Alperen Sengün News
Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun (back) is available for Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors. This is good news after Sengun was considered a game-time decision heading into this game. Luckily, he has been cleared to play and it doesn't sound like he's going to be limited at all during this contest. He should resume his role in the starting five, while Jock Landale is the primary backup off the bench. Fantasy managers should feel safe putting Sengun back in their lineups for this game.
Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun (back) is considered a game-time decision heading into Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors. It sounds like the big man is going to test out his back pregame and see if he's still dealing with discomfort. The Rockets have already ruled out Tari Eason (rest) so they could be shorthanded for this game. That being said, Jabari Smith Jr. could be an interesting streaming option if Sengun is forced to sit out. Also, Jalen Green and Jock Landale would be asked to do more on offense. Fantasy managers will have to check back before tip-off for another update.
Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Sengun finds himself on the injury report due to a left ankle sprain. This doesn't sound like a long term issue, but Sengun could end up missing a game or two. Jock Landale would likely slide into the starting five if Sengun is unable to play. He'd probably see heavy minutes due to the fact the Rockets are thin at center. That being said, Landale could be an interesting streaming option if Sengun sits out.
Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun is on the right "path" with his development, according to general manager Rafael Stone, who recently watched him play for Turkey in a pre-Olympic pre-qualifying tournament. "Alpi is on the path we want him to be on. I thought he was moving really, really well," Stone said. "I thought his decision-making was good. I liked his defensive effort, overall. Sengun looked brilliant at times for the Rockets last season, and Stone expects him to develop further in 2023-24. "With all our young guys, not just Alpi, we are expecting and demanding constant improvement. I thought he looked really good. I was really happy with it. And he's been in the gym. He's in really good shape. And he's really excited to get going, too." The talented big man averaged 14.8 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 3.9 assists during his second NBA season, so he's already become somebody fantasy managers must keep an eye on.
