Russell Westbrook resting for Wizards Wednesday in second leg of back-to-back
Washington Wizards point guard Russell Westbrook (rest) is out Wednesday against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Westbrook will sit out the second leg of the Wizards' back-to-back after playing nearly 30 minutes Tuesday. He finished with 19 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists, and a triple. Raul Neto (groin) is questionable, so Jerome Robinson and Cassius Winson may be asked to play more than normal. Neto will likely start if active.
numberFire’s models project Neto for 23.0 FanDuel points versus the Pelicans and he has a salary of $4,200 on Wednesday’s 12-game slate. Neto is averaging 24.7 FanDuel points as a starter this season.
