How Kawhi’s load management issue could affect the Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets have made it known that they want to rest Russell Westbrook and James Harden in favor of load management, as Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said so himself.

This strategy has already been employed with Westbrook, as the team decided to rest him in the first sequence of back-to-back games of the season. The Houston Rockets decided to rest “The Brodie” in their sixth game against the Memphis Grizzlies, despite him being fully healthy.

The Los Angeles Clippers have decided to employ a similar strategy with 2019 NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, who has an injury history of his own.
