Trevor Ariza    G/F  Rockets

 

 

Trevor Ariza (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday, and he will play on Friday against the Wolves. He's been working out full speed for at least a week, so he should be ready to roll for Friday night and may not even have restrictions. Ariza suffered his injury on Jan. 28, so he's had three weeks to recover. His return means Luc Mbah a Moute, P.J. Tucker and Gerald Green will lose minutes. Ariza should be owned in all leagues.

Troy Williams    F  Rockets

 

 

According to ESPN's Ian Begley, the Knicks "are one of several teams to express interest" in Troy Williams. The Rockets had to waive the 23-year-old forward to make room for Joe Johnson. Williams is expected to make a decision on where to sign "soon," but no other team is mentioned in the report. Williams was buried on the depth chart in Houston, but did have a really strong summer league and could be interesting on a rebuilding team like the Knicks. He's worth monitoring in very deep leagues.

Brandan Wright    F/C  Rockets

 

 

Coach Mike D'Antoni said recently-acquired center Brandan Wright will be "insurance, mostly" for the frontcourt depth. "He’s to me the type of center we like," D'Antoni said. "He’s long, vertical spacing and athletic, can run. He’s another kind of Clint [Capela]. We have Nene and Tarik [Black] being one type and them being another type. That’s the depth. He’s a good guy. He’s going to be a good locker room game. All that’s positive." Wright probably won't see minutes unless the Rockets are missing at least two of the aforementioned guys.

James Harden    G  Rockets

 

 

James Harden scored 28 points with nine rebounds, nine assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Kings during a 100-91 win on Wednesday. The Rockets will enter the break with a 10-game winning streak and they'll be tied with the Warriors -- the Warriors will break the tie one way or another in Portland. The Rockets didn't have their shot tonight and made just 14-of-49 from deep, but their 22-8 FTA edge was the difference. Harden is the MVP right now.

Chris Paul    G  Rockets

 

 

Chris Paul scored 19 points with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday. He did lose some time in the fourth due to a hand injury, but the team doesn't sound concerned. Coach Mike D'Antoni said he could've put CP3 back in the game and Paul himself said he was fine. "Yeah, I'm good," Paul said. While he didn't make the All-Star Team, Paul is playing some of his best ball as the Rockets are knocking on the door for the top seed.

Eric Gordon    G  Rockets

 

 

Eric Gordon (knee contusion) will not play against the Kings on Wednesday. This is a newer injury for Gordon after he battled some back problems earlier this month. Gordon has a few knee injuries on his medical chart, so sitting him out before the break makes sense. Joe Johnson will fill in right away while P.J. Tucker and Gerald Green could take more shots.

Joe Johnson    G/F  Rockets

 

 

Mike D'Antoni said that Joe Johnson "could get some time" Wednesday against the Kings. Johnson should be able to pick up some minutes in Houston while Trevor Ariza (hamstring) is out, but it's unlikely he'll be out there enough to make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops. D'Antoni also said he doesn't anticipate Brandan Wright playing, but Tarik Black will be available.

Nene Hilario    F/C  Rockets

 

 

Nene (rest) will not play on Wednesday against the Kings. It's a back-to-back set and the Rockets are fairly healthy besides Trevor Ariza. Tarik Black should get some backup minutes tonight, but he's not a fantasy option.

Troy Williams    F  Rockets

 

 

Rockets waive F Troy Williams. He's given the Rockets some depth at times over the last two years, but he'll likely be signing elsewhere on a 10-day deal soon.
