F - HOU
Christian Wood has been ruled out ahead of the Rockets games on Friday and Saturday.
Wood was initially just ruled out for Friday's game but with Houston playing a back-to-back, they will keep him out both games. The Rockets have eight players available tonight, including Khyri Thomas who joined the team a couple hours ago.
Christian Wood will remain out Friday against Milwaukee.
This Rockets team is all kind of banged up right now. This will be the second straight game Wood has missed. His next chance to return will be on Saturday against Utah.
Houston Rockets C Christian Wood (ankle) has been ruled out Wednesday vs the 76ers
Wood along with several other Rockets are out on Wednesday. The team will have only eight active bodies for the game against the 76ers. Kelly Olynyk will likely start and be a prime candidate on DFS sites as he's scored over 40 fantasy points in each game without Wood.
Houston Rockets C Christian Wood (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday due to right ankle soreness.
Wood registered 19 points and eight rebounds in his last outing against the Knicks but is unlikely to play against the 76ers on Wednesday due to a sore right ankle. This opens up opportunities for Kenyon Martin Jr. to produce great value in DFS lineups, as he has posted double-digit scoring outings across 30+ minutes in each of his last two games.
After Christian Wood played 35 minutes in a Sunday night contest against the Knicks, the Rockets C said he was "unsure" if we would be able to play Houston's next few games on Wednesday and Friday.
The last time the Rockets were without Wood, the team had a mere seven active players and slotted in F/C Kelly Olynyk in the starting lineup. Expect Olynyk to be the primary center as the team uses an ensemble of players to fill out the rest of Wood's minutes.
