Kevin Porter Jr. News
The Houston Rockets told John Wall to take a seat for the season as they turned the point guard position over to Kevin Porter Jr. to ramp up their rebuild. While it's wise for the franchise's long-term outlook, the young guard needs to take care of the ball far better moving forward. On Sunday against the Celtics, KPJ produced 15 points on 5-for-12 shooting with three rebounds and three assists, but it came with a costly EIGHT turnovers. The third-year guard now has 16 assists to 19 turnovers through three games. Fantasy managers shouldn't sound the alarm yet, but it's a trend to monitor for Week 2 as the Rockets see the Mavericks, Jazz, and Lakers over the next seven days.
Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. confirmed that he is going to be the starting point guard heading into the season. It's assumed the second overall pick Jalen Green will play alongside Porter as the starting shooting guard. Porter mentioned that his goal is to average 10 assists this season. He averaged 8.0 dimes per 36 minutes with John Wall off the court in 2020. The Rockets don't plan on playing Wall and are shutting him down until they can find a trade partner. That means, Porter has a legitimate shot at hitting his goal of 10 assists per game. His fantasy value is certainly on the rise after his surprisingly strong season in Houston last season.
Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz. This was expected since he has been battling an ankle issue and the Rockets have no incentive to play Porter. They will let him rest and wait until he gets back to 100 percent before letting him back on the court. Until then, D.J. Augustin and Armoni Brooks will see more minutes. Neither of them bring enough to the table to be considered reliable streaming choices.
Houston Rockets guard/forward Kevin Porter Jr. (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's matchup against the Bucks. Porter suffered a left ankle sprain during the team's previous contest against the Philadelphia 76ers. With the team also potentially down Kelly Olynyk (ankle), Jae'sean Tate (knee), and Christian Wood (ankle), Kenyon Martin Jr., Armoni Brooks, Anthony Lamb, and Daquan Jeffries should get all the minutes they can handle against Milwaukee.
