Rockets' Nene Hilario: Loses out on starting center role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni announced Tuesday that Hilario would come off the bench to begin the season, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Rockets labeled the starting center role as a competition heading into training camp, but there was never really any momentum to start Hilario, a 34-year-old with an extensive injury history, over the 22-year-old Clint Capela, who profiles as a superior athlete and shot blocker. When he was healthy enough to play last season with the Wizards, Hilario showed that he can still hold his own on the defensive end while providing some useful scoring on post-ups, but at this point in his career, he's not capable of giving the Rockets much more than 20-to-25 minutes per game. As such, Capela offers more overall fantasy upside of the two players based on what he's capable of providing in the rebounds and blocks categories.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Will open season as starting center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela will start at center in the Rockets' season opener Wednesday against the Lakers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This was one of the least suspenseful job battles of the preseason, as Capela, a springy, active defender was always viewed as the favorite to garner the starting nod over the injury-prone Nene Hilario, who likely can't be counted on to play much more than 20 minutes per game at this stage of his career. The Rockets will still likely lean on Hilario fairly liberally by necessity, given Capela's tendency to rack up fouls, but the 22-year-old should still be in line for 25-plus minutes per night when he can avoid whistles.

Rockets' Patrick Beverley: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beverley (knee) underwent successful surgery on Tuesday and is expected to be out three weeks, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.

Beverley will begin the season on the bench as he nurses his knee after undergoing arthroscopic surgery. With Pablo Prigioni's surprise release earlier in the week, Tyler Ennis will be the main backup behind James Harden, who is taking over point guard responsibilities this season under new head coach Mike D'Antoni. Look for Beverley's injury to be reassessed in a couple weeks.

Rockets' Eric Gordon: Will start at shooting guard to open season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon will open the season as the Rockets' starting shooting guard, ESPN.com's Calvin Watkins reports.

Patrick Beverley (knee) is set to miss the next four-to-six weeks, so the Rockets will go with a starting backcourt of James Harden and Gordon to begin the season. The two worked well alongside one another during the preseason, with Harden's skills off the dribble creating space for Gordon on the outside to knock down shots. It appears coach Mike D'Antoni likes the idea of using Harden as a full-time point guard, so even once Beverley is cleared to return, there's a decent chance Gordon will stick in the starting five alongside him. Gordon has had myriad health issues throughout his career, but after a healthy and effective preseason, his stock is on the rise heading into 2016-17.

Rockets' Bobby Brown: Makes final roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown has made the Rockets' final 15-man roster, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.

The 32-year-old has been all around the world, seeing time in the Turkish Basketball League, as well as the Chinese Basketball Association in recent years. Brown latched on with the Rockets during training camp and was able to impress with multiple strong showings throughout the preseason schedule, which will now give him the opportunity to stick on the final roster. He'll still struggle to see significant minutes on most nights while acting as a depth option at both point guard and shooting guard, making it unlikely he's able to produce consistent fantasy worthy numbers.
