The shortest NBA player with 20 or more rebounds

I would please like to know if Fat Lever is the shortest NBA player with 20 or more rebounds in a single game at 6'3"? He was the guard other than the "Big O" Oscar Robertson who grabbed 20 or more rebounds in a single game at 6'5". Career high in rebounds for both Lever and Robertson each are 22.

In the ABA, 6-2 guard Warren Jabali (then known as Warren Armstrong) grabbed 20 rebounds, along with scoring 30 points and 8 assists on 3-28-69 in an Oakland Oaks win over Houston.

Thanks to hoops historian Matthew Shuh for this information.

This was in West's rookie season, when he got his career-high rebounds per minute rate, 7.9 per 36 (career 5.8 Reb/36)
In this game, all 96 guard minutes were by West (45), Selvy (43) and Hundley (8); so it's not as if West was playing forward at all.
Lakers out-rebounded Hawks 87-64.

Through 1960-61, the only qualifying Guards to average as many as 7.7 rebounds per game for a season were Tom Gola (5 times), Richie Guerin (twice), West, and fellow rookie Oscar Robertson. All 4 did it in 1961.

Guerin did not average over 7.5 Reb/36 . Gola is listed as G-F.
