As expected, Russell Westbrook won't suit up for Thursday's contest vs. the Lakers as he nurses a bruised right quad.
Ben McLemore will get the spot-start and has the opportunity to provide some short-term value without Russ. Austin Rivers and Chris Clemons could also see some additional minutes while James Harden will be asked to do everything for the Rockets against a Lakers team that will be without LeBron James (groin).
