  • Rockets' P.J. Tucker: Set to start Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tucker will start Wednesday's game against Denver, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports. With Ryan Anderson (illness) almost certainly out of action, Tucker will slide in at the four alongside Clint Capela and Trevor Ariza in the frontcourt. Houston will also be without Eric Gordon (calf), but coach Mike D'Antoni confirmed that Chris Paul will be available for close to 30 minutes. Expect Tucker, as well as Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, to see an elevated workload Wednesday.

  • Tucker had three points (1-6 FG, 1-6 3Pt), eight rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 98-90 loss to the Grizzlies. Tucker hasn't been able to match his scoring output from opening night, during which he posted 20 points (on six-of-nine shooting) in a win over the Warriors. However, the veteran forward continues to see just under 30 minutes off the bench for the Rockets, doing the dirty work and playing tough defense inside and out. Admirable as his efforts are, they don't always show up in the box score. Unless you're desperate for rebounds and hustle stats, there's probably a better option on the waiver wire than Tucker.

  • Rockets' P.J. Tucker: Goes scoreless despite start
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tucker tallied zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four steals, three rebounds and three assists across 24 minutes during a 144-82 win over the Shanghai Sharks on Thursday. Tucker got the start with Ryan Anderson (hip) sidelined but failed to score in the process. He did contribute in other areas, and the four steals were excellent. He wasn't exactly looking for his shot as he just attempted two field goals. For Tucker to have much value, he will need to at least score a little bit.

  • Tucker will enter the starting five for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Shanghai Sharks, Rockets play-by-play announcer Craig Ackerman reports. After dealing with a hamstring injury last week, Tucker made his preseason debut against the Thunder on Tuesday, coming off the bench for five points (2-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks over 23 minutes. With Ryan Anderson (hip) getting the night off, Tucker will benefit with a promotion to the top unit, though he should head back to the bench by the time the regular season rolls around, so don't look too much into Thursday's lineup.

  • Rockets' P.J. Tucker: Cleared to practice Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tucker (hamstring) was a full participant in Sunday's practice, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Tucker has been dealing with a strained hamstring the last week or so, but as expected, he was able to take part in the entirety of Sunday's practice. That should mean Tucker is cleared for Tuesday's preseason game against the Thunder, so look for him to take on his role as one of the team's top reserves.
