Chriss made his season debut Tuesday after recovering from an ankle injury, posting four points, two rebounds and one block across eight minutes. Regardless, the Rockets aren't prepared to lock Chriss in for the $4.1 million he was set to make next season. He'll become an unrestricted free agent next summer as a result.
Chriss contributed four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, and one block in eight minutes during Tuesday's 104-85 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Chriss made his season debut for his new team after missing the first five tilts of 2018-19 due to an ankle injury. Chriss is an athletic young big man with some theoretical small-ball center and power forward potential, and the Rockets would be wise to leave no stone unturned given their 1-5 start. With that being said, Chriss was a foul magnet who didn't defend well or score efficiently in his first two years, albeit with the less-than-stellar Suns.
Chriss (ankle) is not listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
As expected, Chriss will suit up and make his Rockets debut Tuesday after practicing the last two days. Chriss has been out since the preseason, so he will likely be eased back into the rotation, but the 21-year-old will provide the Rockets with some much-needed depth behind starter Clint Capela.
Chriss (ankle) is hoping to return for Tuesday's game against Portland, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Chriss is yet to play this season while nursing an ankle injury, but he said he's hoping to practice twice over the next few days and, if all goes well, he'll be available off the bench Tuesday.
Chriss (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
After missing the first four games of the season, Chriss remains questionable Friday due to a lingering sprained left ankle. The Rockets aren't rushing back Chriss anytime soon however, as forwards P.J. Tucker and Carmelo Anthony will remain atop the depth chart.
