  • Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Off injury report

    Sefolosha (illness) is off the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Celtics.

  • Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Sees spike in minutes

    Sefolosha contributed nine points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds, two steals and one assist in 26 minutes Monday in the Rockets' 126-117 win over the Jazz.

    Playing time was up across the board for most of the Rockets' supporting cast, as Houston was without three big-minute regulars in James Harden (thigh), Russell Westbrook (rest) and Clint Capela (heel). At the very least, Westbrook will be back in action Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, so expect Sefolosha to be one of several players whose minutes take a hit. Sefolosha was averaging only 9.3 minutes in the Rockets' prior five games and failed to leave the bench on one of those occasions.

  • Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Questionable Saturday

    Sefolosha (illness) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Nets, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.

    Sefolosha missed the last two games due to the illness and his status for Saturday's contest remains up in the air. Regardless of his availability, the 35-year-old is unlikely to play a significant role for Houston, having averaged only 6.1 minutes in seven December appearances.

  • Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Officially out Wednesday

    Sefolosha (illness) is inactive for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

    Houston listed Sefolosha as doubtful in advance of the contest, so his inactive status doesn't come as much of a surprise. Sefolosha will thus be sidelined for a second straight game, but he's not a major part of coach Mike D'Antoni's rotation even in times of better health. Sefolosha had played in only four of the Rockets' seven games before the ailment surfaced, averaging six minutes in those appearances.
