Rockets' Clint Capela: Will have minutes restriction, won't start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela will come off the bench and be on a minutes restrictions in Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Calvin Watkins of ESPN reports.

Capela started in Tuesday night's game against the Heat, but he ended up playing just nine minutes. It looks like the big man will have a similar dose Wednesday, as Montrezl Harrell will start once again at center and likely see a heavy dose of minutes in the frontcourt.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Sees limited minutes Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (leg) failed to score a point Tuesday in his return to the lineup, missing all three of his field goal attempts while adding five rebounds, an assist and a block in nine minutes during a 109-103 loss to the Heat.

After missing 15 games with a leg injury, Capela understandably wasn't ready to assume a full workload. The Rockets are right back at it Wednesday, hosting the Bucks, and while the 22-year-old center should see more court time if his leg checks out OK after Tuesday's game, it could be a while yet before he's topping 20 minutes again.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Will start at center Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Capela (leg) will start at center for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

Montrezl Harrell was expected to remain the starter at center in Capela's first game back, but coach Mike D'Antoni made the call to go with Capela instead. However, despite working with the top unit, Capela very well could have his minutes limited after an extended absence, which could mean Harrell still sees a good chunk of playing time off the bench. Coach D'Antoni also recently reported that the Rockets would continue to change up their starting center depending on each individual matchup on a game-to-game basis, so Capela's start on Tuesday doesn't necessarily mean he'll be in that role for the forseeable future.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Will be available Tuesday vs. Heat
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Capela (leg) will be available Tuesday against the Heat, but it's uncertain whether he'll start or come off the bench, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Capela has been sidelined for the Rockets' past 15 games while recovering from a fractured fibula, but after returning to practice Monday and taking part in the team's shooatround Tuesday morning, he'll received clearance to return to the court. During his time on the sideline, the Rockets have been using a tandem of Montrezl Harrell and Nene Hilario at center, with Harrell making more of a splash of the two from a fantasy standpoint. During that 15-game stretch, Harrell has averaged 14.2 points (on 67.7% shooting), 4.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 blocks in 27.1 minutes per game, but his lack of size has made his role somewhat volatile from contest to contest. As such, it appears coach Mike D'Antoni plans to deploy his three centers based on matchups, according to Feigen, which likely means that one of the big men will be squeezed out of the rotation or marginalized on a nightly basis. Capela is the biggest difference maker of the three on the defensive end, but he was only averaging 21.1 minutes per game in December before suffering the leg injury, and may have a tough time exceeding that level of playing time now that Harrell has made a case for regular run. It will be worthwhile for fantasy owners of any of the three centers to track how the playing time shakes out at the position over the next several games.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Could return Tuesday or Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela (leg) is expected to return to practice on Monday, with the hope of being cleared for either Tuesday's game against the Heat or Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Capela has been sidelined since mid-December with a fractured left fibula and is fully expected to miss a 15th straight game on Sunday versus the Nets. However, he's now on the brink of a return and has been cleared to practice, so look for him to take the court for Monday's session. Depending on how his injury responds to the increase in activity, Capela is expected to be available for either Tuesday or Wednesday's game during the Rockets' upcoming back-to-back set, although we should hear another update on his status after Monday's practice. Once cleared, Capela's presence should mean a significant decrease in value for both Montrezl Harrell and Nene Hilario.
