    Ben McLemore managed to return to Tuesday's game after needing to go to the locker room to attend to a laceration near his eye, finishing the game with 11 points (4-of-9 shooting), one rebound, one assist and three treys.

    It was good to see McLemore manage to return. He's still just a deep-league 3s streamer, unfortunately.

    Ben McLemore suffered a cut near his eye on Tuesday and headed to the locker room to get it checked out.

    McLemore has been starting and producing low-end value as a 3s specialist. His absence could mean more minutes for Danuel House (illness) when he returns.

    Per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, Danuel House (illness) will not play in Wednesday's matchup with the Spurs.

    With House sitting out another game, it should be Ben McLemore getting the nod at SF again. McLemore had a monster game in House's absence on Saturday with 24 points, 13 rebounds, one steal and six triples on 9-of-14 shooting from the field. He makes for a solid streamer to see if he can repeat that career performance.

    Danuel House is officially questionable for Tuesday's game due to illness.

    House missed Saturday's game and didn't practice on Monday, so this seems like a pretty severe illness. Ben McLemore scored a season-high 24 points on Saturday and is a nice short-term option if House is out again.

    Ben McLemore caught fire to score 24 points, and added a career-high 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and tied a career-high six treys in Saturday's 158-111 win over the Hawks.

    McLemore had open looks all night as the Hawks were double-teaming James Harden. He got the start with Danuel House (illness) out and played 34 minutes. This is a sell-high opportunity as House is expected to return soon and cut into his playing time.

    Danuel House (illness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Hawks.

    Ben McLemore is expected to draw the start in place of House, while Gary Clark should see extended run when the Rockets play small ball. The Rockets have a bit of a bug running through their locker room and hit Clint Capela as well. Both players should be day-to-day going forward.

    Danuel House (illness) is being considered doubtful for Saturday's contest against the Hawks.

    It's possible that House caught the same bug that Clint Capela is dealing with and it's a shame because he was coming off of his best game of the season. He dropped 23 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and four triples in 34 minutes on Wednesday but if he can't suit up tonight then expect Ben McLemore to start in his place.

    Ben McLemore started for an injured Danuel House (shoulder) on Friday and had a good game for himself, recording 14 points on 4-of-9 shooting (all from deep) and 2-for-2 shooting from the line with two rebounds one assist and two steals.

    McLemore's value is sitting on thin ice with House expected to be back on Sunday. Consider looking through the wire for a potential replacement in case you picked him up recently.

    Danuel House Jr. is listed as doubtful ahead of Friday's contest vs. the Clippers with a sore left shoulder.

    House has had an excellent start to the season, providing mid-round value thus far. If he is forced to miss the contest, expect Ben McLemore and Austin Rivers to see an uptick in minutes but neither are recommended pickups outside of much deeper leagues.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    After missing Saturday's game for rest purposes, Russell Westbrook will start on Monday.

    Westbrook is filling the stat sheet this season with 21.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game. Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore should see their fantasy values drop.

    SG, Houston Rockets

    Ben McLemore got the start and scored 20 points, along with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and four treys on Saturday.

    The Rockets were missing Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, Danuel House and Clint Capela so McLemore had a lot more opportunity. He is still only a deep-league player with Westbrook and House not expected to be out for long.

  • Ben McLemore
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Ben McLemore dropped 21 points and four threes in Friday's win over the Pacers.

    McLemore went 6-of-13 from the field in his 33 minutes, and given the state of Houston's wing depth he might be getting this sort of workload regularly over the next few games. He definitely put himself on the deep-league map with this one but we wouldn't get too excited.

    Danuel House (back) is doubtful to play against the Pacers on Friday.

    Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore have been receiving more minutes in the rotation and could provide some short term value in 3-pointers while House is out.

    Ben McLemore drew the start in place of Danuel House (back) and Eric Gordon (knee surgery) on Wednesday, scoring eight points to go with five rebounds, an assist, a steal and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

    McLemore is set to see increased run with Eric Gordon sidelined for the next six weeks. However, he won't be the starter once Danuel House is able to return from injury. The extra run he will see also doesn't really put him on the fantasy radar either, aside from the deepest of leagues.

  • Danuel House
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Danuel House (back) will not play on Wednesday and Ben McLemore will start in his place.

    The Rockets have extremely limited depth so McLemore is getting a big chance to earn more work down the line here. He's on the deep-league radar as a potential streamer, though House is said to be day-to-day going forward. House should be held in all formats.
