Thunder G Russell Westbrook to Miss First Game of the Season

With his team already etched in stone as the sixth seed and set to play the Houston Rockets in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook will miss his first game of the season Tuesday. 

Westbrook will be given rest against the Minnesota Timberwolves, likely giving Victor Oladipo more DFS relevance in the team's season-to-last regular season game of the year. 

Look for Semaj Christon to start in Westbrook's place in this meaningless late-season game. It's not yet known whether Russ will sit for the Thunder's season finale on Wednesday. Either way, he will end the regular season averaging a triple-double and likely taking away the NBA MVP award.
