Hilario will decline his $3.8 million player option and become a free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Hilario has spent the past three seasons as a reserve center for the Rockets, though his role has declined due to age. He appeared in just 42 games last season, seeing 13.0 minutes. Still, he's proven to be a quality veteran presence who can be productive when he's out on the court.
Hilario (rest) will be available for Friday's game against the Spurs, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports. With back-to-back games Tuesday and Wednesday, the veteran center was left on the sideline to rest. He will now be available off the bench Friday night, where he will likely play his usual limited role.
Hilario will sit out Tuesday's game at Atlanta and Wednesday's matchup at Memphis to rest, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. With back-to-back games Tuesday and Wednesday, it appears as though the Rockets will be giving the veteran two straight nights off to rest. Behind Clint Cappella, Kenneth Faried will likely see an increased role off the bench to fill in for Hilario on Tuesday, as well Wednesday
Hilario (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the court in Friday's 108-102 win over the Suns. Hilario wasn't on the injury report after missing the last two tilts for rest purposes. Starting big man Clint Capela recorded a double-double in 33 minutes while Kenneth Faried received the remaining 15 minutes at center. As long as those two remain healthy, the 36-year-old Hilario can likely be avoided across all fantasy formats.
Hilario (rest) isn't on the injury report for Friday's game against Phoenix. Hilario was held out of the last two contests for rest purposes, but it appears he'll be ready to roll Friday night. The big man hasn't contributed much of late, averaging 2.6 points and 3.2 rebounds in his previous five matchups off the bench.
