Tate recorded 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and an assist across 32 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Nets.
Tate returned to the starting lineup after a two-game stint off the bench and responded with his first double-double of the season. Tate can't be trusted for sustained scoring production on a nightly basis, but he's been doing a good job of late and has scored at least 10 points in five of the team's last eight games.
Tate will start Wednesday's game against the Nets, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
The 25-year-old came off the bench the past two games but will return to the lineup Wednesday. Tate is averaging 10.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 28.7 minutes as a starter this season.
Tate registered five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 30 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss against the Cavaliers.
Tate moved to the bench recently and while he was unable to muster a lot of offense, he did record multiple tallies in three categories while making an impact across the board. That said, these numbers won't be enough to make him a reliable asset in most fantasy formats, especially now that he's expected to come off the bench for the foreseeable future.
Tate totaled 14 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 133-84 loss to the Grizzlies.
Tate moved back to the bench as the Rockets attempted to combat the size of the Memphis frontcourt. The maneuver clearly failed given the Grizzlies' 49-point margin of victory, so Tate could make his return to the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Cavaliers. He has been a sneaky free-agent pickup for the Rockets, and despite a couple of bumps in the road, Tate remains a justifiable roster option in 12-team leagues.
Tate isn't starting Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Tate had started in each of the last 19 games for the Rockets, but he'll come off the bench in Sunday's matchup. Justin Patton will take his place in the starting five against Memphis.
Tate finished with just eight points (3-8 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 112-96 loss to Cleveland.
Tate, along with basically the entire roster, struggled to get anything going on Wednesday. He had been rolling prior to this game and is a top-70 player over the past two weeks. The Rockets appear as though they are going to give him every opportunity to perform and while there are sure to be a few bumps in the road, his role alone warrants a roster spot in 12-team leagues.
Tate scored 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt) to go along with eight rebounds, two assists and three steals across 31 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bulls.
Tate continued to rack up defensive stats, as he's now recorded multiple steals in three consecutive games. He's gotten consistent playing time in the absence of several key players in the Rockets' rotation -- most recently Victor Oladipo (foot) -- and topped 30 minutes six times in his last ten contests. That has allowed Tate to score in double figures on seven occasions in that same span despite relatively low usage, also racking up 5.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists.
Tate dropped 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and added six rebounds, four assists and two steals over 40 minutes in the Rockets' 131-119 loss to the Wizards on Monday.
Tate led the way in playing time for the shorthanded Rockets, with the 40 minutes also representing a new career high. The rookie's ability to play nearly every position on the court makes him a fit in both normal and small-ball lineups, and his minutes should continue to get pushed up while the Rockets wait for the likes of Victor Oladipo (foot), Christian Wood (ankle), P.J. Tucker (quadriceps) and Eric Gordon (groin) to overcome injuries. Over his last five games, Tate is averaging 13.8 points and 5.6 rebounds while shooting 61.2 percent from the field.
Tate collected 16 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in a 101-94 loss to the Heat on Thursday.
Tate had a solid all-around game while being efficient from the floor. The rookie continues to be a bright spot for a struggling Rockets team. Tate has averaged 9.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists while also putting up decent numbers on the defensive end. While the forward isn't going to give you a ton of scoring, he can usually be relied upon for a handful of rebounds and assists each game.
Tate added 13 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 29 minutes in Monday's 119-94 loss to the Hornets.
Tate finished tied for second with Danuel House among Rockets starters with 13 points. During his run of 11 consecutive starts, Tate is averaging 9.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals across 26.9 minutes per game.
Tate posted 19 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots and a steal across 31 minutes in Thursday's 115-103 win over the Grizzlies.
Tate's emergence in Houston places him in the Rookie of the Year conversation. He's now started nine straight games for the Rockets, and Tate is making the most of this opportunity with a high-powered offense filled with playmakers. With his career-high 19 points, we're seeing a great example of the Ohio State product's upside moving forward.
Tate had 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3PT) and nine rebounds in Saturday's win over the Pelicans.
Making his sixth straight start, the rookie played 24 minutes and scored in double-figures for the first time since Jan. 22. Tate also chipped in three steals on the defensive end, matching his season-high, which he initially set on Jan. 16 against San Antonio.
Tate will start Wednesday's game against the Suns, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
The 25-year-old came off the bench Monday against the Bulls but will rejoin the starting five for the third time in the past four games. Tate averaged 10.0 points, 7.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 29.5 minutes in his two previous starts.
Tate played 30 minutes in Monday's 125-120 loss to the Bulls, scoring 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and adding six rebounds and one block.
Back on the bench after a two-game run in the starting five, Tate still saw the fifth-most minutes of any Rockets player. Head coach Stephen Silas has seemingly taken a liking to Tate for the multifaceted skill set he offers, as the 25-year-old rookie has seen work this season as a de facto point guard and a small-ball center. Once the Rockets are back to full strength, Tate's minutes likely will fall back into the 20- to 25-range, but he should be one of the main beneficiaries if and when Houston eventually trades away P.J. Tucker.
Tate will start Thursday's game against the Spurs, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Tate will get the nod over David Nwaba, who coach Stephen Silas apparently feels is better suited for a bench role in this matchup where John Wall (knee) and Eric Gordon (lower leg) are unavailable, not to mention James Harden now being on the Nets. Tate has seen at least 24 minutes in five contests this season, averaging 8.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in those matchups.
Tate has appeared in each of the Rockets' last four games, averaging 25.8 minutes per contest.
The 25-year-old rookie looked good in training camp and has been rewarded with some early season minutes, though his role could shrink as the Rockets get some regulars back from COVID-19 protocol. In his most recent game Saturday, Tate posted five points, two rebounds, two steals and one assist in a win over the Kings.
Tate scored 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and grabbed four rebounds in Saturday's overtime loss to the Trail Blazers.
With the Rockets down to nine eligible players for their season opener, Tate was given a robust 37 minutes of playing time in his first taste of NBA action. James Harden and Christian Wood combined to take exactly half of Houston's 88 field-goal attempts, but Tate made the most of his nine shots, converting five of his tries, including one three-pointer. He's unlikely to play this much once Houston's COVID-quarantined players return to the court, but Tate at least showed that he's capable of contributing in a reserve role with his effort Saturday.
Tate is not on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against Portland.
Tate was one of several Rockets who was under contact tracing investigation on Wednesday, but he's not listed on the injury report, so all indications are that he'll be available Saturday. The Rockets will likely be severely shorthanded, so the rookie, who showed well during the preseason, should be set for increased minutes.
Tate was sent home from shootaround Wednesday due to COVID-19 contact tracing, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.
The situation surrounding the Rockets is still developing, but as of Wednesday afternoon, Tate's status for the night's opener looks to be in question. The 25-year-old rookie showed some promise during the preseason and could emerge as a potential rotation player for Stephen Silas this season.
Tate isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason game against the Spurs, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.
The 25-year-old started the first two exhibition contests but will return to the bench with P.J. Tucker (undisclosed) making his preseason debut. Tate is looking to make his NBA debut during the 2020-21 campaign after averaging 16.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 steals in Australia last year.
