Isaiah Hartenstein

  • PJ Tucker
    SF, Houston Rockets

    P.J. Tucker (right shoulder stinger) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

    Tucker managed to play Tuesday's game, finishing with seven rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 38 minutes. He has only averaged 3.5 points per game over his last ten appearances. Isaiah Hartenstein could see more action if Tucker is unavailable.

    Isaiah Hartenstein erupted for 17 points on 8-of-9 shooting with 15 rebounds, one assist, as well as fresh career-highs in steals (two) and blocks (five) in a start for Clint Capela (heel) in Saturday's 139-109 win over the Wolves.

    Wow. This kid can play and play well. As long as Capela is on the sidelines, Hartenstein is a must-own guy, given that he's the only one trusted to take over the starting C duties in Houston.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    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.

    Isaiah Hartenstein kept his foot on the gas in Tuesday's 130-104 win over the Nuggets, dropping 16 points (6-of-8 FG), 12 rebounds, a steal and a block in just 18 minutes of work.

    Hartenstein has leapfrogged Tyson Chandler in the rotation and it's very much deserved. Nobody should expect Hartenstein to keep up this pace now that Clint Capela is back in the lineup, but deep-league GMs should let this ride. If Hartenstein has cemented a rotation spot, he should be able to maintain your interest.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    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.

    Isaiah Hartenstein put up an amazing effort as a starter for the Rockets in Sunday's loss to the Pelicans, delivering 19 points on 9-of-11 shooting with nine rebounds, four assists and two blocs in a team-high 34 minutes.

    Hartenstein is worth a short-term hold while Clint Capela recovers from his right heel contusion. Don't get too attached, as his usage will be near-non-existent once Capela returns.

    Isaiah Hartenstein grabbed 13 boards on Saturday to go with nine points in 24 minutes off the bench.

    Tyson Chandler (three points and five rebounds in 14 minutes) got the start with Clint Capela (right heel contusion) out on Saturday but Hartenstein was the biggest beneficiary. Hartenstein will be worth streaming on Sunday if Capela is out again, but he will fall off the fantasy radar when Capela returns.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) is listed as out against the Nets on Saturday.

    Capela was initially listed as doubtful and perhaps the Rockets are being cautious as this is the first game of a back-to-back as he was able to play through the injury on Monday . Isaiah Hartenstein and Tyson Chandler should fill Capela's minutes with neither seeing enough to garner any fantasy attention. P.J. Tucker should see some center minutes as well.

    The Rockets have sent Isaiah Hartenstein back to the G League on Tuesday.

    Tyson Chandler is on the verge of returning from an illness and Hartenstein will continue getting big minutes down in the G League.

    C, Houston Rockets

    Tyson Chandler (illness) is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game versus the Kings.

    Chandler was a late scratch for Saturday's game and it looks like the veteran will need another games rest. Isaiah Hartenstein will see the bulk of the back up center minutes if Chandler were to rest.

    C, Houston Rockets

    Tyson Chandler (illness) has now been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Suns.

    Chandler was originally expected to play, but Mike D'Antoni said he is getting the night off. Isaiah Hartenstein will operate as Clint Capela's backup.

    Clint Capela (illness) has been downgraded to out ahead of Wednesday's matchup against the Heat.

    With Capela ruled out, Isaiah Hartenstein and Tyson Chandler will see additional minutes with Hartenstein likely having the higher potential. PJ Tucker should also see a boost in value if the Rockets decide to throw out a small-ball lineup.

    Clint Capela (illness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Heat on Wednesday as he battles an illness.

    If Capela is unable to go, Tyson Chandler, Isaiah Hartenstein and P.J. Tucker will all see extra minutes.

    Clint Capela is back in the lineup on Monday after having concussion issues.

    Capela was injured on Wednesday but is ready to return. Isaiah Hartenstein should go back to a diminished role, while Capela is a double-double waiting to happen on a nightly basis.

    Clint Capela (concussion) will not play against the Wolves on Saturday

    Capela was placed into the concussion protocol on Thursday so this is no surprise. Tyson Chandler started for him on Friday and produced two points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in 25 minutes. Isaiah Hartenstein saw the court as well with four points and a block in 13 minutes with P.J. Tucker also playing some minutes at center. We will likely see a similar scenario on Saturday.
