Top Cam Whitmore News

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Posts 13 points in return

    Whitmore (ankle) recorded 13 points (5-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds and two blocks across 24 minutes Thursday in the Rockets' 127-105 loss to the Pelicans.

    After practicing Wednesday without issue, Whitmore was cleared to return from a three-game absence coming out of the All-Star break. The rookie hit double figures in the scoring column for the ninth time in 10 games, but he may not be able to count on reaching 24 minutes regularly in competitive contests. Whitmore should at least have a firm hold on a rotation spot for the foreseeable future while Tari Eason (lower leg) faces a murky timeline for a return.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Will play Thursday

    Whitmore (ankle) will play Thursday against New Orleans, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Whitmore missed the Rockets' final three games before the All-Star break due to an ankle injury but will be back in action after having a week to rest. Over his last five appearances, he's averaged 16.4 points and 2.4 rebounds in 19.8 minutes per game.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Remains out against Memphis

    Whitmore (ankle) won't play in Wednesday's game versus the Grizzlies.

    Whitmore's absence streak will extend to three games Wednesday due to a right ankle sprain despite coach Ime Udoka saying the rookie forward could return against Memphis. Whitmore's next chance to suit up will come after the All-Star break on Feb. 22 against New Orleans.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Out Monday, may play Wednesday

    Whitmore (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Knicks, but head coach Ime Udoka said the rookie could return for Wednesday's game against Memphis, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Whitmore will miss his second consecutive game Monday due to a right ankle sprain, but the 19-year-old appears to be facing a short-term absence. Even if he doesn't show enough improvement in practice Tuesday to put himself on a path to play Wednesday, he should be ready to go coming out of the All-Star break. Whitmore has proven to be a strong per-minute scoring threat with averages of 17.4 points in 20.0 minutes per game over his last nine outings, but he's not providing much in other categories aside from rebounds (4.7 per game in that stretch) and three-pointers (2.7). Moreover, he may not have an avenue to see his minutes increase dramatically while starting forwards Dillon Brooks and Jabari Smith are both healthy.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Out again Monday

    Whitmore (ankle) is out for Monday's game against the Knicks.

    Whitmore will miss a second consecutive game due to a right ankle sprain. Amen Thompson, Jae'Sean Tate and Dillon Brooks could see increased minutes in Whitmore's absence.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Out with ankle sprain

    Whitmore (ankle) will not play in Saturday's contest versus the Hawks, Ben DuBose of USA Today reports.

    Whitmore sprained his right ankle in Friday's game against the Raptors after accumulating 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes. It is no surprise that the Rockets have opted to rule him out on the second night of a back-to-back set. The rookie's next chance to suit up will come Monday against the Knicks. In his absence, Amen Thompson, Jae'Sean Tate and Dillon Brooks are all candidates to see slightly increased workloads.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Done for night with ankle sprain

    Whitmore won't return to Friday's game against Toronto due to a right ankle sprain, Michael Grange of Sportsnet.ca reports. He finished with 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.

    Despite coming off the bench Friday, Whitmore was leading the Rockets in scoring on the night before the ankle sprain ended his game early. Houston will finish up its back-to-back set Saturday with a matchup against the Hawks, and Whitmore's injury makes it unlikely he'll be available for that contest. Whitmore's potential absence Saturday could open up a spot in the rotation for Reggie Bullock, or perhaps result in players such as Aaron Holiday, Jeff Green and Jae'Sean Tate having higher minutes ceilings off the bench.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Career-best 25 points Friday

    Whitmore closed with 25 points (10-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and two steals in 21 minutes during Friday's 135-106 win over the Raptors.

    The Rockets took a 19-point leads into halftime and were able to empty their bench in the fourth quarter, giving Whitmore a chance to post the best scoring numbers of his young career -- topping the 24 points he scored just four games earlier. The rookie out of Villanova fell to Houston with the 20th pick in the 2023 Draft due to long-term health concerns, but as the season has gone on he's looked more and more like a steal. Over the last 13 games he's averaged 14.9 points, 5.1 boards and 2.2 threes over 21.8 minutes a contest.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Gets buckets in win

    Whitmore ended with 20 points (7-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and six rebounds in 18 minutes during Monday's 135-119 victory over the Lakers.

    Whitmore came out gunning, racking up 16 points in his first seven minutes of action while also having multiple threes rim out to take an even bigger night off the table. The 19-year-old is on the rise as a potent offensive threat for the Rockets, but he might struggle to surpass 20 minutes on a regular basis moving forward after Jabari Smith (ankle) returned from a four-game absence Monday.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Continues producing

    Whitmore registered 19 points (6-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one block in 29 minutes during Saturday's 106-104 loss to Brooklyn.

    Whitmore co-led Houston in scoring Saturday, and the rookie has now canned 14 of his last 32 three-point attempts. Tari Eason (leg) is dealing with an extended absence, potentially as a stress fracture aggravation, and Jabari Smith's (ankle) return timetable remains unclear, so Whitmore's rest-of-season usage and outlook are trending up.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: First career double-double Friday

    Whitmore totaled 24 points (9-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists over 20 minutes during Friday's 138-104 win over Charlotte.

    Whitmore had a productive performance off the bench Friday. Not only did he register the first double-double of his young career, his points and rebounding output were both career highs for the rookie out of Villanova. Whitmore has established a rotational bench role for himself since the beginning of the new year and is averaging 11.9 points and 4.4 rebounds over 19.0 minutes per game in January.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Moves back to bench

    Whitmore isn't in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Trail Blazers, Jackson Gatlin of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    Jeff Green will replace Whitmore in the starting lineup Wednesday. Whitmore is averaging 11.7 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 19.7 minutes across his last five appearances coming off the bench.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Will make first career start

    Whitmore will start Sunday's game against the Celtics, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    With Fred VanVleet (back) and Jabari Smith (ankle) out, Whitmore and Amen Thompson will start alongside Jalen Green, Dillon Brooks and Alperen Sengun. It's Whitmore's first career start, but when he's played 20-plus minutes (four games), Whitmore has averaged 17.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.8 blocks in 27.8 minutes per game this season.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Hot from deep

    Whitmore contributed 17 points (6-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-3 FT), five rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 27 minutes during Saturday's 127-126 overtime win over the Jazz.

    Whitmore boomed from beyond the arc Saturday, which is an encouraging sign after posting 33.3 percent shooting on 3.8 threes per game while looking pensive as a shooter across eight prior contests. His 11.1 points and 4.0 rebounds in 19.1 minutes per game over that span represent quality production from the rookie overall. With Tari Eason (leg) amid a multi-week absence, Whitmore should continue to see a relevant role.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Strong outing off bench in defeat

    Whitmore finished with 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal over 23 minutes in Monday's 124-115 loss to Philadelphia.

    Whitmore led all bench players in Monday's contest in rebounds while finishing with a bench-high-tying scoring total in a balanced showing on the Rockets' second unit. Whitmore has tallied at least 14 points in four games this season, including in three of his last four outings. He has now hauled in six or more boards in two straight contests and in three games this year.
