  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Posts 14 points in loss

    Green racked up 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist across 30 minutes during Monday's 111-91 loss to the 76ers.

    Green logged one of his most accurate shooting nights since returning from a 14-game absence and has logged double-digit scoring numbers in every game since rejoining the team. The Rockets depend heavily on Green's production, and he should remain in the starting lineup, barring any health setbacks.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Gets buckets again

    Green finished Wednesday's 114-111 win over the Wizards with 22 points (8-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 34 minutes.

    Green has averaged a healthy 17.7 points on 44.6 percent shooting from the field across his previous six games since returning from a hamstring injury. However, the rookie is continuing to supply very few peripheral stats. Green has graded as a negative contributor during his time on the floor on the season, but his recent offensive uptick is promising.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Scores team-high 29 points

    Green provided 29 points (6-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 12-14 FT), one rebound and one assist in 28 minutes during Saturday's 124-111 loss to the Nuggets.

    Both Christian Wood and Kevin Porter (thigh) played limited minutes in the contest, leaving Green to carry the bulk of the offense. The rookie responded with his highest scoring effort since dropping 30 on Boston on Oct. 24, though he didn't notch any defensive stats and added just one board and one assist. Green's lack of peripheral stats has been a theme throughout his rookie campaign, so his fantasy value is almost exclusively tied to his ability to score and knock down triples.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Good to go vs. Nuggets

    Green (hamstring) is available for Saturday's contest against the Nuggets.

    Green is apparently still dealing with some pain in his hamstring, but he'll be fine for Saturday. Since his return, he's averaged 20.0 points on 48.8 percent shooting, 2.7 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 30.3 minutes.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Probable vs. Denver

    Green (hamstring) is probable for Saturday's matchup against the Nuggets, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Green is apparently still dealing with some pain in his hamstring, but he's appeared in three of the past four games. Since his return, he's averaged 20.0 points on 48.8 percent shooting, 2.7 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 30.3 minutes.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Two good games since return

    Green (hamstring) put up 24 points (8-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four assists, two rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes Tuesday in the Rockets' 132-123 loss to the Lakers.

    Green was out for the front end of the back-to-back set Monday in Charlotte while he received maintenance for the hamstring injury that recently kept him sidelined, but he was back in the lineup Tuesday and thrived while playing big minutes. Before he sustained the injury Nov. 24, Green had gotten off to a rocky, inefficient start to his NBA career, but the rookie has been outstanding in his first two games since returning to action. He's put up a combined 46 points in those contests while knocking down half of his shots from the field and going 10-for-18 from long range.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Goes for 24 points in return

    Green posted 24 points (8-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, four assists and two steals in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 132-123 loss to Los Angeles.

    Green returned to action after resting Dec. 27 against the Hornets and was one of Houston's best players in this one. The rookie has struggled with a hamstring injury during most of this month, but he's completely recovered now and should remain in the starting five on a regular basis going forward. Green is averaging 14.8 points per game despite shooting just 39.5 percent from the field.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Removed from injury report

    Green (hamstring) isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's contest against the Lakers, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

    Green returned from a 14-game absence to drop 20 points in 25 minutes against the Pacers on Dec. 23, but he was subsequently sidelined for the Rockets' next game due to rest. Before his absence, the rookie first-round pick was averaging 14.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 30.5 minutes per game.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Active, unlikely to play

    Coach Stephen Silas said Green (hamstring) is active but unlikely to play in Monday's contest against the Hornets, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Green returned from a 14-game absence to play 25 minutes during Thursday's loss to the Pacers, but the Rockets are electing to be cautious with their rookie first-round pick. In his potential absence, Armoni Brooks and Eric Gordon are both candidates for increased minutes Monday.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Questionable for Monday

    Green (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Hornets.

    Green made his return to action Thursday against the Pacers after a long injury layoff, so the Rockets will keep an eye on how his hamstring responds Monday before officially clearing him to play. The No. 2 overall pick finished Thursday's game with 20 points, two assists, one rebound, one block and two steals.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Promising return

    Green notched 20 points (7-14 FG, 6-9 3Pt), one rebound, two assists, one block and two steals across 25 minutes during Thursday's 118-106 loss to the Pacers.

    Green rained in six threes -- just the second outing of his career in which he's connected on over five threes. Freshly off missing a month with a hamstring injury, perhaps Green's absence yielded positive growth in slowing down the game and a renewed outlook offensively. Green had received a share of the blame for the Rockets atrocious start -- shooting 38 percent over 18 contests -- but the 19-year-old's best basketball is still ahead of him.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Will have minutes restriction

    Green (hamstring) will face a minutes restriction Thursday against the Pacers, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Coach Stephen Silas did not specify what that limit will be -- he said Green's minutes load "will not be very high" -- but this shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering this will be Green's first time playing 5-on-5 since he sustained the hamstring injury back on Nov. 24. The rookie remains an attractive long-term fantasy option, but his lack of efficiency has been a thorn in the side of season-long managers thus far.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Officially returning Thursday

    Green (hamstring) is officially off the injury report and making his return Thursday against the Pacers, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

    As expected, Green is making his return just before Christmas following a 14-game absence due to a hamstring injury. There's a good chance he'll be on a minutes limit in his first game back, and possibly a couple more, but the Rockets will look to integrate him back into the rotation as quickly as possible. While the rookie has struggled shooting (38.2 percent from the field), he will continue seeing significant usage as the franchise continues its rebuild with him as the primary focus.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Set to make return Thursday

    Green (hamstring) is planning to make his return to action Thursday against the Pacers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    A strained hamstring has kept the No. 2 overall pick sidelined since Nov. 24, but he's ramped up his activity in recent weeks and is on track to return to the lineup just before Christmas. While Green will remain out for Wednesday's game at Milwaukee -- it will mark his 14th straight absence -- he should be close to a full-go Thursday, though the Rockets will keep a close eye on how his left hamstring responds. With how the schedule breaks down, Green will have three full days off before the Rockets resume their post-Christmas schedule Monday at Charlotte.
