  • Kenny Wooten: Sees 15 minutes in win

    Wooten offered two points, six rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots in Monday's 110-100 win at Westchester.

    Wooten has averaged 15.0 minutes of run in seven games this season for Maine. At 6-foot-9, he is one of the few big men on the Maine Celtics' roster. Still, that hasn't led to many minutes, as Maine prefers to go small and push the pace. For the season, Wooten has averaged 3.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocked shots per game.

  • 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.
