James Ennis III

Fantasy News

  • James Ennis III - F - Houston Rockets

    James Ennis started for Chris Paul (rest) on Saturday night and was able to post 10 points, five rebounds and a steal in 30 minutes.

    Nothing too special from Ennis, though the workload might be enough to hold deep-league value as a steals and threes guy. Houston keeps a tight rotation so even off the bench it's possible that Ennis stays up in the high twenties. P.J. Tucker is the better option of the two by far and has floated above and below the 12-team cut line all year, posting two points, four rebounds, three steals and a block tonight.

    James Ennis will start for Chris Paul (rest) in Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    With CP3 out, expect Ennis to get good hefty minutes in tonight's matchup against Utah. Managers should consider getting him in deep leagues especially with Clint Capela (thumb) still healing from his injury.

  • James Ennis III - F - Houston Rockets

    James Ennis started and scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting (including four threes) with three rebounds and one block over 27 minutes in Saturday's overtime win against the Lakers.

    Ennis could scrape his way to some fantasy value on a banged up Rockets squad but owners can watch this action from the wire for the most part.

    James Ennis III (left calf laceration) will start Saturday's game against the Lakers.

    Ennis is replacing Gary Clark, while P.J. Tucker remains at center. Ennis has a decent shot at playing heavy minutes now that Clint Capela (thumb) is out and Danuel House and the Rockets never agreed on a deal. If anyone was holding onto Clark in deep leagues he can be dropped if there's anything available.

    James Ennis (left calf laceration) is probable to play on Saturday vs. the Lakers.

    Ennis had pretty good low-end value before his injury but with Eric Gordon back and Chris Paul (hamstring) due back fairly soon (it might be as soon as a week) it’s not a guarantee that he returns to putting up standard-league value.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (knee soreness) and James Ennis (calf laceration) will play on Saturday against the Lakers.

    Gordon has been dealing with some knee soreness for some time and has had issues with the knee before. He'll be available for this one and should be a good source of 3-pointers, if nothing else. Ennis has a shot for deep-league value just from minute volume. For that, he has to spend actual time on court over Danuel House Jr. and James Nunnally. Seems like it should be easy considering House is in the G-League and Nunnally just got there, but… who knows.

  • James Ennis III - F - Houston Rockets

    James Ennis (left calf laceration) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game.

    It's a tough break for Ennis, who was looking like a potential starter again after the Rockets couldn't work out a deal with Danuel House. If Eric Gordon can't play tonight then newcomer James Nunnally might be pressed into heavy duty with Houston so thin on the wings. Gary Clark and Gerald Green also figure to be quite busy. Ennis is a 3-and-D type who can hold deep-league value when he's getting lots of minutes, but he's obviously off the table tonight.

  • James Ennis III - F - Houston Rockets

    Playing in his first game since December 11, James Ennis logged eight minutes in Thursday's win over the Warriors.

    Ennis scored three points with two rebounds and two assists. He's going to be worked in slowly, especially with Danuel House playing well, and is only on the radar in 16-teamers at the moment.

    James Ennis (hamstring) will be available on Thursday against the Warriors but will be limited to 15 minutes.

    Ennis has been out since December 11th but he steps back into a potentially favorable rotation spot at full health. The Rockets are hurting on the wing and Ennis could easily fall into some late-round value just by being… alive.

    James Ennis (hamstring) is expected to return for Thursday's game with the Warriors.

    He was expected back for New Year's Eve as well but didn't play. He's not a lock to return Thursday, but it's likely. Once he's up to speed he will likely snatch Danuel House's spot with the starters and could be in for big minutes with the Rockets' injuries.

    James Ennis will not be able to play on Monday but is expected to return from his hamstring injury on Thursday.

    Mike D'Antoni was also expecting Ennis to suit up tonight, so Thursday is no guarantee. Either way, he's close. Ennis will be looking at big minutes whenever he does return given Houston's current injury troubles and should hold back-end appeal as a threes and steals guy for deep leagues. Danuel House will likely be bumped from the starting five once Ennis is up to full speed.

  • James Ennis III - F - Houston Rockets

    James Ennis (hamstring) is officially questionable for Monday.

    Ennis should be back to his low-end 3-and-D numbers once he gets healthy, but it's been quite a layoff. There should be some rust here considering Ennis has missed about three weeks, but deep-leaguers can feel free to add him considering the fact that the Rockets are basically playing their healthy guys (non-Nene division) 25-plus minutes. Danuel House might be hurt the most here, not that that's a major factor in most leagues.

    James Ennis (hamstring) will not play on Saturday against the Pelicans.

    Coach Mike D’Antoni expects Ennis to play on Monday vs. the Grizzlies so it looks like just one more missed game from Ennis. He was previously putting up low-end deep-league numbers as a 3-and-D guy but was losing value when he got hurt. Now, he’ll return to compete with Austin Rivers and Danuel House for minutes and it doesn’t appear he’ll be able to improve on his numbers.

    Mike D'Antoni expects James Ennis (hamstring) to return on New Year's Eve.

    Ennis' return could complicate Austin Rivers' fantasy value and Ennis himself can be watched from the wire.
