Garrison Mathews News
Houston Rockets shooting guard/small forward Garrison Mathews has been bumped into the starting five for Sunday night's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. He will be taking Eric Gordon's place in the starting five. Gordon was originally slated to start alongside Jalen Green, Kevin Porter Jr., Jae'Sean Tate and Christian Wood, but the team made this chance just about 10 minutes before tip-off. Mathews has started 21 games this year. Over those starts, he's played 32 minutes per game and averaged 13.3 points and 2.8 three-pointers per game.
Houston Rockets point/shooting guard Dennis Schroder (ankle) and small forward Garrison Mathews (ankle) have been deemed questionable to play in Wednesday's game against the Lakers with respective ankle sprains. Schroder has missed the past four contests due to the ailment, which has opened up additional minutes for Josh Christopher on the second unit. Mathews sustained his injury early in Monday's outing, leading to an 0-for-5 shooting performance. Eric Gordon, Kevin Porter Jr., and Jalen Green would all stand to have elevated offensive roles if either Schroder or Mathews is held out. Check back prior to tip-off for the final word on the Rockets' backcourt.
Houston Rockets small forward Garrison Mathews (ankle) has been cleared to take the floor for Tuesday's contest against the Clippers despite battling a sprained left ankle. Mathews enters play having knocked down multiple triples in four straight outings, a streak that he will likely have a decent chance at extending with Kevin Porter Jr. (ankle) ruled out Tuesday. Mathews averaged 11.7 PPG across 10 February contests, with his role among the second unit safe for the time being. He faces a stingy matchup in LA, which ranks in the bottom third of the league in defensive efficiency, made three-point field goals (11.6), and opponents' three-point percentage (33.8%) this season.
Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. (ankle) and forward Garrison Mathews (ankle) are both listed as questionable ahead of Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Porter sat out the team's most recent game, which was also against the Clippers, on Sunday due to a left ankle sprain. Mathews, meanwhile, suffered a left ankle sprain of his own in Sunday's contest. Mathews still managed to put together a solid outing in the game, going for 17 points, four three-pointers and two steals. In Porter's absence on Sunday, Dennis Schroder jumped into the starting five and wound up two rebounds shy of a triple-double. Schroder will be a strong DFS or streaming option if Porter sits again on Tuesday.
