Russell Westbrook Questionable

The Rockets have been without Russell Westbrook all series, and the former Thunder point guard remains day-to-day with a quadriceps injury. Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni sounded more optimistic Tuesday and indicated he might be able to suit up against his old team Wednesday in Game 5.

James Harden has handled even more of the offensive load than usual in Westbrook’s absence, tallying 32 points and 15 assists in Game 4.

Schroder carried the Thunder with a career postseason-high 30 points in 31 minutes off the bench. Point guard Chris Paul was 0-for-5 from 3-point range but still finished with 26 points in 37 minutes. The Thunder also outrebounded the Rockets, 56-45.
