As expected, Russell Westbrook (right quad strain) will miss Tuesday's playoff opener and Eric Gordon will start in his place.
Westbrook is expected to miss "at least the first few" games of the postseason, and possibly more. It puts the Rockets in a tough spot against a game Thunder squad, who have plenty of guard depth to throw at James Harden. Gordon gets a bump in playoff leagues and will be an elite 3-point producer if his shot is on.
