Rockets' Ty Lawson: Logs DNP Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ty Lawson (coach's decision) failed to take the court in Sunday's win over the Knicks.

After being dropped from his starting role last week, Lawson fell out of the rotation entirely Sunday, failing to play for the first time this season. A healthy Patrick Beverley will continue to start at point guard for the Houston Rockets and dominate the minutes, while Jason Terry appears to have eclipsed Lawson as the top backup option. Lawson has struggled with his shot all season long and is sitting on a 32.5 percent mark from the field over his 16 games, and it doesn't look as though he'll see many opportunities in the near future to dramatically improve in that regard. Those in shallower or mid-sized leagues can safely cut bait with Lawson, and with no guarantee that he'll reclaim decent minutes at any point this season, deep leaguers might want to start assessing other options as well.

Rockets' Terrence Jones: Limited to 25 minutes Sunday in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Terrence Jones , who has assumed a bench role in the Houston Rockets ' last two games, saw 25 minutes in Sunday's overtime win over the Knicks, providing eight points (2-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, an assist, and a block.

Meanwhile, the player who replaced Jones as the Rockets' starting power forward, Clint Capela, contributed 18 points, 11 rebounds, and three steals while shooting 7-for-11 from the field in the victory. Though Capela lacks the ability to knock down long-range shots like Jones does, his greater size and excellent athleticism make him an imposing complement to Dwight Howard, which may encourage interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff to keep him in a starting role. While Jones figures to see more run when the Rockets face small-ball oriented squads, Capela should see the greater share of minutes more often than not for the games to come, a development that will hinder Jones' fantasy value.

Rockets' Marcus Thornton: Scores 18 off bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marcus Thornton scored 18 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and added an assist and a steal over 21 minutes in Sunday's overtime win over the Knicks.

Thornton was back to providing the instant offense he'd previously delivered in a starting role earlier this season, but the 21 minutes he received represents close to the maximum that he'll get off the bench now that the Houston Rockets are relatively healthy in the backcourt. As a result, double-digit scoring performances might not trickle in with much consistency, making Thornton unworthy of a roster spot in most formats.

Rockets' James Harden: Scores 26, adds nine assists, seven boards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James Harden scored 26 points (10-28 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 6-10 FT) to go along with nine assists, seven rebounds, and two steals over 45 minutes in Sunday's overtime win over the Knicks.

The 26-point effort is a little disappointing after Harden combined for 90 points over the last two games, but the near-triple-double and low turnover total (two) resulted in another appetizing line for the star shooting guard. His playing time is beginning to creep up while the Houston Rockets lean heavily on him to claw their way back into the Western Conference playoff picture, but it doesn't appear coach J.B. Bickerstaff is inclined to rest Harden at all, even with the second half of a back-to-back set looming Monday in Detroit. Over his last five games, Harden is averaging 40 minutes and churning out 32.4 points (on 46.4 percent shooting), 7.4 assists, 6.8 rebounds, three treys, two steals, one block, and 4.8 turnovers.

Rockets' Jason Terry: Moves to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jason Terry has come off the bench in both of the Houston Rockets ' last two games.

Patrick Beverley is back to full health after missing five games with an ankle injury, and has since taken over the starting point guard job, playing 30-plus minutes in each of the last two games. Terry was never viewed as a permanent solution at the position, but had received run as a starter for a handful of games after the struggling Ty Lawson proved to be an ill-suited running mate for James Harden. Quite surprisingly, Terry saw 20 minutes off the bench in Sunday's overtime win over the Knicks and scored seven points (2-4 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go with three steals, while Lawson went unused entirely. Even at his advancing age, Terry remains a three-point shooting threat, which may result in him playing time ahead of Lawson until the latter shows some semblance of productivity in a limited role.
