Rockets' Clint Capela: Notches 15 off the bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela provided 15 points, (7-8 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and three blocks over 19 minutes in Thursday's 129-99 victory over the Pelicans.

Though the Rockets started Nene, it appears obvious that coach Mike D'Antoni prefers seeing Capela off the bench in lieu of Montrezl Harrell. Keep an eye on this situation as the new-look Rockets takes shape.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Steals show in Cousins, Davis unveiling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams tallied 27 points (9-16 FG, 7-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Thursday's 129-99 win over the Pelicans.

With James Harden only posting 13 points and 14 assists Thursday, this box score solidifies Williams' sixth man status, and he simply couldn't have a better showing. Thr Rockets will get this kind of production going forward if Harden continues dishing him the ball.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Won't play Thursday vs. Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams won't be available to play in Thursday's game against the Pelicans, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Williams was traded to the Rockets on Tuesday in exchange for Corey Brewer and a draft pick, but it appears the Rockets will give him some extra time to get settled in and will hold him out Thursday. The Rockets fully expect Williams to take part in practice Friday and then make his debut with the team on Saturday against the Timberwolves. With Williams sitting out and Brewer no longer in the fold, Eric Gordon will have to play a huge role off the bench, while Sam Dekker could also temporarily get some extra run.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Unlikely to make team debut Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is unlikely to make his Rockets debut Thursday against the Pelicans, ESPN.com's Calvin Watkins reports.

The Rockets acquired Williams from the Lakers late Tuesday in exchange for Corey Brewer and an unprotected 2017 first-round pick, but due to the timing of physical with his new team, it doesn't look like coach Mike D'Antoni is planning on having the veteran guard at his disposal right away. Look for Williams to instead make his Rockets debut against the Timberwolves on Saturday, when he's expected to combine with sixth man Eric Gordon to form a potent offensive backcourt duo on the second unit. With 18.6 points and 17.2 points per game, respectively, Williams and Gordon are the top two bench scorers in the NBA this season.
