Clint Capela (thumb) is probable for Thursday’s game against the Clippers.
Despite have an excellent overall season (top-40) the big man has been trending down recently. The 23-year-old barely produced top-160 value over the last two weeks and his minutes dropped to a lowly 23.4 per game over the last four games. This could coincide with his declining percentages from the stripe over the last four games (.235) and maybe the Rockets don’t feel like they can trust him in crunch time to hit those. The Rockets also like playing small often with Luc Mbah a Moute logging time at center. He’ll likely turn things around somewhat, but may not be the top-40 guy you can count on.
