Houston Rockets star Russell Westbrook will not play in tonight’s (29/12) game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Westbrook will miss the game (the second of Houston’s back-to-back) as part of the team’s load management strategy.

James Harden is also out for Houston, due to a toe injury. The Rockets are at 22-10 in the standings.
