Robert Covington struggled to reach seven points (3-of-10 FG) on Sunday vs. the Magic, but he did put together four rebounds and four blocks
It was largely a night to forget for Covington and the entire Rockets' roster. While the blocks helped give his manager's something, he had zero 3-pointers and steals, while also picking up four turnovers. Just throw this performance in the trash bin and send him back out there on Tuesday against the Wolves. Danuel House had a similarly empty line with six points (2-of-7 FG), three assists, one 3-pointer and three steals. House is an end of the roster type in 12-team formats, but you can probably find a hotter option on most wires as we are entering the silly season for NBA rotations.

Jeff Green played like it was 2014-15 on Saturday, waking up with 20-point performance on 10-of-15 shooting, adding eight rebounds, two assists, four steals and one block.
Unforturnately, Green missed all three attempts from deep, narrowly dodging a full line. Still, the combined five steals and blocks were surely a welcome surprise for his deep-league owners. His strong game came at the expense of Danuel House, who underwhelmed with three points on 1-of-4 shooting (all from deep), three rebounds and two assists.

Danuel House scored 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a triple on Thursday.
House was the best wing player for the Rockets which isn't saying much as Robert Covington (three points, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks) couldn't get things going on offense and Jeff Green (17 points with two rebounds, one steal and three triples) can't be trusted on the defensive end. The Rockets have been crushed in two consecutive games now and the small-ball questions are going to arise, but the team should bounce back against the Hornets on Saturday.

Danuel House scored 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting to go with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and four triples on Monday.
House benefited from a ton of open 3-point looks thanks to the Knicks trapping James Harden and creating a wall against Russell Westbrook. He won't always pop off like this, but his value is definitely higher now that the Rockets have fully committed to playing small.

Jeff Green made his debut for the Rockets on Thursday and looked surprisingly spry given that he's 33 years young, chiming in with 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting with four 3s, four rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes.
Before you go rushing off to grab Green, note that there was so much garbage time in this one, you could have built a landfill. He was likely seeing extra run to get acclimated with his new team and system. Leave him on the wire for now. Green's extra time on the floor came at the expense of Danuel House, who played just 19 minutes and was able to tally 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting (three 3s) with three rebounds and one assist. House remains a standard-league hold at this time.

It was a rare game without a steal for Danuel House on Tuesday, but he did put up 17 points (5-of-11 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) , nine rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes in a win over the Celtics.
House has been playing very well lately and is locked into the starting role again. He's an excellent source of threes and steals and looks like he'll return to being a middle-round player.

Danuel House kept it going on Sunday vs. the Jazz, going for ten points (3-of-10 FG), five rebounds, two 3-pointers and four steals.
House keeps finding ways to be productive, and his combination of steals and 3-pointers is maintaining his standard league value. He picked up 36 minutes tonight and is worth a pickup in standard leagues. The P.J. Tucker at center experiment continued as he went for nine points (3-of-5 FG), four assists, three rebounds and three 3-pointers. Tucker is a low-end option in 12-team formats as he is going to take a beating at center and it is unclear if all of the minutes he receives will translate into real value.

Danuel House scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting to go with one rebound, three assists, one steal, one block and two triples on Thursday.
House logged 28 minutes as a starter tonight, but eventually Robert Covington should overtake him in that role. He'll hold some low-end value for now and is worth owning to see if he can keep it up.

In what may have been Danuel House's best game of his career, he put up 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting with nine rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and six 3-pointers in 42 minutes.
The six triples tied a career-high for House. Russell Westbrook (left thumb sprain) was absent for this game, which had some affect on House's offensive opportunities. House is now in the top-60/35 (8-cat/9-cat) for the last two weeks, and aside from some elevated steal numbers, nothing is unsustainable. Next to him, P.J. Tucker was also excellent with 13 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes with Clint Capela (right heel contusion) out.

Danuel House delivered 12 points, 12 rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers in Sunday's win over the Pelicans.
House was a middle-round guy earlier in the year and though he's fallen off since then, it may be time to scoop him up and hope that you're buying on the ground floor of his latest hot streak. With Clint Capela hurt and a big name in the rumor mill, perhaps House finds more minutes down the stretch as well.
February 1, 2020, 1:08 pmClint CapelaC, Houston Rockets
Clint Capela (right heel contusion) will not play against the Pelicans on Sunday.
Capela was held out on Friday and rather than deploy Isaiah Hartenstein, Mike D'Antoni successfully went with the smallest lineup since 1963. The 6'5" P.J. Tucker started at center with Danuel House and Thabo Sefolosha occupying the frontcourt. Whether the Rockets decide to go small again on Sunday or not, P.J. Tucker will get a ton of minutes regardless.

Danuel House Jr. was a major contributor for the Rockets in Friday's win over the Mavs, putting up 14 points (4-6 3-PT) with two steals and two blocks.
The Rockets didn't play a guy over 6'6" tonight, the first time that has happened in the NBA in 55 years. House played most of his minutes at the SF spot tonight but was able to make the most of the big uptick in minutes tonight. As long as Clint Capela is out, it's anyone's guess who might contribute for the Rockets on a given night. He's worth a look in 12 team leagues (and bigger leagues), especially if you need threes, just because we've seen him perform for stretches in the past. On the season he holds top-150 value.

Danuel House will get the start on Friday against the Mavs.
With Clint Capela (right heel contusion) out of action, P. J. Tucker is starting at center and Danuel House will join the starting lineup as the power forward. Tucker and House will both make for nice DFS options with Capela absent.

Clint Capela (right heel contusion) is available on Wednesday vs. the Blazers.
Capela missed Monday's contest but will return on Wednesday and should be back to his usual minutes. Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker and Danuel House Jr. will all take a hit with James Harden and Capela returning on Wednesday.

Danuel House started and logged a game-high 45 minutes on Monday, scoring 21 points on 6-of-14 shooting to go with 11 boards, two assists, five steals and two triples.
House looked much more aggressive out there tonight on both ends of the floor, as displayed by his stocks. Maybe this game will snap him out of his cold spell as the Rockets desperately need him to stay this aggressive on offense.
