Sam Dekker apparently sprained his left ankle on the final play of the season and is in a walking boot.
This is nothing serious as the Rocket’s season is over and Dekker should be fine way before training camp. All of the Rocket’s rotation players, minus Nene, are under contract for next season, so Dekker will likely re-assume his role at the team’s top backup forward. He played in 81 games this season and produced 6.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.8 triples in 17.9 minutes and will remain off the fantasy radar next season.
