Rockets' James Harden: Will play through ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harden rolled his ankle during Game 3 against the Thunder, but will continue to play through it moving forward, Calvin Watkins of reports. "Got some treatment and I'll be ready to go tomorrow," Harden said. "It's the playoffs, everybody is banged up so you just got to find a way to fight through it and find a way to help your teammates win games."

The ankle injury may have been a big reason for Harden's struggles in Game 4, as he shot just 5-of-16 from the field for 16 points, marking by far his lowest scoring output of the playoffs thus far. That said, Harden is fully expected to continue to play through the ankle injury, so he should be in the starting lineup as usual ahead of Tuesday's Game 5. While he should see a full complement of minutes, the injury is something to consider for DFS purposes, as it clearly hampered Harden's effectiveness in Game 4.

Rockets' Nene Hilario: Posts playoff career-high 28 points in Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilario had 28 points (12-12 FG, 4-7 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 25 minutes during Sunday's 113-109 win against the Thunder in Game 4.

Hilario had more points in Game 4 than he did in the first three games of the first round, and this was his first double-double since November of 2015. Hilario also finished with a playoff career high in scoring, and the 34-year-old veteran came up huge on a day when Rockets' starting center Clint Capela was really struggling.

Rockets' Patrick Beverley: Totals just one point in Game 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beverley posted one point (0-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes during a 115-113 loss to the Thunder on Friday.

Beverley had by far his worst game of the series as he totaled just one point before fouling out in 25 minutes in the loss. He had scored a combined total of 36 points in the first two games of the series, and that type of performance should be expected in the remaining game of the series. Expect him to bounce back in the next one.

Rockets' James Harden: Drops 44 points in Game 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harden tallied 44 points (11-21 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 18-18 FT), six rebounds, six assists and one block across 38 minutes during a 115-113 loss to the Thunder on Friday.

Harden exceeded 35 points for the third straight time to open up his playoff campaign as he netted his first 40-point game of these playoffs. He is continuing to get to the free throw line with absurd success, as he's gone a combined 36-of-38 from the foul line in the last two games. Friday's game marked the first time so far this series that Harden has shot at least 50 percent from the field.

Rockets' Lou Williams: Lights out from three Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding two assists, one rebound and one steal across 21 minutes in Wednesday's 115-111 victory over the Thunder in Game 2.

Williams' efficiency resulted in the third-highest point total on the team in just over 20 minutes of action Wednesday night. He has made just six of his last 45 threes over his last nine appearances, so his 75 percent accuracy in Game 2 definitely was a good sign for Rockets fans. If Williams can find his shot, he should see a plethora of opportunities with most of the attention being put towards stopping James Harden.
