For everyone that has been anxiously awaiting the debut of Russell Westbrook in a Houston Rockets jersey, the time might finally be here. The superstar point guard has officially been listed as probable for the game against the Toronto Raptors at 6 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

The Rockets come off their second dominant win in a row after defeating the Los Angeles Clippers 109-96 last Friday while this will be Toronto’s first preseason game. Both teams changed drastically over the summer, as Houston acquired eight-time All-Star Russell Westbrook while the defending champion Raptors lost three-time All-Star and two-time Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard.

After recently extending star point guard Kyle Lowry‘s contract for another year, the Toronto Raptors will get their first look at the new team after the losses of Leonard and Danny Green.

While the Houston Rockets will likely get to see Westbrook in action, there are still a few injuries to report heading into Tuesday’s game. Here is all you need to know about the matchup:
