Hilario suffered a setback in his recovery from a calf strain and and has been ruled out for 3-to-4 weeks, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports. Hilario has been dealing with a calf strain since the start of October, and he appears to have done more damage to it in an effort to play at the start of the regular season. With Hilario and Marquese Chriss (ankle) both out, the Rockets have relied heavily on Clint Capela to play heavy minutes at center in competitive games, and the team will likely continue with that approach until either of his backups is medically cleared.
Nene (calf) is out Wednesday against the Jazz, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. Nene still needs some more rest to recover from his calf strain. With Maquese Chriss (ankle) also sidelined, Isaiah Hartenstein should see extra run as backup center.
Hilario is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz with a strained calf, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Hilario was reportedly available to play in Sunday's loss to the Clippers, but there now appears to be enough concern with his calf injury that the team wants him to undergo some additional testing. More on Hilario's status should be revealed once the Rockets get the MRI results back.
Hilario (calf) is in uniform and available to play in Sunday's game against the Clippers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Hilario was originally listed as out, but it looks like he is now active Sunday in what may be an in-case-of-emergency situation. Don't expect Hilario to play many, if any, minutes in Sunday's road contest.
Hilario (calf) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Clippers. Hilario is still dealing with calf soreness and will not suit up for Sunday's contest as a result. His absence shouldn't have too much of an impact on the Rockets' rotation, and his next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Jazz.
