Rockets' Michael Carter-Williams: Probable for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter-Williams is officially listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Carter-Williams has been battling a sore left knee in recent days, but the expectation is that he'll play Wednesday night. He went through a full practice Monday, so the "probable" designation is likely just precautionary.

Rockets' Nene Hilario: Out for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilario (calf) will not play Wednesday against the Pelicans, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

The veteran is still nursing a sore right calf/ankle and won't be available Wednesday. However, coach Mike D'Antoni said he expects Nene to "be back soon," so consider the 36-year-old questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers.

Rockets' Marquese Chriss: Will miss season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chriss (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Pelicans, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Chriss has been dealing with a sprained ankle for roughly a week and a half and the discomfort will now linger into the regular season. The good news, however, is that head coach Mike D'Antoni expects Chriss to "be back soon," so look for the big man to be available at some point over the next few games. Chriss' next opportunity to make his debut will be Saturday against the Lakers.

Rockets' Brandon Knight: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Knight was sidelined for all of training camp and the preseason, and while there was some optimism that he would be ready for the season opener, it looks like the point guard still has a little ways to go in his recovery from a torn ACL. Knight will continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis moving forward.

Rockets' Zhou Qi: Will not play in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Qi (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's season opener against the Pelicans, Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Qi was wheelchaired off the off the court just over a week ago with a knee injury, so it's no surprise to see him ruled out for the opener. Qi remains without a timetable for his recovery, but his absence won't have an impact on the Rockets' rotation.
