Houston Rockets Roster
- Western Southwest
- Toyota Center
Houston Rockets forward Danuel House (personal) could miss the rest of the playoff series against the Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA is currently doing an investigation on House allegedly sneaking a female into the bubble. It doesn't sound like he'll get back on the court until the NBA makes their decision. That means, Jeff Green, Austin Rivers, and Ben McLemore will see more playing time coming their way.
Houston Rockets forward Danuel House (personal) was unable to suit up for Tuesday's Game 3 against the Los Angeles Lakers. He is dealing with a personal issue, so it's unclear if he'll suit up next game. Robert Covington (face), Jeff Green, Austin Rivers, and Ben McLemore would benefit if House is out. Covington is the best fantasy option out of the bunch.
Houston Rockets forward Robert Covington (face) is expected to be available for Game 4 against the Los Angeles Lakers. It doesn't sound like his nose is broken and Covington was able to pass the concussion protocol. Danuel House (personal) is questionable for Game 4, which could mean big minutes for Covington. Fantasy owners should check back for another update.
Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook (quad) is available for Game 5 against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday. This marks the first time that Westbrook will be able to play during this series. He could be somewhat restricted since he has not played in a game in over two weeks. James Harden, Eric Gordon, and Danuel House will lose some value with Westbrook returning. He'll be a somewhat risky DFS option since it's unclear if he'll be restricted or not.
Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook (quad) is expected to play in Saturday's Game 5 matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He has been given some extra time to prepare and reportedly looked explosive during Thursday's scrimmage. James Harden and Eric Gordon will lose some value and usage with Westbrook likely returning. There should be more information known closer to tip-off.
