Rockets' Dillon Brooks: Dealing with illness
Brooks is questionable for Monday's game against the Spurs due to an illness.
Brooks was added to the injury report with a questionable designation due to an illness. This could be Brooks' first missed game of the season, which would see Amen Thompson, Jae'Sean Tate and Aaron Holiday step into bigger roles.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Tari Eason: Iffy for Monday
Eason is questionable for Monday's game against the Spurs due to left lower leg soreness.
Eason has been dealing with a left lower leg injury throughout the season, but he has missed just one game over his last 13, which bodes well for his chances to suit up on Monday. Eason is averaging 6.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.1 blocks in 18.9 minutes per game over his last seven appearances.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jock Landale: Available Monday
Landale is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Spurs.
Landale missed the last two games due to an illness but will make his return on Monday against San Antonio. Landale doesn't figure to see significant playing time behind Alperen Sengun.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Amen Thompson: Off injury report
Thompson is no longer listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Spurs.
Thompson hasn't played for the Rockets since Nov. 1 due to an ankle injury but he was recalled from the team's G-League affiliate on Saturday and seems to be slated to make his return to NBA action. The rookie lottery pick will serve as a reserve wing for the near future but he could be in line for a decent workload if Dillon Brooks (illness) and Tari Eason (lower leg) are unable to go....

Rockets' Amen Thompson: Recalled to NBA
The Rockets recalled Thompson (ankle) from the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the G League on Saturday, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
Thompson last saw NBA action Nov. 1 before suffering a right ankle sprain. However, the rookie guard played for the Vipers on Wednesday and appears set to make his return to the Rockets. Thompson's next chance to suit up will be Monday's matchup with San Antonio.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jeff Green: Sees extended minutes in win
Green amassed five points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 27 minutes during Friday's 114-106 victory over the Nuggets.
Green was back in the lineup after missing the previous game due to personal reasons, playing a season-high 27 minutes. Although he didn't do much from a production standpoint, his in-depth knowledge of the Nuggets may have played a part in his expanded role. Given he is outside the top 300 in standard leagues this season, there is no reason to think this turns into anything tangible.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jalen Green: Strong offensive showing
Green closed Friday's 114-106 victory over the Nuggets with 25 points (8-17 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 7-9 FT), three rebounds and one assist over 35 minutes.
Green scored at least 20 points for just the second time in the past five games, helping the Rockets to an impressive road victory. He currently sits outside the top 200 in nine-category leagues, thanks largely to the fact he is shooting just 42.7 percent from the field, adding 0.5 steals per game. He remains a must-roster player but is better suited for points leagues and those punting percentages.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Fred VanVleet: Scores season-high 26 points
VanVleet finished Friday's 114-106 victory over the Nuggets with 26 points (6-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 10-13 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one block across 40 minutes.
VanVleet let his scoring do the talking Friday, leading the way with a team-high 26 points, including four three-pointers. While it has been a strong season for VanVleet, his defensive numbers are a little concerning. Currently, he is averaging just 0.8 steals per game, well below what he has put up in the past. If he can get back to at least 1.2 swipes per game, he should be able to push for another top-30 season.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jock Landale: Won't face Denver
Landale (illness) is out for Friday's game against the Nuggets.
Landale missed Wednesday's game against the Thunder with an illness, and that will keep him sidelined for a second straight contest. Even if he's available, Landale shouldn't play much of a role in fantasy since he's little more than the backup of a high-usage center in Alperen Sengun. Landale's next chance to play will come against the Spurs on Monday.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Amen Thompson: Remains out Friday
Thompson (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nuggets.
Thompson hasn't played for the Rockets since the beginning of November due to a Grade 2 right ankle sprain and hasn't been cleared to return to action for the parent club Friday. However, he remains on assignment with the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers, and he tallied 29 points, 16 rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and two blocks in 40 minutes while operating as a starter during an overtime loss Wednesday. Even though he'll likely need a few more days before rejoining Houston, the rookie looks ready to return imminently.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jeff Green: Not on injury report
Green (personal) is not listed in the injury report for Friday's game against the Nuggets.
Green missed Wednesday's game against the Thunder due to personal reasons, but the fact that he's absent from the injury report suggests he should be available to feature Friday. Even if that's the case, he's not expected to be a significant player in fantasy. He's averaging 5.9 points across 14.5 minutes per game off the bench this season.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jabari Smith: Grabs career-high 18 boards
Smith registered six points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 18 rebounds and one assist in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 110-101 win over the Thunder.
Smith dominated the glass Wednesday, hauling in a career-high 18 rebounds. Although he was quiet on the offensive end, Smith has been a much-improved player over the past two weeks, putting up borderline top-50 value in standard leagues. While this could be an opportunity to sell high, perhaps he is finally beginning to figure things out.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Reggie Bullock: Back in rotation Wednesday
Bullock closed with three points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT) over six minutes during Wednesday's 110-101 victory over the Thunder.
Bullock had three points in six minutes Wednesday, just the fourth time he has troubled the scorers all season. Despite providing the Rockets with a veteran piece off the bench, he has been used sparingly to this point. Even in starters' minutes, Bullock has never been a consistent producer. Working on that logic, he shouldn't be considered in any fantasy format.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Drops season-high 22 points
Holiday accumulated 22 points (8-13 FG, 6-7 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists and one steal over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 110-101 victory over the Thunder.
Holiday exploded off the bench, torching the Thunder for a season-high 22 points in 27 minutes. While this was certainly a fantastic performance, managers should not be fooled. Before Wednesday, he had scored in double digits only three times all season. Outside of being a speculative streaming option, Holiday has little sustainable fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jeff Green: Out with personal issues
Green won't play in Wednesday's game against the Thunder due to personal reasons, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.
Green was previously not listed on the Rockets' injury report, so his absence comes as a bit of a surprise. In his absence, Tari Eason and Reggie Bullock are the likely candidates to receive extra action. Green's next chance to play will come Friday at Denver.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Tari Eason: Cleared to play
Eason (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Eason missed the start of the campaign due to a stress fracture in his left leg but has been a key rotation piece since making his debut Nov. 8. Across 10 appearances, the second-year forward has averaged 6.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 17.9 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
