Russell Westbrook will rest for Wizards Wednesday in back-to-back

Washington Wizards point guard Russell Westbrook (rest) is out for Wednesday against the Miami Heat.

What It Means:

Westbrook will sit out the second leg of the Wizards' back-to-back after recording his fifth triple-double of the season on Tuesday. Raul Neto (left groin) will also remain sidelined, so look for Ish Smith to draw the start in the Wizards' backcourt. Troy Brown Jr. and Cassius Winston should also see more run while Bradley Beal figures to take on more of the offensive load.

Beal is averaging 57.1 FanDuel points in games without Westbrook this season and he has a salary of $10,800 on Wednesday's 10-game slate. He has registered a 9.6-percent assist rate increase without Westbrook while leading the team with a 37.9 percent usage rate.
