The Rockets have recalled Chinanu Onuaku, Kyle Wiltjer and Isaiah Taylor ahead of Game 1 against the Thunder.
None of the three players are expected to get much playing time during the series. Onuaku did receive a small opportunity late in the season by playing 13.9 minutes in three of the last four games. He probably has the most upside of the bunch as he averaged 13.6 points, 10.6 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.6 blocks in the D-League this season. Taylor and Wiltjer were both undrafted rookies who had solid D-League numbers as well.Taylor averaged 21.0 points to go with 6.0 assists and Wiltjer knocked down 3.7 triples per game for 20.5 points per game.
