Hartenstein was sent to the G League on Wednesday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Rio Grande Valley Vipers play in G League Western Conference semifinals on Friday, so they'll want Hartenstein available.
Hartenstein hadn't appeared in a game at the NBA or G League level for the previous two weeks while managing the Achilles injury. The big man looks to be over the injury now, as his minutes were only limited because he's simply guaranteed nothing more than garbage time as a non-rotation player for the Rockets. Expect Hartenstein to pick up more run next week for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, who are awaiting the Stockton Kings or Memphis Hustle for a second-round matchup in the G League playoffs.
Hartenstein (Achilles) won't play in Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Hartenstein will miss his 18th-straight game Sunday due to an Achilles injury. Despite Hartenstein continuing to be listed as day-to-day, he doesn't appear to be close to returning as not definite timetable has been supplied by the Rockets.
Hartenstein (Achilles) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Timberwolves, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Hartenstein hasn't appeared in over a month, with his last appearance coming on Feb. 11. He should be considered questionable for their next game, Tuesday against Atlanta.
Hartenstein (Achilles) will not play Wednesday against the Warriors.
As expected, Hartenstein will not be available as he continues to nurse a sore Achilles. He hasn't been a part of the regular rotation since November and hasn't appeared in a game since Feb. 11.
