  • Black had 13 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, and two blocks in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 129-113 loss to the Raptors. Black finished with season highs in scoring, boards, and minutes while posting two rejections for the third time in 10 appearances. Nene Hilario sat out due to a foot sprain, leaving Clint Capela's primary backup center day-to-day. As a result, Black could be a decent dart throw for Thursday's matchup with the Suns.

  • Black (hip) finished Saturday's game against the Grizzlies with five points (1-1 FG, 3-3 FT) and two rebounds across three minutes. Black was questionable going into Saturday's contest with a hip injury, though he ended up playing just three minutes, so coach Mike D'Antoni may have tried to limit his minutes a bit. That begin said, Black hasn't see more than 13 minutes off the bench this season and likely needs an injury to occur in order for him to be a relevant fantasy option. Now that he's over his hip injury, look for him to serve as dept at center behind both Clint Capela and Nene Hilario.

  • Rockets' Tarik Black: Questionable Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Black (hip) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Jonathan Feigan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Black was questionable heading into Friday's game against the Hornets as well, but ultimately took the court. The big man had a rough night, as he racked up five fouls in just nine minutes during the outing. Even if he does suit up Saturday, his fringe-rotational-role does not inspire much intrigue in any fantasy format.

  • Black (hip) racked up five fouls across just nine minutes in Friday's victory over the Hornets. Black, who was probable heading into the contest, was in line for a bigger role with Nene Hilario sidelined. However, both Black and starting center Clint Capella were frequently sent to the bench early due to foul trouble. As a result, the Rockets were forced to use some unconventional lineups. Black remains a fringe rotational player at best.

  • Rockets' Tarik Black: Upgraded to probable
    By RotoWire Staff

    Black (hip) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game against the Hornets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. It looks like Black's hip issue was a minor one, as he should be ready to go off the bench in Friday's contest. Black will once again serve as the primary backup center for the Rockets, but he only played 12 minutes in that role in Houston's win over the 76ers on Wednesday.
