Terry will move into the starting lineup Wednesday against Memphis, Calvin Watkins of ESPN reports. Terry moved into the starting five following the firing of Kevin McHale, and he's joined James Harden in the backcourt for the last three contests. That will continue Wednesday, as the Rockets continue to bring Ty Lawson off the bench. At age 38, Terry is primarily a spot-up shooter at this point in his career, so his value as a fantasy asset is rather limited.
Terry scored five points to go along with four rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes in Wednesday's win over Portland. Terry got his first first start of the season for the underperforming Houston team. Terry replaced Ty Lawson for the start and logged a season high 29 minutes. His performance was a bit lackluster, however, putting up low numbers, though his three assists and four rebounds were his season highs. Don't expect many big outbursts from Terry, even though he'll likely continue to see time on the court for the Rockets.
Terry will start Wednesday versus Portland, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. with the firing of Kevin McHale on Wednesday, it is not a surprise the team is altering its starting lineup. Terry will be replacing the struggling Ty Lawson at point guard. Terry is averaging 4.4 points, 0.6 rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 1.0 threes in 13 minutes per game so far this season.
Terry scored 19 points (6-10 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in a season-high 26 minutes off the bench during Saturday's loss to the Mavericks. The veteran guard came into the game with just 18 total points on the season in seven appearances, so while Terry is still capable of getting hot every now and then from three-point range, don't expect a repeat performance any time soon.
Free-agent guard Jason Terry has agreed to return to the Rockets next season, per Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com. Terry, who will be 38 next season, averaged 7 points, 1.9 assists and 1.6 rebounds per game for Houston last season.
