Donatas Motiejunas finally broke the season in Friday’s win over the Wolves, scoring 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting (including a three) with nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 26 minutes.
Motiejunas had an 18-point, six-rebound game on Monday but turned around and played eight minutes in Wednesday’s game against the Clippers. The game prior to Monday’s game he played five minutes. It’s possible he is turning the corner but it’s also too optimistic to simply ignore his game log. Owners can make a speculative add with any dead weight that they have, and if they’re going to do it then this upcoming four-game week is a good spot to try. After that the Rockets have a pair of three-game weeks that will be tough for low-end players like Motie to negotiate.
