Dekker (wrist) is practicing Friday and says he will be available for Monday's Game 1 battle with the Spurs, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Dekker will practice fully for the first time since fracturing his hand in early April, and while the team has yet to comment on his availability, the young forward appears eager to play in the second-round series. The second-year man has averaged just over 18 minutes per game on the year, solidifying himself as a key cog in the rotation behind starters Ryan Anderson and Trevor Ariza. However, he may see less action if cleared to play in Game 1, as he may be a tad rusty after missing the past two months. Look for more updates on his status to come over the weekend.
Williams was assigned Thursday to the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
The Vipers are currently fighting for a D-League championship, with Thursday marking the final game of the series. Williams will head down looking to help secure the trophy, but should be recalled shortly after to rejoin the Rockets for their own playoff run. That said, Williams didn't play a minute in the final four games of the Rockets' first-round matchup with the Thunder and is nothing more than emergency depth off the bench.
Taylor was recalled from the D-League on Thursday.
It's somewhat of an odd decision considering the Rio Grande Valley Vipers play for the D-League championship on Thursday night, but the Rockets apparently want to have Taylor present for a practice or team function. Don't expect the former Texas standout to be a factor for Houston throughout the postseason.
Beverley scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added eight rebounds, three assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Tuesday's Game 5 105-99 win over the Thunder.
After starting the series with two good offensive games, Beverley struggled with his shot in Games 3 and 4. He went a combined 2-19 (10.5%) from the floor in the contests, scoring a total of just seven points. He recovered in Game 5, outscoring the combination of all three of the other starters not named James Harden. Whether the Rockets face the Spurs or the Grizzlies in the next round, Beverley's defensive assignment will be easier than Russell Westbrook, the league leader in scoring.
Williams scored 22 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and added five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's Game 5 105-99 win over the Thunder.
Williams was the Rockets' second leading scorer on a night when James Harden struggled to connect from anywhere other than the free-throw line. Williams has played at least 30 minutes in three games straight, and has scored double-digit points in every game during the playoffs. As long as his minutes stay elevated, he is a strong option in daily formats.
