Rockets' Kenyon Martin: Recalled from G League
Martin was recalled from the G League on Saturday, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
Martin's G League season is over, and he'll re-join the Rockets. In 10 G League appearances with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, he averaged 17.5 points, 11.3 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.7 assists in 31.5 minutes. He's unlikely to have a fantasy-relevant role with Houston the rest of the way.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Kevin Porter: Recalled from G League
Porter has been recalled from the G League and will play for the Rockets after the All-Star break, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
As expected, the second-year pro will get a chance to play in the NBA after Cleveland dealt him to Houston, and he was subsequently sent to the G League. Porter was excellent in the G League. In 36.0 minutes per game, he averaged 24.1 points, 7.3 assists, 6.4 rebounds and 1.6 steals. It's not clear what his role will be for the Rockets, but he'll presumably come off the bench and compete for minutes with Sterling Brown, Jae'Sean Tate and Ben McLemore.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Kenyon Martin: Returns to action in G League
Martin (ankle) played nine minutes for the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers in their 110-94 win over the Santa Cruz Warriors on Friday, finishing with zero points (0-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two rebounds and one assist.
Martin hadn't played for the Vipers since Feb. 23 due to a sprained ankle, but he was cleared to return from a two-week absence Friday. He played only a limited role off the bench for the Vipers, but look for his minutes to gradually ramp up in Rio Grande Valley's subsequent contests at the G League bubble in Orlando. Martin is expected to rejoin the Rockets shortly after the NBA All-Star break, but he likely won't see enough minutes with Houston in the second half to warrant much fantasy intrigue.... See More ...

Rockets' Kevin Porter: Nears triple-double Thursday
Porter logged 28 points (9-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 assists, nine rebounds, two steals and one block over 37 minutes in Thursday's 130-107 win over the Ignite.
Porter took on an increased role for the Vipers once again Thursday with Kenyon Martin (ankle) unavailable, and he came within one rebound of recording a triple-double during the blowout win. He's now averaging 24.3 points, 7.1 assists and 6.3 rebounds over 35.8 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Victor Oladipo: Fills stat sheet Wednesday
Oladipo notched 33 points (9-25 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 10-13 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks across 37 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Nets.
Oladipo scored a season-high 33 points while also leaving his mark on both ends of the court, as he recorded multiple tallies in every single category to deliver a strong fantasy performance. He has scored at least 20 points in each of his last three appearances, and Oladipo is now firmly entrenched as one of the Rockets' main scoring weapons alongside John Wall.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jae'Sean Tate: Delivers double-double
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....

Rockets' John Wall: Explodes for 36 points
Wall had 36 points (12-30 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 7-11 FT), five assists, two rebounds and a block across 41 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Nets.
Wall has now scored 30 or more points in back-to-back games, and he has reached the 20-point mark in four of his last five contests. The veteran point guard is firmly established as the Rockets' main offensive threat and the numbers are backing him up to be a solid contributor on a nightly basis.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Jae'Sean Tate: Rejoins starting five
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.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Justin Patton: Shifts to bench
Patton will come off the bench Wednesday against the Nets, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
The 23-year-old started the past two games at center for the Rockets, but coach Stephen Silas will start small Wednesday with Jae'Sean Tate and P.J. Tucker in the frontcourt. Patton should still be plenty involved since the Rockets have only eight available players.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Sterling Brown: Starting vs. Nets
Brown will start Wednesday's game against the Nets, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Brown will get his second start of the season Wednesday. In his lone start, he posted 23 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in 37 minutes. However, it would be surprising if we saw him reach those heights again Wednesday with both John Wall and Victor Oladipo available.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' David Nwaba: Out at least six weeks
Nwaba (wrist) is undergoing surgery and will miss at least six weeks, Ben DuBose of USA Today reports.
Nwaba missed Monday's game against the Nets with a strained right wrist. However, the injury is apparently more serious than initially thought, and Nwaba will undergo surgery that will keep him out until around mid-April. While he's sidelined, Sterling Brown, Ben McLemore and Jae'Sean Tate are all candidates to see extra run.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Danuel House: Ruled out Wednesday
House (knee) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Nets.
House bruised his right knee against the Cavs on Monday, limiting him to just 11minutes of action in the loss. He was initially listed as questionable for Wednesday, but the Rockets have since ruled him out. Eric Gordon (knee) and David Nwaba (wrist) will also be sidelined, so Houston will be a bit shorthanded at the two and three spots.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Eric Gordon: Out Wednesday
Gordon (knee) is out Wednesday against the Nets.
Gordon will miss his second consecutive game with left knee soreness, and we won't see him again until after the All-Star break. In his absence, Sterling Brown, Jae'Sean Tate and Ben McLemore remain candidates to see extra usage.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Danuel House: Officially questionable Wednesday
House (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets.
The 27-year-old suffered a bruised right knee during Monday's matchup with Cleveland, but he may not end up missing any time. House has started the past seven games and is averaging 10.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 26.3 minutes during that stretch. Eric Gordon (knee) is also questionable, and David Nwaba (wrist) is out, so the Rockets could be short on wing depth Wednesday, depending on the status of House and Gordon.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' David Nwaba: Out vs. Nets
Nwaba (wrist) is out Wednesday against the Nets.
Nwaba will be sidelined for a second straight game, and the final game before the All-Star break, due to a strained right wrist. In his absence, Jae'Sean Tate and Sterling Brown could see extra run.... See More ... See Less
