    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook is likely to sit out either Friday's game against the Pacers or Saturday's game against the Wolves per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

    Westbrook struggled in his last game out and finished with just 30 minutes due to foul trouble and he has been averaging 32.6 minutes after receiving 34-36 in his past 10 seasons for the Thunder. This seems to be part of a greater plan to keep him fresh down the stretch as he also sat out a back-to-back on Nov 4. In that game, James Harden went off for 46-10-6 with seven 3-pointers and monster usage.
