Russell Westbrook (right quad strain) will play in Saturday's Game 5 matchup vs. the Thunder.
It was reported that Westbrook was set to play on Wednesday if the game had not been postponed and so he's gotten to rest up and heal even more now that the game is being played on Saturday. With the series tied 2-2 and the Rockets losing the last two games, they need him now more than ever. This will be his Rockets' playoff debut and he'll likely look to come out swinging. James Harden will have the ball in his hands less and Eric Gordon won't be seeing as many shots but they're definitely just happy to have The Brodie back in the lineup.
