  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul went off on Sunday with 25 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists and six triples in a 117-102 win over the Wolves.

    He shot 8-of-12 from the field, made all three of his attempts from the stripe and added a steal to the box score. James Harden put up 20 points and 10 assists on 8-of-24 shooting. This is definitely one of the most reliable backcourts to own in fantasy along with the Warriors duo.

  • Clint Capela - C - Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela dominated against the Wolves on Sunday in a 117-102 victory with 20 points and 13 rebounds on 8-of-11 shooting.

    Although his value is just top-50 over the past month, he is still a borderline top-20 value in 9-cat leagues for the season and is a very reliable center option. He does not have much competition for big man minutes, so he is forced to play minutes in the upper-30's when it is a close game against a solid big man. Expect a strong finish to the season for Capela.

  • Austin Rivers - G - Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers did not play on Sunday against the Wolves due to rest according to head coach Mike D'Antoni.

    Rivers has been a nice spark off the bench for the Rockets, but D'Antoni decided to rest him for this one. However, he can be left on the wire as he does not hold much value outside the deepest of leagues.

  • Kenneth Faried - F/C - Houston Rockets

    Head coach Mike D’Antoni said that he sat Kenneth Faried due to rest on Sunday against the Wolves.

    Clint Capela is back, so most of Faried’s value is gone for standard formats. He can be seen as a deep-league rebounding and field goal shooting specialist. Faried should return to the court for the next game.

  • James Harden - G - Houston Rockets

    James Harden will play on Sunday against the Twolves.

    Harden was questionable but we now have confirmation that the league's leading scorer will be out there electifying the crowds while bolstering his fantasy owners teams.

  • James Harden - G - Houston Rockets

    James Harden (cervical strain) is expected to play on Sunday against the Wolves.

    Harden's still technically questionable, but Mike D'Antoni said "we think he's playing." Check back for another update in the next 90 minutes or so but it looks like fantasy owners will be graced by The Beard this evening.

  • Isaiah Hartenstein - F/C - Houston Rockets

    Isaiah Hartenstein (right Achilles soreness) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game.

    Hartenstein has been out of the rotation either way but has missed the last three games with this injury.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon will start against the Wolves on Sunday, moving Danuel House to the bench.

    House started on Friday but the return of Chris Paul (rest) will reshuffle the rotation a bit. Things may still change with James Harden (neck) questionable for tomorrow, but as of right now it looks like the Rockets will be at full strength. Mike D'Antoni said that House will play a "significant" role in the rotation whether he starts or comes off the bench, so deep-league players can feel free to scoop him up.

  • James Harden - G - Houston Rockets

    James Harden (cervical strain) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Wolves.

    Harden missed one game in late February with the same injury. Chris Paul is returning tomorrow night, which lessens the need for Harden to gut it out, but it would be a major blow to fantasy owners in the final day of their matchup. There would be tons of usage available for all the Rockets if Harden sat. Check back tomorrow for another update.

  • Clint Capela - C - Houston Rockets

    The Rockets came through with a 108-102 win over the Suns on Friday and Clint Capela was a force for them in the paint with 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting, adding 11 rebounds one steal and one block.

    Capela has been a reliable top-30 play this season and should be one of the better big men to own down the stretch. Kenneth Faried logged 15 minutes off the bench and chipped in nine points and six rebounds.

  • James Harden - G - Houston Rockets

    James Harden was up to his old tricks in Friday's win over the Suns as he flirted with a triple-double with 41 points on 12-of 25 shooting with nine rebounds, 11 dimes, three triples, six steals and three blocks.

    The Beard was a monster on both ends of the floor tonight, sans Chris Paul (rest). Harden's been rock-solid as the best player in fantasy this season and is making a legitimate case to win the MVP award once again.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul will be rested for Friday's game against the Suns.

    This is a routine maintenance day for a cornerstone player for this Rockets squad. Eric Gordon will get more run alongside James Harden and should have a chance to put up a nice line especially for daily players. The other starter is yet to be determined.

  • PJ Tucker - F - Houston Rockets

    PJ Tucker did not do much on Wednesday as he had three points and two rebounds on 1-of-7 from the field in 35 minutes of action in a loss to the Warriors.

    All seven of his field goal attempts were from deep and all he added to the box score was a steal and a block. He is a top-80 value on the season in 9-cat leagues despite averaging just 7.6 points and can be classified as a steals and 3-point specialist.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul put up 24 points on 7-of-12 shooting with six rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in a loss to the Warriors on Wednesday.

    He made all eight of his attempts from the line and saw 33 minutes of action. This is the first time in the past 10 seasons that Paul is not a top-10 fantasy player, but he still remains a reliable top-25 and point guard option.

  • James Harden - G - Houston Rockets

    James Harden dropped 29 points with 10 assists on 10-of-23 shooting in 37 minutes in a loss to the Warriors on Wednesday.

    The Rockets were 3-0 against the Warriors prior to this game and could not finish the season sweep despite the absence of Kevin Durant for the Dubs. He went just 2-of-12 from deep and 7-of-9 from the line. Harden has had a lot of games better than this one this season, which says a lot about how truly great of a season he is having. He also passed Dwight Howard on the all-time scoring list during this game.
