  • Will Russell Westbrook playing today?

Westbrook is still out for Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies. He met with Jazz management after being traded from the Lakers. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN says Westbrook is likely to take some time before the All-Star break to decide if he wants a buyout from Utah or to stay with the team for the rest of the season.

Wojnarowski says that the Jazz want to focus on developing their younger players and haven’t told Westbrook what his role or minutes might be if he decides to stay.
