Houston Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas (back) has started running but said he remains without a return timetable, ESPN reports.
Motiejunas underwent back surgery in April and has faced a lengthy road to recovery. He's still a ways away from returning to game action, and at this point it appears a return for opening night may be close to out of the question.
Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones (ribs) will not play in Wednesday's preseason game.
Jones aggravated his rib injury during Tuesday's preseason game against the Memphis Grizzlies , so coach Kevin McHale said the team will give him the night off as the Rockets play their first back-to-back set of the year. Jones scored four points on 1-of-7 shooting to go with eight rebonds and two assists in 20 minutes Tuesday night.
Houston Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas (lower-back pain) sat out the Rockets' preseason opener Tuesday against the Memphis Grizzlies , Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The big man remains without a timetable to return to full practice as he works his way back from offseason surgery, but did make some strides Monday, when he was cleared to begin sprinting.
Motiejunas has been working out in on-court drills for about two weeks, and should receive another update on his condition in the days to come. Even in a best-case scenario, it seems likely that Motiejunas will sit out the majority of the Rockets' preseason contests, but the 25-year-old could be ready to play in the Oct. 28 regular-season opener.
Houston Rockets forward Montrezl Harrell missed Tuesday's preseason opener against the Memphis Grizzlies with a thigh bruise, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Rockets aren't deeming the injury anything serious and expect the second-round draft pick to return to preseason action before long. Despite being an undersized power forward at 6-foot-8, Harrell showcased plenty of ability as a rebounder, shot blocker, and finisher during a decorated college career at Louisville Cardinals , making him an intriguing prospect for the Rockets.
Even so, he could probably benefit from an extended stay in the D-League this season to better develop his perimeter game.
Houston Rockets forward Clint Capela (knee) grabbed eight rebounds and scored eight points (4-7 FG, 0-2 FT) in 27 minutes during Tuesday's preseason loss to the Memphis Grizzlies .
Knee tendinitis prevented Capela from taking the court during the summer league, but the second-year forward has shown no ill effects from the injury since training camp began.
Though the Rockies remain high on the 21-year-old's athleticism and high motor, which enabled him to haul in five boards and reel in two steals, Capela is still a very raw prospect. That was exemplified through his three turnovers, four fouls, and pair of free-throw misses, areas that he'll need to show improvement in before becoming a regular member of the Houston rotation.
