Nwaba will start Monday's game against the Hornets, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 in Houston reports.

With several players in the COVID protocols and both Jalen Green (rest) and Kevin Porter (hamstring) unavailable, the Rockets will go with a smaller lineup and turn to Nwaba at power forward alongside Christian Wood. Nwaba should be set for a jump in minutes, but there's not a ton of fantasy upside here.
