Rockets Injury Report:— Jamie Hudson (@JamieHudsonNBCS) January 15, 2020
P.J. Tucker (right shoulder stinger) is questionable; Gerald Green (left cuneiform fracture) and Nene Hilario (left adductor strain) are out.
Tucker suffered a shoulder stinger last week but has played through the injury. He’s mostly been ineffective on offense, failing to score a point in four of his past six games. His rebounding numbers have also taken a dip outside of an easy matchup vs. the Hawks.
Fantasy Basketball Analysis: Houston Rockets
If Tucker is ruled out, the Rockets are extremely thin in the frontcourt. Clint Capela (heel) is fine and expected to play, but isn’t 100%. Danuel House Jr. ($4,100) would likely start at PF and see 30+ minutes considering how thin the Rockets bench is. Ian Hartenstein ($4,000) would also see more minutes and both he and House are good values on DraftKings.
