K.J. McDaniels was assigned to the D-League on Saturday, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.
McDaniels was recalled by the Houston Rockets earlier in the week to add depth, and despite Terrence Jones' likely absence through the All-Star break, he'll head back down to the D-League for the time being.
K.J. McDaniels was recalled from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Monday.
McDaniels was called up by the Houston Rockets just a few days earlier, only to be quickly sent back to the D-League to see some added court time. He's now back with the Rockets, but finding minutes in the NBA has been a major problem for McDaniels this season. He's made only 15 appearances and is averaging 3.9 minutes.
K.J. McDaniels was recalled from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Friday.
In his latest game with the Vipers on Thursday, McDaniels finished with 16 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and six assists over 36 minutes. The second-year pro out of Clemson has seen action in just 15 games with the Houston Rockets this year, so despite being recalled, he'll likely struggle to see the court.
K.J. McDaniels was sent down to the Houston Rockets ' D-League affiliate on Saturday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McDaniels was a DNP-Coach's Decision for Friday's game against Milwaukee and has been sent down to the D-League along with rookie Montrezl Harrell. This marks McDaniels' fifth stint with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers this season.
K.J. McDaniels played only one minute, but committed five fouls in Wednesday's 123-114 loss to the Pistons.
McDaniels and rookie Montrezl Harrell (nine minutes, five fouls) were interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff's designated hackers for the night, as the Houston Rockets actively attempted to neutralize Pistons center Andre Drummond by sending him to the free-throw line. The strategy worked to an extent -- Drummond missed an NBA-record 23 free throws out of his 36 attempts -- but the rest of the Pistons went 22-of-23 from the charity stripe to beat the Rockets in comfortable fashion.
