News: Jones (ribs) thinks he'll be able to play Wednesday against the Kings, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Jones has been listed questionable since Tuesday afternoon, and after going through Wednesday's shootaround he would appear to have a good chance to get back on the floor after missing six games due to a collapsed lung. If he's given the green light, it's unclear whether he'll re-enter the starting lineup or come off the bench.
News: Terry (neck) is considered probable Wednesday against Sacramento.
Impact: Terry keeps appearing on the Rockets' injury report, but it's highly unlikely he misses Wednesday's game. With Patrick Beverley done for the season, Terry has moved into the starting lineup and will be a key cog in the rotation moving forward.
News: Brewer (oblique) is again listed as probable Wednesday against Sacramento.
Impact: Brewer has been playing through a minor oblique issue for the last few games, and while he hasn't been limited in terms of minutes, the team continues to list him as probable. Expect him to play Wednesday, though Houston could look to get Brewer a game or two of rest down the stretch if the right scenario arises.
News: Howard (rest) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Kings.
Impact: Howard sat out Monday's game against the Raptors on the second night of a back-to-back set. With another back-to-back on tap Wednesday/Thursday, Howard will be held out of one of the contests, but the team is yet to reveal which one.
News: Jones (ribs) could return Wednesday against the Kings, as he's listed as questionable.
Impact: Jones has been making progress in his recovery from a collapsed lung, and he's now been upgraded from doubtful to questionable for Wednesday's contest. If he's ultimately held out, his next chance to play comes Thursday in Dallas.
News: Beverley underwent a procedure to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist Tuesday, which will require four months to recover, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Because the ligament needed to be reattached in his thumb, any hope was erased that Beverley would heal in time for the Western Conference finals, if the Rockets would have advanced to the round. He'll now don a cast for 10 weeks but should be approaching full health by the time he hits unrestricted free agency on July 1. His brand of hard-nosed defense will be of particular interest to other organizations, especially after averaging a career-high 4.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 2.1 three-pointers this season.
