What we saving him for?
Future trade value. Westbrook still has a lot of cache around the league. Less injured means higher trade probability.
Current player development. Not having the ball in Westb's hands gives others new roles, more responsibility in game.
Complete capitulation. Beal hasn't played due to something he could have played through. I think Westbrook has A LOT MORE LEFT. He should be preserved before he ruins his body going all out.
I say save a thirty-something because he's got value that I don't want to see wasted. I want to see Mathews get 15-20 shots. Same with Deni, who I'd also like to see register 10 plus assists. Those things only happen is Brooks is forced to not play Westbrook and Westbrook is not actively playing.
Thanks for inquiring, CobraCommander.
