Nwaba registered 15 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), one rebound, one assist, one block and one steal over 14 minutes during Sunday's 130-105 loss to the Pelicans.
Nwaba scored a season-high 15 points in the loss, highlighting just what a struggle it has been for him this season. In fact, he has scored in double-digits just six times, struggling to carve out a regular spot in the rotation. While the Rockets are likely to change up their rotation moving forward, it is unlikely they view Nwaba as a crucial piece of their future. Based on that fact, he is not a name to be monitoring outside of the deepest formats.
