In the wake of Gerald Green's broken left foot, the Rockets will take a closer look at Ben McLemore.
The team has been happy with McLemore's work so far, with Mike D'Antoni saying, "He has played well and we'll keep looking at him." The Rockets have a thin bench and Green was shaping up as the primary backup at shooting guard, so his minutes and shots are now up for grabs. McLemore will have to compete with guys like Danuel House and Thabo Sefolosha for wing minutes but if he was ever going to reestablish himself in the league, this looks like his best chance. Managers in 30-team leagues can consider McLemore a late-round pick, though he may be able to get himself on the radar in shallower formats over time.
