  • Kenny Wooten: Slow night in return

    Wooten (illness) attempted only one shot and scored just two points (1-1 FG) to go along with three rebounds, an assist, a block and a steal over 19 minutes in Wednesday's game versus Long Island.

    Wooten isn't a particularly huge scorer for 905, averaging just 4.8 points per game, so his minimal scoring isn't of particular concern. He also averages just 15.6 minutes per contest, so the previous illness doesn't appear to have any lingering effects.

    Wooten tallied four points (1-3 FG, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, three blocks and a steal over 15 minutes Friday versus Westchester.

  • Rockets' Kenny Wooten: Claimed by Rockets

    Wooten, a former two-way player for the Knicks, was claimed off of waivers by the Rockets on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The 22-year-old forward has yet to see NBA action since going undrafted in 2019 out of Oregon. He played in the G League last season for the Westchester Knicks, where he averaged 7.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.6 blocks and 1.3 assists. His strong presence around the basket led to him being named to the 2019-20 G League All-Defensive Team. Wooten is unlikely to make any sort of legitimate impact this season and should only be targeted in the absolute deepest dynasty formats.
