Fantasy News

  • Joe Johnson - SG/SF - Houston Rockets

    Joe Johnson scored four points on 2-of-10 shooting in Wednesday's finale against the Kings, and also added three rebounds to go with five assists.

    Johnson never really got off the ground whether it was in Utah or in Houston, averaging 21.9 mpg and playing in 55 contests. He couldn't crack the top-300 when on the floor and had no value in fantasy leagues.

  • Joe Johnson - SG/SF - Houston Rockets

    Joe Johnson scored 16 points and added six rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in the Rockets’ last-second win over the Suns.

    Johnson helped the Rockets crawl out of a 21-point hole on Friday night with his best scoring performance in a Rocket uniform. He hasn’t been a consistent producer since joining the Rockets but he’s mostly there to help propel them during their playoff run. He can be avoided in fantasy despite tonight’s impressive performance.

  • Trevor Ariza - SF - Houston Rockets

    Trevor Ariza is questionable to face the Suns on Friday night because of a bruised right elbow.

    Earlier in the day it was reported that Luc Mbah a Moute was the only injured Rocket heading into this game but it looks like Houston will try and get some extra rest for their key pieces against a beatable opponent. Ariza's absence would open up time for Gerald Green and Joe Johnson, and potentially Ryan Anderson if the Rockets want to shift P.J. Tucker over to small forward for a few minutes. Green's the target if you have to choose.

  • Gerald Green - SG - Houston Rockets

    Gerald Green played 30 minutes with James Harden out on Tuesday but shot just 4-of-14 from the field and 1-of-9 from deep to finish with 14 points, seven rebounds and three assists.

    Owners were surely expecting more from Green in this matchup, and he couldn't light it up despite ample garbage time. Such are the perils of trusting streaky volume scorers. Harden's absence also opened up a little extra scoring opportunity for Joe Johnson, who went for 10 points and five assists in 29 minutes. He's not a fantasy option.

  • Chris Paul - PG - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul (sore knee) is officially listed as questionable against the Pelicans on Saturday according to Jonathan Feigen.

    This seems like an upgrade, but it may not be. Mike D’Antoni spoke to the media yesterday and said that he doesn’t expect Chris Paul to play on Saturday and that we should expect him back either Sunday or Tuesday. Joe Johnson played 30 minutes in Paul’s absense on Thursday and posted 11 points with two steals and two triples. Gerald Green saw an uptick in minutes as well with 22.

  • Luc Mbah a Moute - SF - Houston Rockets

    Luc Mbah a Moute (knee) is doubtful to play on Saturday and his status for Sunday’s game remains uncertain.

    Mbah a Moute is dealing with knee tendonitis and the Rockets are pretty comfortable atop the West so we wouldn’t bet on seeing him this weekend. He’s only a deep league option if you need defensive stats to begin with so hopefully this won’t rock your world. Expect the Rockets to spread his minutes across a handful of players, with Joe Johnson and Gerald Green being the closest to streaming value.

  • Luc Mbah a Moute - PF - Houston Rockets

    Luc Mbah a Moute could miss the next couple games with knee tendonitis.

    Mbah a Moute isn’t a big fantasy contributor, mainly on the floor for his defensive acumen. However, with him injured his minutes could be distributed to Gerald Green and Joe Johnson as they were in Thursday’s game.

  • Ryan Anderson - PF - Houston Rockets

    Ryan Anderson played in his first game since February 25th on Saturday night, logging 11 minutes and going scoreless with three rebounds, a steal and a block.

    It’s good to see Anderson back in action, though it’ll take a few games for him to shake off the rust from his hip injury. He’ll only be a 3-point specialist when that happens, however, and there are no guarantees that he’ll move back into the starting five. Houston’s bench was pretty lackluster tonight, as Eric Gordon, Joe Johnson and Luc Mbah a Moute only scored five points apiece. Outside of Gordon this isn’t an area you want to traffic in.

  • Clint Capela (calf) is a go for Friday

    [blurb-title player='Clint Capela' team='hou' pos='C'] [blurb-fact] Clint Capela (calf) will play on Friday vs. the Raptors. [/blurb-fact] [blurb-opinion] Capela (calf) was probable to play, but it's good to have conformation, so make sure he's in…

  • Ryan Anderson - PF - Houston Rockets

    Ryan Anderson has been ruled out for Friday’s game against Toronto due to a sore hip.

    Anderson had already been listed as doubtful so there is not much to see here. Clint Capela and Joe Johnson are probable for the game. P.J. Tucker has been playing solid basketball since taking over the starting role. Anderson does not hold much value right now.

  • Joe Johnson - SG/SF - Houston Rockets

    Joe Johnson is not on the injury report for Friday’s game against Toronto after missing the previous two with illness.

    Ryan Anderson is doubtful for the contest so Johnson may be able to see a few extra minutes. Either way, the once-superstar is not worth owning right now. Father time seems to have finally caught up to him; he’s just a role player for the Rockets.

  • Joe Johnson - SG/SF - Houston Rockets

    Joe Johnson (illness) and Nene (rest) will not play in Wednesday’s game against the Bucks.

    Johnson’s absence could open up minutes for Gerald Green who’s fallen out of the rotation. He could be worth streaming in deeper leagues but nothing more than that. Tarik Black should get some burn with Nene sidelined on the second night of a back-to-back.

  • Joe Johnson - SF/PF - Houston Rockets

    Joe Johnson is questionable to face the Bucks on Wednesday with an illness.

    Though he’s only feeling under the weather, it’d be a little surprising to see the Rockets push their veteran on a back-to-back. Even if he does improve enough to play tonight, his presence will have no bearing on any fantasy decisions.

  • Joe Johnson - SF/PF - Houston Rockets

    Joe Johnson is being listed as out ahead of Tuesday’s game because of an illness.

    Game notes aren’t etched in stone and we are a full day ahead of tip off, so it wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world to check back tomorrow night for final word. Of course, you shouldn’t really be relying on Iso Joe for fantasy output these days anyway. Look for Luc Mbah a Moute to pick up extra minutes. He’s already a much more appealing option.

  • Ryan Anderson - PF - Houston Rockets

    Ryan Anderson is dealing with left hip flexor soreness and is questionable to face the Jazz on Monday.

    Anderson has already been relegated to a bench role, but the Rockets could use his spacing against a tenacious Utah defense. Regardless, he’s not a fantasy option unless you’re purely looking for threes. P.J. Tucker will start but Luc Mbah a Moute and Joe Johnson might see some extra playing time as well.
