Player Notes

  • Sterling Brown (lower leg injury) game-time call
    Sterling Brown will be a game-time decision to play on Saturday against the Spurs, and without him the Rockets will only have seven active players.

    Advice: The Rockets are missing the bulk of their team due to a pending trade involving James Harden, and injuries to John Wall, Eric Gordon and DeMarcus Cousins. If Brown can't give it a go, the Rockets would be down to seven players, and wouldn't have enough to play. If a game is played, expect extended run for Houston's remaining seven: Christian Wood, Mason Jones, Ben McLemore, David Nwaba, Jae'Sean Tate, and P.J. Tucker. Rotoworld.com 14 minutes ago
  • Eric Gordon (leg) is out on Saturday vs. the Spurs
    Eric Gordon won't play on Saturday against the Spurs due to left leg tightness.

    Advice: The Rockets are in trouble, missing nearly half their roster due to injury or trade. The only guards Houston will have available are Ben McLemore, rookie Mason Jones and maybe Sterling Brown, who's a game-time decision to play. Jae'Sean Tate, David Nwaba and P.J. Tucker should get a lot of run, too. Rotoworld.com 23 minutes ago
  • Jamal Murray: "My elbow bothers me on every shot"
    Jamal Murray says that he has a bruise on his elbow that bothers him every time he shoots a basketball.

    Advice: “My elbow bothers me on every (shot)," Murray said. "I got a bruise there. Every game I seem to hit it or kinda tweak it again.” This explains a lot for Murray, one of the world's best shooters who has made just 15 out of his last 38 shots from the field. He's relatively underwhelmed for much of the season considering the leap most expected him to take after a hot run in the bubble. Look to see if Mike Malone chooses to rest him at some point to get his elbow fully right. Otherwise, he could continue to be a shell of himself on the floor.     Rotoworld.com 38 minutes ago
  • Alec Burks (left ankle) doubtful vs Knicks Sunday
    Alec Burks (left ankle) is considered doubtful to play vs the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: The Knicks have a back-to-back set starting with the Celtics tomorrow and the Magic on Monday. Burks could return against Orlando on MLK Day, but Tom Thibodeau might end up playing it safe as his team will have two days off after another B2B set on Thursday and Friday which would allow Burks a couple more days to get back into game shape.

  • Jalen Brunson (COVID-protocol) questionable Sun.
    Jalen Brunson (COVID-protocol) has been upgraded to questionable for Sunday's game against the Bulls.

    Advice: Brunson has missed the last few games adhering to the NBA's health and safety protocols but could now return on Sunday. He might be a bit sluggish after not playing for over a week, but if Tim Hardaway Jr. (groin) can't go, Brunson could play some more minutes for a Dallas team that has multiple players already sidelined.
