News: McDaniels was assigned to the D-League on Saturday, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: McDaniels was recalled by the Rockets earlier in the week to add depth, and despite Terrence Jones' likely absence through the All-Star break, he'll head back down to the D-League for the time being.
News: Jones (concussion) is doubtful for the Rockets' last three games before the All-Star break, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Jones was involved in a car accident Thursday that required a trip to the hospital, but he has since been released and was being evaluated by the team's medical staff early Saturday. He is in the NBA's concussion protocol and it seems likely that the Rockets will hold him out until after the break. The Rockets have been surviving with smaller lineups, using Trevor Ariza at the four, but Josh Smith and Montrezl Harrell could see more minutes if coach Bickerstaff opts to use a bigger front court pairing.
News: Jones has been diagnosed with a concussion after being involved in a car accident Thursday afternoon, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Jones will be held out of Saturday's matchup with Portland.
Impact: Initially, it was reported that Jones escaped the incident without any injuries, but further evaluations revealed that he sustained a concussion. As a result, Jones, who sat out Thursday's game, has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers. Consider the forward day-to-day and questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Warriors in Oakland.
