Rockets star point guard Russell Westbrook will not play Monday against the Grizzlies, resting the second half of Houston’s back-to-back, a source tells ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.

Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said before Sunday’s game against the Heat that Westbrook likely would rest the next night’s game.

But after Houston was routed, 129-100, on Sunday night in Miami, D’Antoni left open the possibility that Westbrook could play Monday, responding “maybe” when asked about the former MVP’s availability.

“You’re going to see tomorrow,” D’Antoni told reporters.

Westbrook played just 26 minutes Sunday night and struggled through his worst game as a member of the Rockets, finishing with season lows of 10 points, six assists and four rebounds while committing a season-high seven turnovers.

Westbrook is averaging 21.2 points, 9.2 assists and 9.8 rebounds in six games this season, his first with Houston.
