Clark tallied 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt), four rebounds, four steals and three assists across 25 minutes in Thursday's 87-78 win over the Jazz in the Las Vegas Summer League.
Clark spent most of last season in the G-LEague but was called up sporadically to join the Rockets' rotation. While tonight's stat line was encouraging for 6-8 Cincinnati product, he'll need to outpace the other backcourt candidates to gain a seat on the Rockets' bench.
Clark was assigned to the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Friday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
With the Vipers in the Western Conference semifinals of the G League playoffs Friday, Clark will join the team and likely see some extended in-game action. Clark has been a limited member of the team's rotation recently, so he will likely play in all of the Vipers' playoff games until season's end.
Clark was recalled from the G League on Sunday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Clark was sent down to play with the Vipers in Saturday's regular season finale, but he's now back with the NBA club for Sunday's game in New Orleans. Clark has not been a part of Houston's regular rotation.

An uprising move, Clark appeared in just eight minutes across five games during since being recalled March 7th. The rookie forward's averaging 12.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists in five G-League games this season.
Clark was recalled from the G League on Thursday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Clark was sent down to the G League to participate in the Rio Grande Valley Vipers' contest on Wednesday. He'll participate in the Rockets' practice on Thursday and could play Friday against the 76ers.
Clark was assigned to the G League on Wednesday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Clark has seen some run for the Rockets lately as the team deals with injuries. It's possible his assignment to the G League indicates that Kenneth Faried (calf) is close to full strength.
Clark collected 14 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and one block in 32 minutes during Thursday's 121-118 win over the Heat.
Clark drew the start in place of Eric Gordon (knee) and filled in capably, amassing a career high scoring total while matching his career high in made threes. This is the first time since Jan. 21 that Clark has earned double-digit minutes, and he has appeared in only five of the 16 games since then. With a couple days off in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Celtics, it's possible Gordon and/or Iman Shumpert (calf) will be ready to return to the lineup. However, if either or both of the veteran wings can't give it a go, Clark could once again earn decent minutes.
Clark will start in Thursday's matchup with Miami, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Clark is filling in for Eric Gordon (knee) Thursday. The team initially announced that Gerald Green would start but then shifted to Clark, who hasn't played more than two minutes in a single game in a month. Look for Clark to see an uptick in minutes with Green and Austin Rivers also seeing added time off the bench.
The Rockets recalled Clark from the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Monday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Center Isaiah Hartenstein will also move up to the parent club ahead of Monday's game against the Mavericks after both he and Clark spent the better part of the past week in the G League to pick up playing time. Though Clark had his two-way contract converted into a standard NBA deal in December, he's been excluded from coach Mike D'Antoni's rotation since late January after averaging 3.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in 15.3 minutes per game over his first 34 appearances with the Rockets. Assuming he suits up Monday, Clark likely won't be in store for anything more than a brief cameo off the bench when starting power forward P.J. Tucker requires a breather.
Clark was assigned to the G League on Monday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Clark has recently fallen out of Houston's rotation, appearing in just two of the previous five games -- and totaling four minutes in those contests -- so he'll head to the G League for the time being for some more consistent run. Across 36 appearances with the Rockets this season, Clark is averaging 2.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in 14.6 minutes.
Clark will come off the bench Saturday against the Lakers, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
After being in the starting five for one game, coach Mike D'Antoni has changed his tune, and James Ennis will start at power forward. Clark should still see solid run, however. Over his past four games, he's averaging 4.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20.0 minutes.
Clark will start Wednesday against the Nets, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Coach Mike D'Antoni doesn't seem to have liked what he saw from Nene starting at center during Monday's game against the Grizzlies, so he'll opt to go with a small-ball lineup. Clark will enter the starting five while P.J. Tucker gets pushed to center. Clark is averaging 3.3 points and 2.7 rebounds across 15.4 minutes. It's not immediately clear if this change will be set in stone until the return of Clint Capela (thumb).
Clark signed a three-year, $3.7M deal with the Rockets on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The contract is fully guaranteed this season, half guaranteed in '19-20 with incentives to make it full, and guarantee date in '20-21.
Clark was previously on a one-year deal with the team, but has emerged into enough of a contributor for the Rockets to extend a bigger contract. While he's shooting just 29.9 percent from the field and 27.1 from deep, his defensive abilities have allowed him to see 17.0 minutes per night.
Clark contributed nine points (3-7 FG, 3-7 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 28 minutes during Thursday's 107-86 win over the Warriors.
Clark was listed as questionable with a bruised hip but ultimately was able to give it a go. His numbers have been up and down over the last five games, but he continues to earn no shortage of minutes, especially now that the Carmelo Anthony situation has been resolved. With the Rockets looking to turn up the dial defensively, Clark is a quality fit, especially considering he can also knock down spot-up threes as well.
Clark (hip) will play Thursday against the Warriors, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic Houston reports.
Clark entered Thursday questionable with a bruised hip, but he's been cleared to play after getting through warmups with no issues. The undrafted rookie will assume his usual role off the bench; through 12 games this season, Clark is averaging 3.8 points and 3.1 rebounds across 15.8 minutes.
Clark is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.
Clark is dealing with a bruised hip and his status will be updated after shootaround Thursday. The undrafted rookie played just 15 minutes in Tuesday's win over Denver, his fewest in any game since Nov. 2.
Clark collected six points (2-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 33 minutes during Sunday's 115-103 win over the Pacers.
Clark finished with career highs in rebounding and minutes. With a dark cloud hanging over Carmelo Anthony (illness) in regards to his role going forward, Clark could be in line for more time and fits a similar mold as P.J. Tucker and James Ennis as a 3-and-D wing with the size and versatility to defend multiple positions. Clark is also more experienced than the average rookie, having played four years at Cincinnati. Nevertheless, expectations should be tempered, as Clark is best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
Clark produced three points (1-6 FG, 1-6 3Pt), four rebounds and a block in 27 minutes Thursday against the Thunder.
The rookie recorded a season-high 27 minutes but was able to produce. His minute load has steadily increased over the past seven games as the Rockets are clearly grasping for someone to help them get into gear in the midst of a slow start. Clark outplayed Carmelo Anthony on Thursday, and if the Rockets continue to struggle, there is a possibility he eats into Anthony's playing time even more especially considering he offers more on the defensive end at this point in his career.
Clark played 24 minutes Monday in the Rockets' 98-94 win over the Pacers, finishing with six points (1-6 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, three blocks and two steals.
An undrafted rookie out of Cincinnati, Clark has parlayed a strong training camp and preseason into a key spot in the Houston rotation in the early stages of the campaign. Heralded as a defensive standout during his time in college, Clark has lived up to that reputation thus far in Houston, as he's averaging 2.8 blocks and 1.6 steals per 36 minutes. Clark is unlikely to approach that level of playing time in 2018-19 with more established commodities in P.J. Tucker, Carmelo Anthony, James Ennis and Gerald Green on hand to fill minutes at either forward spot, but the 21-year-old offers some fantasy intrigue, particularly in deeper dynasty leagues. In addition to his defensive exploits, Clark has fired off 27 three-point attempts in 91 total minutes, though he's only hit eight of them (29.6 percent).
