    Will miss the last game of the season and be re evaluated before playoffs start.

    Rockets Medical Update

    HOUSTON – Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that guard Russell Westbrook underwent an MRI in Orlando for a quadriceps injury. The results revealed a strained quadriceps muscle in his right leg. Westbrook will be out for Friday’s game against Philadelphia and his status will be re-evaluated before the playoffs start next week.

    Im not sure anyone can get to 100% after a Quad injury without taking significant time off.

    Lowkey the Rockets might be better against OKC without him.

    Def need him for the Lakers tho.

    Karma? Mr Morey liked CP3 more than Russ, Harden and Tily wanted Russ.

    Internet says a grade 1 quad strain takes 1-2 weeks to recover.

    This was a TF trade. Morey tried to make the best of it afterwards. This is concerning.

    I think he will be fine. It is Wednesday. Perhaps come back the 3rd or 4th game of playoffs. Hopefully the Rockets would be 3-1 or 2-2 and go from there.

    He won’t. The playoffs start Monday. Best case scenario is he’s able to join at some point of the series
