Ben McLemore News
Houston Rockets guard/forward Ben McLemore (ankle) is available to play Friday against the Detroit Pistons. McLemore will make his return to the court after a two-game absence, but will have a ton of competition for minutes with the Rockets getting healthier. With John Wall (knee) back in action, Kevin Porter Jr. will be the main facilitator off the bench and Kenyon Martin Jr. should also see a big role. McLemore can be safely left on waivers in season long leagues.
Houston Rockets point guard John Wall (knee) and shooting guard/small forward Ben McLemore (ankle) have both picked up questionable designations for Friday's contest against Detroit. Wall has been circling a return in the near future, while McLemore has missed the team's two previous outings. Mired in an 18-game losing streak, the Rockets' depth chart has been thrown into flux with Kevin Porter Jr. becoming the team's preeminent fantasy asset without Wall available. Sterling Brown would stand to see an elevated role as well in the case that Wall/McLemore are once unavailable. Fantasy managers will want to check back prior to tip-off to get the final word on the duo's status as it figures to be pertinent to how Houston's rotations shake out.
Houston Rockets guard Ben McLemore (ankle) has been ruled out Wednesday against the Golden State Warriors. McLemore missed the first leg of the back-to-back as well and Kevin Porter Jr. was given a ton of minutes. With Victor Oladipo (rest) out as well, Porter should see huge usage in the backcourt Wednesday. The good news for the Rockets is they get Christian Wood (ankle) and Danuel House Jr. (knee) back after their respective injuries. It will be interesting to see how Porter and Wood can mesh together on the court moving forward.
Houston Rockets forward Danuel House Jr. (knee) and guard Ben McLemore (ankle) are listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Golden State Warriors. House has missed five straight games, so another absence wouldn't be shocking. Jae'sean Tate and Kevin Porter Jr. would benefit the most, assuming House is out again. McLemore missed Tuesday's game, which resulted in more minutes for Porter. Honestly, it sounds like Porter is going to be a strong option for Wednesday with the Rockets banged up.
