G - HOU - OUT
Rockets G/F Victor Oladipo (injury maintenance) has been ruled out of Sunday’s game vs. the Grizzlies.
The Rockets are on the front end of a back-to-back, so head coach Stephen Silas will keep Oladipo out against the Grizzlies. This should open up more opportunities for Danuel House Jr. and Eric Gordon.
Victor Oladipo finished with 27 points (9-21 FG, 4-10 3PT, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists, and two steals in 36 minutes during Friday's loss to the Raptors.
This was an encouraging showing for Oladipo, who has been pretty inconsistent during his brief tenure in Houston. He appears to be fully healthy and should continue to see elite usage behind John Wall for as long as Christian Wood remains out. He'll look to continue improving in Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.
Victor Oladipo posted 17 points (8-20 FG, 1-8 3PT, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one turnover in 32 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Cavaliers.
Oladipo made his return after missing the last four games due to a foot/ankle injury and immediately saw 32 minutes of action. While he struggled with his shot, he was able to contribute solid numbers across the board and his offensive game should only improve as he gets reacclimated. He'll look to get in a rhythm for Friday's game against the Raptors.
Houston Rockets SG Victor Oladipo (foot) has been listed as starting Wednesday against the Cavaliers.
Oladipo has missed the last four games with foot soreness after taking a hard fall against the Heat a couple of weeks back. His return to the starting lineup Wednesday gives a big boost to the Rockers. John Wall is likely the player that takes the biggest hit in terms of his usage rating.
Rockets guard Victor Oladipo is listed as questionable to play in Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.
Oladipo has missed the last four games with foot soreness after taking a hard fall against the Heat a couple of weeks back. If he's able to return, it will likely send Eric Gordon, who is also questionable, back to the bench in a sixth-man role.
