M. Turner - C
Turner was ruled out for Sunday's game at Portland due to an illness, Jeremiah Johnson of Fox Sports Indiana reports.
R. Arcidiacono - PG
Arcidiacono is probable for Monday's game against the Spurs with right elbow discomfort.
J. Murray - PG
Murray (ankle), who is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Rockets, was able to get in some light conditioning work on the court during warmups, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
R. Westbrook - PG
Coach Mike D'Antoni confirmed that Westbrook would play Sunday against the Nuggets and sit out for rest purposes Monday in Utah, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
E. Gordon - SG
Gordon will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game at Denver, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
J. Harden - SG
Coach Mike D'Antoni ruled Harden (thigh) out for Sunday's game at Denver and labeled the guard as doubtful for Monday's game at Utah, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Though Harden was only briefly forced out of Friday's 131-124 win over the Timberwolves with the bruised left thigh, he wasn't in peak form during his 35 minutes of action, finishing with a season-low 12 points on 3-for-13 shooting from the field. The star guard looks like he'll get some much-needed maintenance for both ends of the Rockets' back-to-back set, though the team will presumably re-evaluate him early Monday before making a call on his status for the game in Utah. Backcourt mate Russell Westbrook will see even more usage Sunday sans Harden, but Eric Gordon may notice the biggest spike in value during the eight-time All-Star's absence. Gordon will start Sunday in place of Harden and could operate as the Rockets' primary option on offense Monday with D'Antoni already confirming that Westbrook would rest for the second half of the back-to-back set.
