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.
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:
Houston Rockets (via Alykhan Bijani)
Out: Tyson Chandler (Rest), Michael Frazier (Right Ankle Sprain), Nene (Adductor – not with team), Danuel House (Leg laceration), Anthony Bennett (Left knee – not with team)
Probable: Russell Westbrook
Toronto Raptors (via Ryan Wolstat)
