Tate recorded 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and an assist across 32 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Nets. Tate returned to the starting lineup after a two-game stint off the bench and responded with his first double-double of the season. Tate can't be trusted for sustained scoring production on a nightly basis, but he's been doing a good job of late and has scored at least 10 points in five of the team's last eight games.
Tate will start Wednesday's game against the Nets, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. The 25-year-old came off the bench the past two games but will return to the lineup Wednesday. Tate is averaging 10.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 28.7 minutes as a starter this season.
Tate registered five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 30 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss against the Cavaliers. Tate moved to the bench recently and while he was unable to muster a lot of offense, he did record multiple tallies in three categories while making an impact across the board. That said, these numbers won't be enough to make him a reliable asset in most fantasy formats, especially now that he's expected to come off the bench for the foreseeable future.
Tate totaled 14 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 133-84 loss to the Grizzlies. Tate moved back to the bench as the Rockets attempted to combat the size of the Memphis frontcourt. The maneuver clearly failed given the Grizzlies' 49-point margin of victory, so Tate could make his return to the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Cavaliers. He has been a sneaky free-agent pickup for the Rockets, and despite a couple of bumps in the road, Tate remains a justifiable roster option in 12-team leagues.
Tate isn't starting Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. Tate had started in each of the last 19 games for the Rockets, but he'll come off the bench in Sunday's matchup. Justin Patton will take his place in the starting five against Memphis.
