Top D.J. Wilson News

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Clear of injury report

    Wilson (COVID-19 protocols) isn't listed on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

    The 25-year-old missed the past seven games due to the league's health and safety protocols, but it appears he'll return for the season finale Sunday. The Rockets remain extremely short-handed, so Wilson could see solid minutes off the bench.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Remains in protocols

    Wilson (health and safety protocols) will not play Wednesday against Philadelphia, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Wilson missed Sunday's loss to New York and he'll remain out for at least one more contest as he deals with the NBA's COVID-19 protocols. Prior to the setback, Wilson had taken a larger role for the banged-up Rockets, averaging 12.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.8 threes and 1.0 steals over his last four appearances.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Ruled out Sunday

    Wilson has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks due to health and safety protocols, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

    Wilson had come off the bench in each of the last three games and averaged 8.7 points and 6.7 rebounds in 21.3 minutes per contest during that time. It's not yet clear how much time Wilson will miss, but Jae'Sean Tate could see increased run in his absence.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Double-double off bench

    Wilson scored 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with 12 rebounds and one assist in a 143-136 victory over the Bucks on Thursday.

    Wilson scored in double figures for the second time in his last three games and picked up his first double-double of the season. The forward has had somewhat of an inconsistent role with Houston but saw 25 minutes of action against his former team Thursday. Despite the big performance, Wilson typically isn't a player to target in most weekly lineup leagues.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Coming off bench

    Wilson will come off the bench Tuesday against the Timberwolves, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    With Kelly Olynyk and Christian Wood available, Wilson will resume his usual role as a bench option. This month, he's averaged 5.5 points and 3.2 rebounds in 13.4 minutes.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Leads team with 25 points in start

    Wilson posted 25 points (10-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and three steals across 40 minutes in Saturday's 129-116 loss to the Nuggets.

    The Rockets faced an uphill battle Saturday with a slim seven-man rotation, but they found an unexpected bright spot in Wilson, who aptly filled in for Christian Wood (ankle). Since his trade from the Bucks, Wilson has seen increased production in what seems to be a full rebuild for the Rockets, but few expected a team-leading performance. The Rockets are currently reeling with multiple injuries, so more appearances from the former Michigan standout could be in store as they plod through the final month of the season.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Steps into starting role

    Wilson is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Nuggets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Wilson will benefit from increased opportunities as the Rockets work to plan around numerous injuries. He's only handled more than 15 minutes on a single occasion this month, however, so being listed as a starter won't necessarily make it easy to trust Wilson for fantasy purposes.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Scores eight points off bench

    Wilson delivered eight points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), two rebounds and two steals across 17 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss against the Nuggets.

    Wilson's eight-point output stands as his second-best scoring effort of the campaign, though fantasy managers shouldn't expect much from him on most nights. His playing time has been inconsistent, and he's failed to reach the 20-minute mark in 27 appearances this season, so he shouldn't be targeted in any format unless that situation changes.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Seeing inconsistent playing time

    Wilson is averaging 10.3 minutes, 3.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 0.4 blocks, 0.3 steals and 0.3 assists during seven games in April.

    Kelly Olynyk has taken over as a starter in the frontcourt, averaging 30.9 minutes over the last 10 games after being traded to Houston in part of the Victor Oladipo deal. During that span, Wilson has lost his shooting stroke, connecting on only 28.6 percent from three in April. It appears as if Wilson is the odd man out of the team's rotation despite cratering out of the Western Conference playoff race.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Nears double-double in loss

    Wilson logged eight points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3PT, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 19 minutes of play Wednesday in a 122-97 loss to the Hornets.

    Wilson had arguably one of his best performances of the season, recording a season-high eight rebounds. Since Wilson was traded from the Bucks, his minutes have steadily increased over the first few games with his new team. Considering the Rockets footing near the bottom of the Western Conference, it's entirely possible the 2017 first-round pick could see a rise in playing time over the ensuing months as the team attempts to develop some of its younger players.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Available Friday

    Wilson (not injury related) will be available to make his debut for the Rockets during Friday's game against the Pistons, Ben DuBose of USA Today reports.

    Wilson was traded from the Bucks to the Rockets on Wednesday, and he'll suit up off the bench against Detroit on Friday. Wilson averaged just 8.8 minutes per game with the Bucks to begin the season but could see some extended looks for the Rockets once he gets acquainted with the team's system.

  • Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Shipped to Houston

    The Bucks traded Wilson, D.J. Augustin and an unprotected 2023 first-round pick to the Rockets on Wednesday in exchange for P.J. Tucker, Rodions Kurucs (oblique) and a 2022 first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Wilson has appeared in only two of the past 16 games for Milwaukee, so the move to Houston can only increase his prospective playing time. The 25-year-old is unlikely to have a major role for the Rockets but will provide frontcourt depth for a young roster in need of just that. As Houston careens toward the high-lottery, it's possible they'll give Wilson, a former first-round pick, some extended looks down the stretch.

  • Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Doesn't play Thursday

    Wilson didn't play during Thursday's win against Memphis.

    Wilson has only seen the court just once over the past 13 games now, logging five minutes against Denver on Tuesday. In 11 total games played, the center is averring 3.6 points and 2.1 rebounds in 9.0 minutes.

  • Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Sees garbage-time run in win

    Wilson tallied five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and one rebound in nine minutes Monday in the Bucks' 134-106 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Wilson didn't leave the bench until 9:23 remained in the fourth quarter, when the Bucks had already built their lead to 37 points. The nine-minute cameo was Wilson's first appearance in nine games, a clear indication he won't factor into head coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation in more competitive contests.

  • Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Tallies season-high 12 points

    Wilson secured 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist across 16 minutes during Saturday's win over the Cavaliers.

    Wilson's 12 points marked a season high as he scored in double figures for the first time this season despite the limited minutes. The 24-year-old has taken on a small role for Milwaukee so far this season, averaging 4.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 threes across 11.3 minutes per game.
