Rockets' Russell Westbrook (quad) to be limited to 25-30 minutes Monday

Houston Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni said Russell Westbrook (quad) would be limited to 25-30 minutes in Monday night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

What It Means:

Westbrook missed the first four games of the Rockets' playoff series, but did manage to play in the fifth game of the series. Before that game D'Antoni mentioned that Westbrook would be held to 25-28 minutes (he eventually played 23:35, but the game was not competitive). Westbrook should be available to contribute more if needed tonight.

Our models project Westbrook to play for just over 32 minutes Monday, which isn't far off of his reported minutes limit. He's projected to score 40.79 fantasy points tonight with 21.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 6.1 assists.
