Dekker will be recalled from the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers in advance of the Rockets' game Monday against the Bucks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Dekker, a former Wisconsin standout, could get the chance to see the floor with the Rockets for the first time since Nov. 6 in his return to his home state. He has spent much of his rookie season recovering from back surgery, but resumed playing with Rio Grande Valley earlier this month. Dekker has averaged 10.6 points and 5.4 rebounds over 21.2 minutes during his five appearances with the D-League squad, but he figures to assume a much more minimal role with the Rockets. He ranks behind Trevor Ariza and Corey Brewer on the team's depth chart at small forward.
