The Rockets are tied 2-2 in their series with the Thunder.
Westbrook, who came to Houston in a trade with Oklahoma City this past offseason, has missed the first four games of the series with a strained quadriceps muscle.
Westbrook had a solid regular season for the Rockets, averaging 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game.
His potential return for Game 5 would be a huge boost for a Houston team that has lost two straight to allow Oklahoma City to even the series.
