  • Bruno Caboclo: Signs in France

    Caboclo signed a contract Friday with French club Limoges CSP.

    After seven seasons in the NBA between four different franchises, Caboclo will move on to overseas basketball. The 25-year-old could never show the type of flashes that NBA teams needed to see to keep him around. It's possible he eventually makes his way back into the NBA, but he'll likely have to have significant success overseas.

  • Bruno Caboclo: Waived by Rockets

    Caboclo was waived by the Rockets on Wednesday night, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

    After sending out James Harden and receiving three players back, including Victor Oladipo, the Rockets needed to open up a roster spot. That resulted in Caboclo being waived. He's played just 36 total minutes this season, totaling 17 points, 14 rebounds, two blocks and one assist. He's struggled to find a consistent role in the league and hasn't played more than 800 minutes in a season.

  • Rockets' Bruno Caboclo: Scores team-high 17 points

    Caboclo registered 17 points (5-11 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks, an assist and a steal across 26 minutes off the bench during Friday's 125-104 win over the Bulls.

    All signs point toward Caboclo being a bench weapon for the Rockets this season, but this kind of production could result in an uptick of minutes if he's able to carry it onto the regular season. The fact that Caboclo paced Houston in points, rebounds and minutes played in this contest suggests he might be line for an extended look in the preseason, and a strong showing could result in a bigger-than-expected role once the regular season begins later this month.

  • Rockets' Bruno Caboclo: Cleared to return to team

    Caboclo's extra quarantine period ended Monday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

  • Rockets' Bruno Caboclo: Breaks quarantine, won't practice

    Caboclo began a 10-day period of self-isolation in his hotel room Saturday after inadvertently breaking quarantine at the Walt Disney World complex in Orlando, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

    Caboclo isn't believed to have developed any symptoms of COVID-19 after breaking quarantine, but he'll nonetheless have to go into isolation in compliance with the NBA's rules for the Orlando bubble. The timing of the quarantine breach will force Caboclo to miss out on some conditioning work, which could prompt the Rockets to hold him out when the team resumes its season July 31 versus the Mavericks. Even before the NBA's four-plus-month hiatus, Caboclo hadn't been a regular fixture in the Houston rotation, appearing in just five of the team's 10 games following the All-Star break and averaging just 5.6 minutes per contest.

  • Rockets' Bruno Caboclo: Makes team debut

    Caboclo (knee) logged five minutes off the bench in Thursday's 135-105 win over the Warriors, finishing with zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two steals, one rebound and one block.

    Acquired from Memphis prior to the trade deadline, Caboclo made his Rockets debut in the team's first game out of the All-Star break after being sidelined for nearly five weeks with a bone bruise in his left knee. The 24-year-old might see his role grow as he becomes further removed from the injury, but in Thursday's contest, his only action came in the final 5:11 of the fourth quarter, when the Rockets were leading by 32. For the time being, the newly signed Jeff Green looks like he'll stick in the rotation ahead of Caboclo as the backup to starting center P.J. Tucker.

  • Rockets' Bruno Caboclo: Not on injury report

    Caboclo (knee) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Thursday's game against the Warriors.

    Caboclo, who came over from Memphis at the trade deadline, has not played since Jan. 12, and he entered the All-Star break still nursing a bone bruise in his left knee. His removal from the injury report signals that he's healthy, but Caboclo is unlikely to be a part of the Rockets' rotation.

  • Rockets' Bruno Caboclo: Eyeing return after break

    Caboclo (knee) said Sunday that he expects to available for the Rockets when the team reconvenes following the All-Star break, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Though Caboclo will remain unavailable when the Rockets wrap up their first-half schedule Tuesday versus Boston, the 24-year-old looks like he could be ready to make his team debut as soon as Feb. 20 at Golden State. Caboclo has been sidelined since mid-January with a bone bruise in his hyperextended left knee, but he was able to complete an on-court workout Sunday. The newly acquired big man could get a look as a small-ball center for Houston, though he likely wouldn't be in store for major minutes behind starter P.J. Tucker.

  • Rockets' Bruno Caboclo: Traded to Houston

    Caboclo (knee) was dealt Thursday from the Grizzlies to the Rockets in exchange for Jordan Bell, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The teams also exchanged future second-round picks in the deal.

    Before he was diagnosed with a bone bruise in his left knee in mid-January, Caboclo had seen a minimal role with the Grizzlies this season, appearing in 22 games and averaging 2.8 points and 2.0 rebounds in 8.7 minutes. His outlook won't change much with Houston once he's cleared to play again, likely at some point shortly after the All-Star break.
