Rockets' Dwight Howard ready for preseason opener on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard (suspension) said he is ready to play in Tuesday's preseason opener against the Memphis Grizzlies , Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports

Howard indicated he'd have no issues playing both ends of the Rockets' back-to-back set to kick off the preseason set, suggesting he has nothing to worry about on the health front. While it's possible that coach Kevin McHale will deploy Howard in both games, the Rockets do plan on reducing the star center's minutes this season in an effort to keep him on the court after a wide range of injuries limited him to 41 games in 2014-15.

Howard is slated to miss the first game of the regular season due to a suspension, but barring any preseason injury setbacks, he should be ready to make his debut Oct. 30 against the Golden State Warriors .

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas hasn't resumed running during training camp, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Motiejunas is still recovering from April back surgery and continues to await clearance for basketball-related activities. He was spotted jumping rope during Tuesday's team session, but a return to practice doesn't appear to be on the horizon quite yet.

Rockets' Donatas Motiejunas not ready for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas (back) won't be ready for the start of training camp, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.

Motiejunas had his 2014-15 season end in April when he underwent a lumbar microdiscetomy to alleviate pain in his lower back.

Expected to require 2-3 months to recover, his rehabilitation will instead extend into the initial days of training camp. It's unclear when he'll be cleared for contact, but his availability for the opener on Oct. 28 against the Nuggets is certainly in doubt.

Rockets clear Patrick Beverley to open season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rockets guard Patrick Beverley is ready for the upcoming campaign, after missing 26 games due to injury in 2014-15, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Beverley's injury-plagued season culminated with a torn ligament in his left wrist, keeping him on the sideline from late March through the end of the Western Conference finals on May 27.

Although he enters training camp with a clean bill of health, his starting role is in jeopardy due to the acquisition of Ty Lawson in the offseason.

Beverley's stature (6-foot-1, 180 pounds) doesn't lend itself to much, if any, work at shooting guard, meaning he'll likely spell Lawson when he requires a breather. As a result, Beverley may find it difficult to earn 30 minutes per game for the third consecutive season.
