Isaiah Hartenstein (sprained left ankle) will not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Spurs.
Hartenstein also dealt with a right ankle injury in training camp. He was said to be leading the backup center battle with Marquese Chriss but Chriss has put up some intriguing numbers in the preseason so far. Hartenstein has impressed with his hustle, however, and the Rockets are running out of time to make a final decision here — it doesn't help that both players are out on Sunday. Whoever wins the job should be able to secure 12-15 mpg off the bench at minimum and would be up for deep league consideration.
