While there is no official timetable on Trevor Ariza, he’s said to be “getting close” to returning but Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports that the team may just hold him out until after the All-Star break.
Ariza would miss three more games in that scenario, which seems like the likely outcome. In his absence, there will be added run for Luc Mbah a Moute, Gerald Green, P.J. Tucker and perhaps even newcomer Joe Johnson. Mbah a Moute and Green are the best bets for fantasy value, though LMAM probably has the higher floor given Green’s streakiness. Of course, the two also provide completely different stats so you don’t really need to weigh one against the other if you know what categories you need.
