Caboclo (knee) logged five minutes off the bench in Thursday's 135-105 win over the Warriors, finishing with zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two steals, one rebound and one block. Acquired from Memphis prior to the trade deadline, Caboclo made his Rockets debut in the team's first game out of the All-Star break after being sidelined for nearly five weeks with a bone bruise in his left knee. The 24-year-old might see his role grow as he becomes further removed from the injury, but in Thursday's contest, his only action came in the final 5:11 of the fourth quarter, when the Rockets were leading by 32. For the time being, the newly signed Jeff Green looks like he'll stick in the rotation ahead of Caboclo as the backup to starting center P.J. Tucker.
Caboclo (knee) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Thursday's game against the Warriors. Caboclo, who came over from Memphis at the trade deadline, has not played since Jan. 12, and he entered the All-Star break still nursing a bone bruise in his left knee. His removal from the injury report signals that he's healthy, but Caboclo is unlikely to be a part of the Rockets' rotation.
Caboclo (knee) said Sunday that he expects to available for the Rockets when the team reconvenes following the All-Star break, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Though Caboclo will remain unavailable when the Rockets wrap up their first-half schedule Tuesday versus Boston, the 24-year-old looks like he could be ready to make his team debut as soon as Feb. 20 at Golden State. Caboclo has been sidelined since mid-January with a bone bruise in his hyperextended left knee, but he was able to complete an on-court workout Sunday. The newly acquired big man could get a look as a small-ball center for Houston, though he likely wouldn't be in store for major minutes behind starter P.J. Tucker.
Caboclo (knee) was dealt Thursday from the Grizzlies to the Rockets in exchange for Jordan Bell, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The teams also exchanged future second-round picks in the deal. Before he was diagnosed with a bone bruise in his left knee in mid-January, Caboclo had seen a minimal role with the Grizzlies this season, appearing in 22 games and averaging 2.8 points and 2.0 rebounds in 8.7 minutes. His outlook won't change much with Houston once he's cleared to play again, likely at some point shortly after the All-Star break.
Cabocle was diagnosed with a bone bruise on his left knee and will miss the next 4-to-6 weeks. The 24-year-old has been sidelined since hyperextending his left knee Monday versus the Santa Cruz Warriors, and he'll now face an extended absence due to the injury. Caboclo is averaging 8.7 minutes in 22 appearances with the Grizzlies this season, but he hasn't seen significant playing time since an eight-game stretch in the first half of December.
