Brooks recorded 18 points (6-19 FG, 6-18 3Pt), four rebounds and two steals in Sunday's 124-95 loss to the Hawks.
Brooks has been a dominant scorer for the Rockets recently, averaging 18.4 points per game in the past seven games. The 22-year-old is pretty reliant on the three-point shot as 18 of his 19 shots attempted came from behind the arc. With the season now over, it seems likely that Brooks will stay with the team going into next season.
Brooks scored 24 points (9-18 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and grabbed six rebounds across 37 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers.
The rookie came off the bench in the contest but tied for the team lead in points, treys and minutes. Brooks finished with double-digit points for the fifth straight game, and he has knocked down at least three three-pointers in each of those contests. Over that five-game span, he's averaged 19.2 points and 4.8 triples while shooting 48 percent from beyond the arc.
Brooks tallied 18 points (6-9 FG, 6-9 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one block in 24 minutes Monday in the Rockets' 140-129 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Since joining the Rockets a month ago on a two-way deal, Brooks has quietly emerged as an elite source of three-point production. According to Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston, Brooks' 44 three-pointers are an NBA record for a player's first 17 games of his career, breaking the mark previously set by Damian Lillard in 2012-13. With the 16-53 Rockets firmly in evaluation mode for their final three games of the season, the 22-year-old Brooks should have ample opportunity to fire away from distance the rest of the way.
Brooks registered 19 points (7-14 FG, 5-9 3Pt), six assists, three rebounds, three steals and one block in 34 minutes during Friday's 141-133 loss to the Bucks.
The 22-year-old has now strung together two impressive performances in a row, averaging 19.5 points, 5.5 three-pointers, 3.5 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 32.7 minutes in that span. Brooks has taken advantage of extra playing time due to the plethora of injuries plaguing the 15th-seeded Rockets. The rookie should continue receiving heavy minutes off the bench in the short term, so feel free to stream him in deeper formats if you need three-pointers and points.
Brooks scored 20 points (7-16 FG, 6-14 3Pt) with two rebounds and one steal across 31 minutes in a 135-115 loss to the 76ers on Wednesday.
Coming off the bench for the second consecutive game, Brooks set a career high in made threes. The guard also received a career-high number of shot attempts with Houston missing several key rotation players. Brooks has scored in double figures in two of his last three games, averaging 11.0 points and 3.3 rebounds over that span.
Brooks will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Knicks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Brooks has started five of the last six games, but the Rockets will mix things up and go with Avery Bradley in the backcourt alongside Kevin Porter. Brooks struggled in his most recent appearance Saturday against Golden State, finishing with just 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting (3-10 3Pt) in 31 minutes.
Brooks had 10 points (3-13 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and five rebounds in Saturday's loss to the Warriors.
Making another start with John Wall shut down for the season, Brooks struggled from the field and did not make any defensive contributions in his 31 minutes of action. The two-way signee will be a player worth monitoring over the next two weeks, but it's very much unclear if the Rockets view him as a potential long-term piece.
Brooks tallied six points (2-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt), one rebound and one block across 20 minutes during Thursday's 143-136 win over the Bucks.
Brooks was underwhelming in his fourth start of the season, scoring in single digits for the fifth time across the last six outings. Even when starting, the 22-year-old hasn't been able to produce at a very high level.
Brooks will start Thursday's game against the Bucks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Brooks will make his fourth start of the season as Houston remains riddled with injuries in the backcourt. In his previous three starts, Brooks has averaged 9.0 points on 29.0 percent shooting, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.7 triples per game.
Brooks will come off the bench Tuesday against the Timberwolves, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
With Kevin Porter (COVID-19 protocols) back in the lineup and Danuel House also starting in the backcourt, Brooks will come off the bench. Over his past five appearances off the bench, he's averaged 9.6 points and 2.8 rebounds in 20.2 minutes.
Brooks scored six points (2-11 FG, 2-9 3Pt) with 10 rebounds, four assists and one block in a 112-89 loss to Utah on Wednesday.
With Kevin Porter (health and safety protocols) out of the lineup, Brooks got his first career start and picked up career-high rebound and assist totals. Recently, the rookie has carved out a role in Houston's rotation, averaging 22.6 minutes per game across his last six contests. Over that stretch, Brooks has averaged 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.
Brooks is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's contest against the Jazz, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
With Kevin Porter entering the league's health and safety protocols, Brooks will make his first start of the season Wednesday. In six games with the Rockets, the 22-year-old is averaging 8.0 points and 2.5 rebounds while shooting 40.6 percent from the three-point arc in 17.3 minutes per game.
Brooks played 26 minutes off the bench and scored 16 points (5-7 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding two rebounds, two steals and an assist in Sunday's 114-110 win over the Magic.
Brooks scored nine of the first 11 Rockets points to start the final period en route to his career night. Though he did not get the start, he had a much bigger impact in the scoring column than starter Avery Bradley. With John Wall (rest) set to start in Monday's game against the Heat, Brooks will likely split second team duties with Bradley.
Updating a previous report, Brooks will not start Sunday's game against the Magic, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Rockets apparently released an incorrect lineup earlier in the day, which listed Brooks as the starting two-guard. The team has since clarified that Avery Bradley will get the starting nod.
Brooks will start Sunday's game against the Magic, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.
After playing a career-high 21 minutes off the bench Friday against Denver, Brooks will move into the starting five for the first time as the Rockets play without John Wall (knee). Brooks could make for an interesting, low-cost flyer in DFS contests Sunday, but he's unlikely to be a consistent fantasy contributor.
Brooks played 14 minutes off the bench in Monday's 126-120 loss to the Suns, scoring 14 points (5-6 FG, 4-5 3Pt) and grabbing one rebound.
After playing three minutes of garbage time in his NBA debut on April 9, Brooks received the first meaningful run of his career Monday. He stepped in as the backup point guard after D.J. Augustin played just three minutes before exiting with an ankle injury, giving the second unit a boost with some red-hot shooting. The rookie will likely be included in the rotation if Augustin ends up sitting Wednesday against the Pacers.
Brooks was scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-3 3Pt) with a rebound across three minutes Friday in the Rockets' 126-109 loss to the Clippers.
The Clippers were in control of the contest heading into the final minutes, allowing both sides to empty their benches. Brooks -- whom Houston signed to a two-way deal earlier this month -- was thus able to make his NBA debut in garbage time. Brooks is unlikely to get a long look in head coach Stephen Silas' rotation unless the Rockets are missing multiple key guards on a given night.
Brooks cleared the COVID-19 protocols and will be available for Friday's game against the Clippers, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
The 22-year-old signed with the Rockets on a two-way deal earlier this week and sat out Wednesday while going through the league's health and safety protocols, but he's now been cleared to join the team. Brooks has yet to make his NBA debut since going undrafted out of Houston in 2019.
Brooks has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks due to the league's health and safety protocols.
The 22-year-old signed a two-way pact with Houston over the weekend but is unavailable due to the COVID-19 protocols. Brooks has yet to see NBA action this season.
