Houston Rockets

Western Southwest

Russell Westbrook elevated his game in a 131-124 win over the Timberwolves, posting 45 points (16-27 FG, 13-13 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds, one steal, and three turnovers.

Fantasy Impact: Westbrook has been playing out of his mind since the turn of the new year, averaging nearly 32 PPG, 8.5 APG, and 8.1 RPG. His efficiency in 2020 has reached a new gear as well, hitting over 53% of his 24 shots per game. One of the biggest factors in this uptick is his shot selection; he has only attempted a single three-pointer in his last four games. Westbrook is a lock for every fantasy format you can think of when the Rockets take on the Nuggets this Sunday.

James Harden finished with 27 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 13-15 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals across 31 minutes in the Rockets’ 121-105 win over the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Harden's rough offensive slump continued Wednesday as he finished with 27 points thanks in large part to 13 free throws. Across his last four games, the league's leading scorer has turned in 25.8 points per game on 35.1 percent shooting from the floor and 15.8 percent shooting from downtown. Harden's healthy assist and rebound totals have kept his value in elite territory, though the recent streak is certainly concerning. He'll have a chance to get right on Friday, when the Rockets face the Wolves.

Clint Capela scored eight points (4-9 FG) with 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal, and three blocks in Saturday’s loss to the Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: Capela did not produce his normal game but still ranks 27 in 9-cat leagues for the season averaging 14.4 points, 14.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists, one steal, and 1.7 blocks per game. Next up, Monday against OKC.

Eric Gordon furnished 20 points (7-18 FG, 6-13 3Pt), two rebounds and an assist over 31 minutes in the Rockets’ 117-107 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon stroked six more triples Wednesday, and he's been hot from beyond the arc since returning to the lineup. In his last seven games, Gordon has averaged 17.3 points and 3.9 threes at a 39.1 percent clip. If you're in need of three-point shooting, look no further.

P.J. Tucker had another bizarre game in a 121-110 loss to the Grizzlies on Tuesday, registering zero points (0-1 FG), seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, and three turnovers in 38 minutes of action.

Fantasy Impact: For the fourth time this season, Tucker has recorded zero points despite playing at least 30 minutes. His lack of shooting volume makes it difficult for fantasy owners to insert him into starting lineups. Leave him out when the Rockets play tonight against the Trail Blazers.

Category: Game Recaps


Ben McLemore provided 14 points (5-12 FG, 4-10 3Pt), three rebounds and two steals across 38 minutes in Tuesday's loss to Memphis.

Fantasy Impact: McLemore continues to start at Small Forward over Danuel House Jr. and outproduced him again in this one. Although the 38 minutes may be a little high due to Russell Westbrook (rest) being out, McLemore seems to have a secure starting role for the foreseeable future.

Austin Rivers produced 10 points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3PT, 3-4 FT), five assists and two rebounds in 27 minutes on Tuesday night against the Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact: Rivers entered the starting lineup for Westbrook while he rested Tuesday night. This game could've been much worse for Rivers as he had an injury scare early in the game. He should have a few more spot starts throughout the season and could be worth streaming in those starts. However, Rivers can be ignored tomorrow night as Westbrook will be back in action at home against the Trail Blazers.

Isaiah Hartenstein provided 17 points (8-9 FG, 1-2 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist, five blocks and two steals across 27 minutes in the Rockets win over the Timberwolves Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Hartenstein got the start in place of Clint Capela (heel) and capitalized greatly, generating a very efficient double-double. Although Capela's injury doesn't seem to be serious, Hartenstein has shown he can be a solid replacement if necessary.

Danuel House Jr. finished with a team-high 22 points (10-for-18 FG, 2-for-5 3Pt, 0-for-0 FT), six boards, and three assists in 32 minutes of action in a loss to the Pelicans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: House was able to capitalize with Harden, Westbrook, and Capela all out of the lineup. House remains a deeper league option but could start losing value with Eric Gordon back.

Chris Clemons and the Rockets agreed to a three-year deal on Thursday. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Clemons is a solid enough role player to garner a three-year deal when his two-way deal expired. Clemons will get some starts here and there if multiple starters are out of the lineup and be a DFS option in those games.

Tyson Chandler (illness) will not play Monday against the Kings. (Source: Cayleigh Griffin on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Chandler will miss his third consecutive game due to an illness. He is only averaging 7 minutes a game and his absence does not impact Houston's rotation.

Category: Injury Updates


Thabo Sefolosha compiled seven points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3PT) three rebounds, two steals, and one assist across Saturday’s 158-111 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Sefolsha logged a season-high two steals and played double figures in minutes for the seventh time in eight games. With Daniel House and Eric Gordon sidelined, Sefolosha has seen an uptick in minutes. Sefolosha can be used as a streamer in deep league formats. The Rockets next scheduled game is Tuesday, away against the Spurs.

Ryan Anderson has been waived by the Houston Rockets on Monday. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson is far from fantasy relevance as he's played just 14 minutes all season. Anderson will look to latch onto another team but that could prove difficult. Expect Houston to add another wing player.

Iman Shumpert signed with the Nets on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski reports. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: According to Woj, Brooklyn has an extra roster spot available until Wilson Chandler's suspension is up. Shump provides some depth on the wing while Caris LeVert (thumb) is out, though he's unlikely to see playing time beyond the low-teens in Brooklyn's rotation.

Green had surgery on his broken left foot and will miss approximately six months while rehabbing. (Source: Houston Rockets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: That means he's unlikely to see the court in 2019-20. Green's departure from the lineup probably won't move the needle much on guys like Eric Gordon and Danuel House, who already had established roles coming into the season.
