Faried (personal) is available for Friday's Game 6 matchup with the Warriors, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Faried missed Wednesday's Game 5 loss for personal reasons. He was a healthy scratch the previous two games, but did log five minutes off the bench in Game 2.
Faried is listed as inactive due to personal reasons for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Warriors, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. Faried is slated to miss Wednesday's game due to personal reason. While it's unclear what exactly Faried's dealing with, his absence won't have much of an impact on the Rockets rotations considering he's managed just five minutes of run so far in Round 2.
Faried managed 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and six rebounds in 16 minutes during Sunday's 122-90 victory over Utah. Faried saw a decent amount of playing time in Game 1 of the Rockets series against the Jazz, taking advantage of the blowout. He missed only one field-goal on his way to 11 points, adding six boards in 16 minutes. He will likely see less action if and when the games become closer but he has certainly been a solid pickup for the Rockets and has to be loving life after being out of the rotation in Brooklyn earlier in the season.
Faried ended with 12 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 130-105 victory over the Kings. Faried returned after missing three straight games with a knee injury, recording 12 points and 11 rebounds in 21 minutes. It was initially thought Faried would miss Tuesday's game to ensure his availability for Wednesday. Surprisingly, Faried was in action and rewarded those owners who may have streamed him in. Given the reports, there is a decent chance he misses Wednesday's game against the Clippers with Nene likely to replace him in the lineup.
Faried (knee) is not expected to play Tuesday against the Kings, Adam Spolane of SportsRadio 610 in Houston reports. The Rockets have been rather vague regarding Faried's status, but coach Mike D'Antoni commented Monday that he expects to have Nene available Tuesday night, while Faried will be back for Wednesday's game against the Clippers. Neither player is listed on the team's official injury report, however.
