Russell Westbrook will return to action on Tuesday, when the Houston Rockets face the San Antonio Spurs.

The superstar of the Rockets was dealing with a quad injury (bruised quad), but he is now expected to suit up.

Westbrook will not play on Wednesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers in order to rest.

On the other hand, the Rockets will rest James Harden against the Spurs, with the MVP finalist returning to the lineup on Wednesday.
