many of them backbreaking in the second — but will need to step it up if the favored Rockets want to dispatch a feisty Thunder team.
