Ennis agreed Wednesday with the Rockets on a two-year contract, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. The second season includes a player option.
Ennis appeared in 45 games for the Grizzlies last season before being dealt to Detroit at the trade deadline. Across both stops, he averaged 7.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 22.3 minutes per game. While he improved his field-goal and free-throw shooting, he saw his three-point accuracy dip from 37.2 percent to 33.3 percent. Ennis may have an opportunity to see a similar workload in Houston, assuming the Rockets don't make any major additions at forward via free agency or trade.
Ennis recorded 7.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists across 72 games played with the Grizzlies and Pistons in 2017-18.
Ennis had his best season of his career in 2017-18 mainly because he was able to see the floor for 72 games and scored a personal-high 1,604 total points. The Long Beach State product proved his case to stay with the Pistons, although he will be a free agent once the season officially concludes.
Ennis went scoreless (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in seven minutes during Wednesday's 115-108 loss to the 76ers.
Ennis returned from a one-game absence with a hand injury, but he was not a factor. This was the first time that Ennis didn't earn double-digit minutes since being acquired by the Pistons at the trade deadline. It's possible that Ennis was merely being eased back into the lineup. Still, there are only four games remaining, so fantasy owners (even in deep leagues) can only be so patient.
Ennis (hand) is available to play in Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.
Ennis missed Sunday's matchup against the Nets with a hand injury, but it apparently wasn't anything overly serious, as he's been cleared for a return after a one-game layoff. He'll slot back in as depth on the wing, likely looking at minutes in the upper-teens or low-20s if the hand holds up. Due to his workload, Ennis doesn't have much upside for fantasy purposes.
Ennis won't play in Sunday's game against the Nets due to a hand injury, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
The specifics of Ennis' hand injury haven't been disclosed and it's unclear how long it will take him to recover from the injury. Reggie Bullock and Luke Kennard will figure to see minutes increases while Ennis is out. Looking ahead, Ennis' first chance to return will be on Wednesday against Philadelphia.
