  • Nwaba didn't play in Monday's 101-90 loss to the Cavaliers due to a wrist injury, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports. Though Nwaba didn't appear on the Rockets' injury report heading into Monday's contest, head coach Stephen Silas said afterward that the swingman injured his wrist on a dunk attempt in Sunday's blowout loss to the Grizzlies. Nwaba was still present on the bench for the second half of the back-to-back set, but he was only available in an emergency. Nwaba can be considered day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Nets, the Rockets' final game before the All-Star break.

  • Nwaba scored 22 points (9-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-5FT) to go along with nine rebounds, two assists and two steals across 27 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bulls. Nwaba matched a career-high with 22 points and also reached 20 points for the first time this season. He's stepped his production up considerably in the absence of Victor Oladipo (foot), averaging 14.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks across four games. While Nwaba isn't likely to replicate this statistical output regularly, he should continue to see an increased role so long as Oladipo is sidelined.

  • Nwaba will come off the bench Wednesday at Philadelphia, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. The 28-year-old had 19 points and 11 rebounds in Monday's spot start, but he'll head back to the bench with Eric Gordon (groin) returning to action Wednesday. Nwaba should still see plenty of minutes since Victor Oladipo (foot) and P.J. Tucker (quadriceps) are still sidelined.

  • Nwaba totaled 19 points (7-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 11 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block across 41 minutes Monday in the Rockets' 131-119 loss to the Wizards. With several key Rockets players missing Monday's game, Nwaba saw plenty of time on the court and didn't disappoint. His 11 rebounds tied a career high, while his 41 minutes were a new personal best. Though he just missed out on his first 20-point performance of the season, Nwaba has now scored in double figures for the first time since late January.
