    Clint Capela was a monster on the boards again on Wednesday, grabbing 18 rebounds to compliment his 14 points, two dimes, a steal and a block.

    Capela is a top-20 asset right now and doesn't show any sign of slowing down. As long as Capela is healthy and on the court, he can be counted on to bring production.

  • Eric Gordon
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon had one of his better games on Tuesday, hitting four treys and scoring 23 points (9-of-19 FGs) in 32 minutes off the bench while adding four rebounds, an assist and a steal.

    Gordon has been reduced to a player that's simply great in threes, good in points and below average everywhere else, most notably in both percentages. He's a good fit on certain teams, but if you roster him, make sure your team is one of them. Clint Capela dropped in 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting, 16 rebounds and two assists in this loss as well.

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) is no longer being listed on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) and PJ Tucker (right shoulder) will play on Tuesday.

    The word comes right from Mike D'Antoni himself, so GMs with weekly lineup locks can feel free to get Capela and Tucker plugged in. Capela's battled heel injuries a few times this season but this latest instance appears to be minor. Tucker was unable to finish Saturday's game but is good to go.

    Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni confirmed that Clint Capela has been ruled out against the Timberwolves on Saturday with a right heel contusion.

    Capela's heel injury won't go away, so that means we get another spot-start from Isaiah Hartenstein. The Rockets' German big man is worth a stream against the lowly Timberwolves' defense, so pick him up if you need a late-week boost to you FG%, blocks and rebounds. As for Capela, continue to monitor his status, but it's certainly concerning that the issue keeps lingering or, even worse, that he's re-aggravated it.

    Capela has double-doubles in 23 of his last 24 games, and 20 rebound games aren't even unusual for him anymore. He is a monster in fantasy and is hovering around first-round value.

    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela was unfazed by his matchup against Joel Embiid on Friday and even excelled with 30 points on 12-of-16 shooting, adding 14 boards, three assists, two steals and one block.

    Capela has come into his own this season and his play is showing how much confidence he's gain in his abilities and his teammates. He's a top-25 asset and is as reliable as they come right now.

    Clint Capela returned from a two-game absence on Tuesday night and delivered 16 points, 10 rebounds and three steals in 30 minutes.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    James Harden (sprained right toe) and Clint Capela (heel bruise) will play in Tuesday's matchup vs. the Nuggets.

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) is planning on suiting up against the Nuggets for Tuesday's New Year's Eve matchup.

    Capela missed the Rocket's back-to-back set over the weekend but seems likely to make his return to close out 2019. Isaiah Hartenstein, who had 19 points, nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks on Sunday, will be relegated back to backup duty if Capela does indeed suit up. Outside of horrifying shooting from the free-throw line, Capela has been a beast with top-13 value on the season between the other eight cats.

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) will not play in Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Capela didn't play in Saturday's game vs. the Nets and he won't play in this one either. Tyson Chandler drew the start vs. the Nets and only managed to put up three points, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 14 minutes. He's not worth streaming or owning and can be left on the wire in all leagues.
