Alperen Sengün News
Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun could see more work this season, according to ESPN NBA insider Tim MacMahon. The Rockets dealt Christian Wood to Dallas, so it's evident the team has plenty of faith that the 19-year-old can hold down things in the middle moving ahead. Despite logging only 20.7 minutes per game, Sengun made the most of his time on the floor during his inaugural season, finishing with averages of 9.6 points, 5.5 boards, and 2.6 assists. He may substantially increase his production in 2022-23, although his shoddy shooting percentages need to improve for category managers to benefit fully from his presence on their rosters.
Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun (thigh) has officially been ruled out for Friday night's game against the Sacramento Kings. The rookie is dealing with a left thigh bruise. He suffered the injury on Monday and he hasn't played since. Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen, who broke the news about Sengun, added that the Rockets rookie is "close to returning." So fantasy managers in season-long leagues should hold onto him if possible. Expect for the Rockets to give fellow rookie Usman Garuba another start at center on Friday. Garuba compiled eight points and seven rebounds over 26 minutes in his start against the Kings on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Bruno Fernando came up with a double-double of 17 points and 10 boards on Wednesday. He's a sneaky fantasy option for Friday and should be prioritized over Garuba.
Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun (leg) is questionable to play in Friday's game against the Sacramento Kings. The rookie suffered a left leg injury during Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs and he wound up sitting out during the team's following game on Wednesday. If Sengun plays on Friday, he's a must-start fantasy player, but the Rockets will likely be cautious with him. Usman Garuba filled in as the team's starting center on Wednesday. He logged 26 minutes and put up eight points and seven rebounds. Garuba could provide decent rebounding numbers and potentially some defensive stats on Friday if Sengun is held out, but don't bank on much more than that.
Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun (leg) has been ruled out for Wednesday night's game against the Sacramento Kings. The rookie suffered an injury to his left leg during Monday's game and the team is considering him day-to-day. The Rockets don't have many options at center with both Sengun and Christian Wood (hamstring) sidelined. Usman Garuba could function as an undersized center or we could see Bruno Fernando operate as the team's top center despite the fact that he's barely played since joining the team in February.
