Hilario (knee) is available for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports. Hilario has missed the last six games due to a knee injury, but his return Thursday will give the Rockets some much-needed depth in the frontcourt, especially with Trevor Ariza suspended for the next two contests. Hilario will likely take back the minutes Tarik Black has seen in his absence recently.
Hilario (knee) is listed as questionable in the Rockets' game notes for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves. Hilario did not travel with the team on its recent road trip and missed his sixth straight contest as a result. The Rockets will likely have an update on the big man by Thursday morning after shootaround. In his absence, Tarik Black has seen limited minutes off the bench with Clint Capela, Ryan Anderson and P.J. Tucker have handle majority of the frontcourt minutes.
Head coach Mike D'Antoni said Hilario (knee) will not travel with the Rockets on their upcoming road trip, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. As a result of Hilario not making the trip, it appears the veteran will miss a fifth and sixth game -- Friday against the Suns and Monday against the Clippers -- as he continues to work his way back from a bruised right knee. Tarik Black (eye) is also expected to miss Friday's game, so look for Clint Capela, Ryan Anderson and P.J. Tucker to see the majority of minutes in Houston's frontcourt.
Hilario (knee) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers. Hilario will miss his fourth consecutive contest with the bruised right knee and is seemingly considered day-to-day with the injury. His absence opens up more time on the second unit for Tarik Black, who is averaging 5.0 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game over the Rockets' last three contests.
Hilario (knee) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Bulls. Hilario is slated to miss a third straight game, as the Rockets continue to take a cautious approach with their veteran big man. It's still considered a bruise, so it doesn't appear to be anything overly serious and there's a reasonable chance he's ultimately back for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers. For now, consider him questionable for that contest and in Hilario's place Monday, look for Tarik Black to pick up a few extra minutes off the bench.
