David Nwaba News
Houston Rockets shooting guard/small forward David Nwaba (wrist) was expected to miss upwards of six weeks after undergoing wrist surgery, but in a turn of events, he has been deemed questionable to play in Friday's game against Utah. The move seems perfunctory at this stage, as the Rockets are extremely unlikely to thrust Nwaba into game action with his tag likely a means of reaching the eligible players limit, thereby not forfeiting the contest. Nwaba has averaged a career-high 9.4 PPG this season, shooting 48.1 percent overall, but he shouldn't be expected to take the floor and contribute for the foreseeable future.
Houston Rockets forward David Nwaba (wrist) is not expected to be back on the court anytime soon. On Wednesday, he underwent right wrist surgery and should be sidelined at least six weeks. That is a crushing blow to a Rockets team that is already missing Eric Gordon (knee) and Danuel House (knee). Fantasy managers should expect Sterling Brown and Ben McLemore to have decent short-term value while Houston is shorthanded.
Houston Rockets wing David Nwaba scored a team-high 22 points on 9-for-16 shooting in Monday's loss to the Chicago Bulls. He was 1-for-3 from deep and also added nine rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Houston lost their eighth game in a row on Monday and have struggled to find their offense at times, averaging the eighth-fewest points per game. Maybe it'll show up Wednesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who allow the ninth-most points per game. With Nwaba scoring in double figures in three of the last four games and posting nine or more rebounds in three consecutive games, he'll be an intriguing DFS option on that slate.
Houston Rockets point guard John Wall (back) and shooting guard/small forward David Nwaba (ankle) have both been cleared to play in Saturday's game versus San Antonio, adding to the team's backcourt depth. Wall has seen his minutes total kept in check over the past two weeks as he deals with myriad ailments, whereas Nwaba has been sidelined for the team's last three contests. Without Christian Wood (ankle) available, both Wall and Nwaba could see additional shot attempts funneled in their direction. Both remain finicky DFS selections as they work through injuries but can be rostered in season-long formats should fantasy managers see fit.
