Trevor Ariza (sprained left foot), Tarik Black (right hip contusion) and Nene (Left Achilles Soreness) are all listed as questionable to face the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Ariza being upgraded to questionable is a great sign as he was originally ruled out for the Rockets next two games but has “improved rapidly” and did some shooting on Friday. P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah A Moute both went off last game in Ariza and Nene’s absence, playing 37 and 40 minutes, respectively. Luc Mbah A Moute scored 12 points with eight rebounds, two steals, three blocks and two triples. Tucker had nine points, 13 rebounds, three triples and a block. Both will continue being very strong daily options until Ariza returns.
