With Russell Westbrook sidelined with a bruised right quad, Mike D'Antoni will give Ben McLemore the spot-start on Thursday vs. the Lakers.
The news of Westbrook being sidelined will affect several players on the Rockets, including McLemore. Austin Rivers, Danuel House Jr. and Chris Clemons will see more shot attempts and McLemore Rivers are the most intriguing DFS tournament plays. James Harden could have a monster night if he plays his typical workload and we could see his ridiculous usage with Russ increase to an even more ridiculous number without his running mate.
