  • Nwaba registered 15 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), one rebound, one assist, one block and one steal over 14 minutes during Sunday's 130-105 loss to the Pelicans. Nwaba scored a season-high 15 points in the loss, highlighting just what a struggle it has been for him this season. In fact, he has scored in double-digits just six times, struggling to carve out a regular spot in the rotation. While the Rockets are likely to change up their rotation moving forward, it is unlikely they view Nwaba as a crucial piece of their future. Based on that fact, he is not a name to be monitoring outside of the deepest formats.

  • Nwaba will come off the bench Monday against Philadelphia, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports. Nwaba started the previous four contests amid some injuries and COVID-19 absences, but the Rockets will shake things up and go with Jae'Sean Tate and Garrison Mathews on the wing Monday, while Jalen Green and Eric Gordon still start in the backcourt. Nwaba is capable of occasionally popping for some defensive production but overall he's not much of a fantasy consideration.

  • Nwaba will start Monday's game against the Hornets, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 in Houston reports. With several players in the COVID protocols and both Jalen Green (rest) and Kevin Porter (hamstring) unavailable, the Rockets will go with a smaller lineup and turn to Nwaba at power forward alongside Christian Wood. Nwaba should be set for a jump in minutes, but there's not a ton of fantasy upside here.

  • Nwaba closed with nine points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 15 minutes during Wednesday's 126-106 loss to Milwaukee. Nwaba saw some additional playing time with the game result well and truly sealed by the final quarter. Despite a proven ability to at least flirt with 12-team value, Nwaba's role is simply not there at this point. Add to that the fact that he is not a part of their long-term plans, and you have a player who is unlikely to touch the fantasy landscape this season.

  • Nwaba (wrist) has agreed to a three-year, $15 million contract to stay with the Rockets, independent NBA writer Marc Stein reports. Nwaba underwent surgery on his wrist in March and is out indefinitely, but that didn't stop him from signing a three-year contract with the Rockets. In his first season with Houston, the 28-year-old averaged 9.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 22.6 minutes per game. Nwaba, when healthy, will have a significant role as an versatile defender off the bench even with talented players like Kevin Porter and 2021 No. 2 overall pick Jalen Green on the roster.
