  • Rockets' Fred VanVleet: Hits for 20 in Sunday's loss

    VanVleet ended Sunday's 123-110 loss to the Thunder with 20 points (7-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 38 minutes.

    The veteran point guard missed five games in early February due to an adductor strain, but VanVleet appears to be healthy now. He's scored at least 20 points in back-to-back contests, and in three games since his return to the court, he's gone 12-for-30 (40.0 percent) from beyond the arc while nabbing five total steals.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Double-double against OKC

    Sengun recorded 19 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 29 minutes during Sunday's 123-110 loss to the Thunder.

    It was the 25th double-double of the season for the third-year center, leaving him four short of tying the career high he set in 2022-23. Sengun has been flashing more defensive production of late as well -- over the last five games, he's averaging 18.6 points, 8.2 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.8 steals.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Big double-double in loss

    Smith notched 20 points (6-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 17 rebounds, four assists and one steal across 41 minutes during Sunday's 123-110 loss to the Thunder.

    The 17 boards represented Smith's best performance on the glass since he ripped down 18 back on Dec. 6, also against the Thunder. The second-year forward has produced at least 20 points in four of the last eight games, but he's scored in single digits in three of them as he attempts to find some consistency on offense. Over that stretch, he's averaging 14.8 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.0 threes, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steals, but he's shooting only 39.0 percent from the floor and 32.0 percent from long distance.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Without return timeline

    Coach Ime Udoka said Sunday that Eason (lower leg) still doesn't have a clear return timetable, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.

    Eason hasn't played since New Year's Day and will likely remain out for at least a few more weeks, if not the entire season. Udoka added that Eason and the Rockets are getting multiple opinions on the injury before deciding what's next in Eason's rehab.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Ruled out for Sunday

    Eason (lower leg) is out for Sunday's game against the Thunder.

    Eason hasn't played since Jan. 1 due to a left lower leg injury and will likely be eased back into action with a light role whenever he's formally cleared to suit up. His next chance to play will come in a rematch against Oklahoma City on Feb. 27.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Double-doubles off bench

    Thompson had 15 points (6-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 33 minutes during Friday's 114-110 victory over Phoenix.

    Thompson played off the bench for the second consecutive game with Fred VanVleet back in the starting lineup. Although he's expected to stay in a second-unit role if Houston's usual starters remain healthy, that doesn't mean Thompson can't be a player worth targeting in most fantasy formats, especially if he continues to post the numbers he's been delivering of late. The rookie has four double-doubles over his last seven appearances while averaging 13.8 points, 9.7 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks per game since the beginning of February.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Posts another double-double

    Sengun chipped in 17 points (6-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-8 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and one block in 35 minutes during Friday's 114-110 victory over the Suns.

    Sengun recorded his 23rd double-double of the season, and he dominated down low while taking advantage of Jusuf Nurkic's absence due to an ankle problem. The versatile big man has been one of the top fantasy contributors not only for the Rockets but in the Western Conference as a whole due to his impressive two-way play and his ability to rack up double-doubles with ease while also contributing in peripheral categories. Over his last 10 games, Sengun has averaged 18.1 points, 9.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks across 32.2 minutes per game.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Excellent in win over Phoenix

    Smith supplied 22 points (6-18 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 16 rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals over 41 minutes before fouling out of Friday's 114-110 win over the Suns.

    Smith didn't have his best performance from an efficiency point of view, as he needed 18 shots to score 22 points. Other than that, he delivered a strong all-around effort while making his presence felt on both ends of the court. Smith's growth compared to his rookie year has been noticeable both in fantasy and real life, and his numbers in recent weeks are a strong reflection of that improvement. He has scored at least 20 points in three of his last seven games, a span in which he's averaging 14.0 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steals per contest.

  • Rockets' Jalen Green: Poor shooting display Thursday

    Green recorded 10 points (3-14 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Thursday's 127-105 loss to the Pelicans.

    Green had a rough shooting performance Thursday, but that shouldn't surprise anyone who has been following the Rockets this season, as Green is prone to have efficiency issues. Even though he's averaging 14.4 points per game since the beginning of February, he's also shot 37 percent from the field and a mere 17.4 percent from three-point range in that span.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Scores 22 points off bench

    Thompson chipped in 22 points (9-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists and three blocks across 28 minutes during Thursday's 127-105 loss to the Pelicans.

    Thompson moved to the bench after starting in each of Houston's last five games before the All-Star break, but the move to the second unit didn't translate into a decline in production. Thompson has scored in double digits in five of his seven February appearances, a span in which he's averaging 13.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Sniffs double-double in defeat

    Sengun ended Thursday's 127-105 loss to the Pelicans with 20 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 7-10 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes.

    Sengun finished one rebound shy of posting a double-double, and even though he didn't fill the stat sheet as he's done in other games, he still posted an impressive outing. Sengun is averaging 17.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 0.7 blocks per game since the start of January.

  • Rockets' Cam Whitmore: Posts 13 points in return

    Whitmore (ankle) recorded 13 points (5-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds and two blocks across 24 minutes Thursday in the Rockets' 127-105 loss to the Pelicans.

    After practicing Wednesday without issue, Whitmore was cleared to return from a three-game absence coming out of the All-Star break. The rookie hit double figures in the scoring column for the ninth time in 10 games, but he may not be able to count on reaching 24 minutes regularly in competitive contests. Whitmore should at least have a firm hold on a rotation spot for the foreseeable future while Tari Eason (lower leg) faces a murky timeline for a return.

  • Rockets' Fred VanVleet: Poor numbers in return

    VanVleet (adductor) tallied seven points (2-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, three rebounds and two steals across 30 minutes Thursday in the Rockets' 127-105 loss to the Pelicans.

    Making his return from a five-game absence due to a left adductor strain, VanVleet wasn't on a specific playing-time restriction but ended up seeing six fewer minutes than his season-long average due in large part to the blowout. He wasn't especially productive during his time on the court, but he still finished as Houston's leading assist man and should see his numbers improve as the adductor injury fades further in the rear-view mirror. According to Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle, VanVleet already said before Thursday's game that he plans on playing in both ends of the back-to-back set, so he should be back on the court Friday versus the Suns.
