Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook will not play Sunday at home against Utah.

Westbrook is getting the night off, as the team seeks to take advantage of its schedule.

Westbrook, who is coming off two offseason knee surgeries to repair a torn lateral meniscus, returned to the Thunder lineup earlier than expected on Nov. 3.

Westbrook's knee is healed, but the team saw an opportunity to get its All-Star point guard five straight days of rest.

The Thunder last played on Thursday, and by sitting out Sunday, Westbrook will have five days off before Oklahoma City hosts San Antonio on Wednesday.

Reggie Jackson is expected to start in Westbrook's place.
