The Rockets will release Brandan Wright, who underwent a procedure on his knee and will be unable to return in time to help the team.
Wright is expected to make a full recovery and will rehab with the Rockets, so they’re not casting him aside after making an effort to court him on the buyout market. Le’Bryan Nash will take his place on the roster. Nash spent a season in Japan after going undrafted out of Oklahoma State and actually signed with the Rockets back in October of 2016 before being waived shortly thereafter. He’s unlikely to play much but he could make his NBA debut in this stint.
