  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela, initially listed as questionable, has now been ruled out of Monday’s game against the Jazz because of an illness.

    An illness will also keep Eric Gordon out of action tonight so hopefully that doesn’t spread further around the locker room. Tarik Black will start at center and is worth a look as a cheap DFS option, while Nene could see extra work off the bench if Houston doesn’t want to dedicate too much time to smaller lineups. Capela isn’t expected to be out long but owners will need to turn to plan B tonight.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela is being listed as questionable for Monday’s game with an illness.

    The Rockets could be shorthanded in the frontcourt tonight with Brandan Wright already ruled out because of right knee soreness. It could be a big day for the Jazz and their talented front line if Capela does sit, as only Nene and Tarik Black could be called on to play a more traditional center role. Houston would probably have to go small if that were the case, but either way Capela is the only one of the bunch with substantial fantasy value.

  • Eric Gordon
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon (illness) and Nene (rest) have been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Nuggets.

    Nene is resting tonight and will play on Monday. Gordon will miss his third straight game due to illness. Gerald Green should pick up the slack and is worth streaming in most deeper formats and some standard leagues while he’s getting extended minutes.
