Hilario will sit out Thursday's game against the Warriors for rest, but will return to action Friday against the Nuggets, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.

The Rockets are heading into another back-to-back set, so they'll give the 34-year-old big man the night off Thursday in order to limit his workload. Hilario's absence will allow Montrezl Harrell to enter the rotation as starting center Clint Capela's main backup.
