Rockets' K.J. McDaniels: Drops out of rotation Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDaniels (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 109-103 loss to the Heat on Tuesday.

McDaniels hasn't been a regular member of the Rockets' rotation since mid-November, so it doesn't come as much surprise that he failed to see the court in a close game Tuesday, even after putting up seven points in six minutes during garbage time of Sunday's blowout win over the Nets. It will likely take a couple injuries to the Rockets' wing corps before McDaniels receives extended minutes on a regular basis.

Rockets' K.J. McDaniels: Doesn't play in fifth straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDaniels (coach's decision) didn't see the court in Sunday's 130-114 win over the Trail Blazers.

Since Patrick Beverley (knee) returned from injury Nov. 17 against the Trail Blazers, coach Mike D'Antoni has shortened his rotation over the last six games, as Beverley has effectively absorbed the playing time of McDaniels and Tyler Ennis. Aside from logging five minutes in that Nov. 17 game, McDaniels hasn't seen the floor during that six-game span. So long as the roster remains at full strength, McDaniels figures to remain outside of the rotation.

Rockets' K.J. McDaniels: Leads bench with 13 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDaniels scored 13 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with two rebounds and one block across 19 minutes in Saturday's 112-97 loss to the Hawks.

After averaging only 6.4 minutes per game across 37 appearances last season, McDaniels has been a mainstay in coach Mike D'Antoni's rotation through the first six games of 2016-17. He's typically seeing between 15 and 20 minutes, and starting small forward Trevor Ariza's slow start to the campaign could allow McDaniels to take on even more responsibilities as the season progresses. McDaniels doesn't warrant ownership in most deeper leagues just yet, but it's worthwhile to track the athletic swingman's minutes in subsequent games.

Rockets' K.J. McDaniels: Gets 11 points in 20 minutes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McDaniels contributed 11 points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds and two blocks across 20 minutes in Sunday's 123-117 preseason win over the Pelicans in an exhibition played in Shanghai, China.

The fact that McDaniels played 20 minutes is arguably just as notable as his strong statistical production. Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni deployed something resembling a regular-season rotation in the exhibition, using only 10 players and handing the starters a full workload. The Rockets were playing without Patrick Beverley (knee), who would likely bump a player from the rotation once he returns from the injury, but the athletic McDaniels may have a more compelling case to hold down a role than aging veterans Pablo Prigioni and Corey Brewer, neither of whom provided much production Sunday.

Rockets' K.J. McDaniels: Leads Houston in scoring throughout summer league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDaniels combined for 16 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in five Las Vegas Summer League contests.

While McDaniels may not have been the most efficient Houston player this summer, he did serve as the Rockets' leading scorer throughout summer league play. Last season, however, the two-year vet tallied just 2.4 points per contest. McDaniels has certainly demonstrated his ability to produce at the NBA level, but with Houston's depth at the guard slot it is difficult to project exactly how he fairs. With James Harden and Eric Gordon figuring to dominate the ball offensively, McDaniels may be of little help come October.
