Top Rockets News

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Will play Wednesday

    Sengun (illness) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    The big man was held out of Saturday's game against Detroit due to an illness, but after putting in a full practice Monday he's been removed from the injury report altogether. Obviously, this is great news for fantasy managers as the Rockets enter a three-games-in-four-nights stretch. Over his last 10 appearances, Sengun has two triple-doubles while posting 18.9 points, 10.0 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks per game.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Remains out Wednesday

    Green (calf) won't play Wednesday against Oklahoma City.

    Green didn't practice Monday or Tuesday, so it's no surprise that he'll miss a second straight game with a bruised right calf. The fact that he's been ruled out well in advance of Wednesday's contest isn't the most encouraging sign, and fantasy managers should be prepared for the possibility that Green also misses at least one half of the Rockets' upcoming back-to-back set Friday (versus Toronto) and Saturday (at Oklahoma City).

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Still not practicing

    Green (calf) didn't practice Tuesday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

    Green was sidelined for Saturday's win over the Pistons due to a right calf bruise and didn't practice Monday or Tuesday, putting his status for Wednesday's game against the Thunder in serious jeopardy. However, further clarity on his availability will surface when Houston releases its next official injury report. Kevin Porter (foot) remains out, so if Green is also sidelined again, Daishen Nix, Josh Christopher and TyTy Washington would all be candidates for increased roles.

  • Rockets' Kevin Porter: No return timetable

    Porter (foot/toe) said Tuesday that there's still no timetable for his return to game action, Michael Shapiro of SI.com reports.

    Porter still isn't practicing or doing any basketball-related drills while rehabbing from a left foot injury and will remain out indefinitely. Fantasy managers can safely keep Porter on the bench until reports of him returning to practice surface or he's upgraded to questionable on the Rockets' official injury report.

  • Rockets' Kevin Porter: Not yet practicing

    Porter (foot) sat out Monday's practice and is set to remain out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The Rockets haven't provided any concrete updates regarding where exactly Porter stands in his recovery from the bruised left foot that has kept him sidelined for each of the team's last nine games, but his continued absence from practice means he'll be sidelined again as Houston kicks off a three-game week. Considering that the Rockets close the week with a Friday/Saturday back-to-back set versus the Raptors and Thunder, respectively, Porter may be available to play in just one game this week even if he's able to return to practice Tuesday and/or Thursday.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Sits out practice

    Green (calf) didn't participate in Monday's practice session, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Green sat out Saturday's win over the Pistons due to the right calf bruise, but the Rockets remain hopeful that he'll be able to return to action Wednesday against the Thunder despite missing practice Monday. Over his last six appearances, Green has averaged 23.5 points, 4.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 35.5 minutes per game.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Practices Monday

    Sengun (illness) participated in Monday's practice session, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Sengen was unavailable for Saturday's game against Detroit due to a non-COVID illness, but it was encouraging to see him back at practice Monday. It's certainly possible that he'll return to game action for Wednesday's matchup against Oklahoma City. He's posted double-doubles in four of his last six appearances and has averaged 22.0 points, 11.3 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.3 steals in 35.8 minutes per game during that time.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Racks up 12 boards

    Smith chipped in seven points (2-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and two steals in 34 minutes during Saturday's 117-114 victory over Detroit.

    Smith turned in a dreadful shooting line and hit only 16.7 percent of his attempts from the field. He was able to make up for it by snagging 12 boards, which marks his best night on the glass since Jan. 4. Smith also continues to make an impact at the rim by swatting away at least one shot in each of his last four games.

  • Rockets' Kenyon Martin: Secures another double-double

    Martin had 15 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist and one block over 27 minutes during Saturday's 117-114 win over Detroit.

    Martin shot efficiently from the field and notched his second double-double in three games. He's managed to score in double figures in seven of his team's last eight contests, averaging 14.5 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists over this stretch.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Posts game-high 24 points

    Gordon totaled 24 points (8-17 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 7-7 FT), seven assists and two steals in 34 minutes during Saturday's 117-114 win over the Pistons.

    Gorden couldn't find his shooting touch from beyond the arc, but he still managed to lead the game in scoring with his 17 attempts from the field. He was able to rebound nicely from his last performance, when he was held to only nine points over 31 minutes Wednesday against the Wizards.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Starting Saturday

    Gordon (knee) will start Saturday at Detroit, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Gordon sat out the tail end of a back-to-back Thursday night but will be back with the first unit for Saturday's tilt. He is joined by Daishen Nix, Kenyon Martin, Tari Eason and Jabari Smith in the starting lineup.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Starting Saturday

    Eason will enter the first unit for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Eason will make his third start of the season with Jalen Green (calf), Kevin Porter (foot) and Alperen Sengun (illness) sidelined. In his previous two starts, Eason averaged 12.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 blocks across 26.4 minutes and should be considered a streaming option Saturday.

  • Rockets' Daishen Nix: Starting Saturday

    Nix will start Saturday's game against the Pistons, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Nix will make his second start of the season with the Rockets down Kevin Porter (foot), Jalen Green (calf) and Alperen Sengun (illness). In his prior start, Nix played 36 minutes but struggled, posting one point, one rebound, two assists, one steal and four turnovers.

  • Rockets' Josh Christopher: Shifts back to bench

    Christopher will return to the second unit for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Christopher saw his first start of the season Thursday in place of Eric Gordon (knee) but played just 19 minutes and scored seven points. With Gordon back in action Saturday, Christopher will be relegated to his typical bench role.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Out Saturday

    Sengun (illness) is out Saturday against the Pistons, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    It will be a bit of a skeleton crew for Houston against Detroit, as Sengun, Jalen Green (calf) and Kevin Porter (foot) are all sidelined. In the frontcourt, more minutes should be available for Bruno Fernando, Tari Eason and Usman Garuba.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Now questionable

    Sengun is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Pistons due to a non-COVID illness, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Sengun is a late addition to the injury report with an illness, which does not bode well for his availability Saturday. If he were to miss, Bruno Fernando and Usman Garuba would see expanded roles while Jabari Smith could see more action at the five.

  • Rockets' Eric Gordon: Not on injury report

    Gordon (knee) is not listed on the injury report for Saturday's tilt against the Pistons.

    The veteran sat out on the second night of a back-to-back Thursday but will return to the rotation Saturday. He could see increased usage with both Kevin Porter (foot) and Jalen Green (calf) out. In January, Gordon is averaging 14.7 points, 3.1 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 30.4 minutes.
