Rockets' Jalen Green: Goes for 16 in finale
Green finished Friday's preseason game against the Spurs with 16 points (4-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT) and one assist.
Finishing out the preseason, the Rockets handled the game like somewhat of a dress rehearsal, as Green (32 minutes), Christian Wood (33) and Kevin Porter Jr. (33) all saw a full workload. The No. 2 overall pick has had an up-and-down preseason -- he's coming off of a seven-turnover effort against Toronto on Monday -- but he'll begin the regular season as a starter and is widely considered the favorite to lead all rookies in scoring. Whether Green will offer fantasy managers much beyond points and threes remains to be seen, however.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jalen Green: Poor outing during loss Monday
Green managed five points (2-6 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds and four assist during Monday's preseason loss to Toronto.
The rookie wasn't much of a factor during another preseason start, as Green converted just two field goals and turned the ball over seven times across 25 minutes of action. Green was coming off of a much better showing against Miami on Thursday, when he posted 20 points with four three-pointers and three steals in 28 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jalen Green: Scores 12 in preseason debut
Green provided 12 points (4-14 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 120-116 preseason win over the Wizards.
The rookie was aggressive in finding his shot, though he wasn't efficient. Still, it's encouraging that he got to the free-throw line six times in 28 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jalen Green: Recovered from hamstring injury
Green said Monday that he's fully healthy following the hamstring injury that hindered him during Summer League, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The No. 2 overall pick downplayed the severity of the issue, which he said required two-to-three weeks of rehab before he felt 100 percent healthy. He'll begin training camp penciled into the starting lineup at one guard spot alongside Kevin Porter Jr. as the Rockets head into what will likely be another rebuilding season. Expectations are high for Green, who spent last season with the G League Ignite, and he joins Porter Jr. and Christian Wood as the keystones of Houston's future. Fantasy-wise, Green projects as more of a score-first guard, so points, three-pointers and free throws will likely be his most valuable categories early on.... See More ... See Less
