Nwaba will come off the bench Monday against Philadelphia, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.

Nwaba started the previous four contests amid some injuries and COVID-19 absences, but the Rockets will shake things up and go with Jae'Sean Tate and Garrison Mathews on the wing Monday, while Jalen Green and Eric Gordon still start in the backcourt. Nwaba is capable of occasionally popping for some defensive production but overall he's not much of a fantasy consideration.
