Russell Westbrook (left thumb) is being ruled out ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Hornets.
Westbrook was doubtful coming into this one, so the news was expected. With the Rockets having a back-to-back coming up this week, it is likely that Westbrook will miss another game even if healthy. Ben McLemore will earn the start while Eric Gordon and Austin Rivers will see extra minutes off the bench.
