News: Jones left Wednesday's exhibition game due to a strained neck.
Impact: Jones' injury isn't expected to be anything serious, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Rockets hold him out of Friday's preseason finale. Consider the forward day-to-day until a clearer diagnosis is made.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ariza (rest) will not play in Wednesday's exhibition contest against the Magic.
Impact: Ariza will simply be given the night off, as Wednesday marks the second game of a back-to-back preseason set. With the Rockets gearing up for the beginning of the regular season next week, Ariza is expected to start at small forward for Houston this term.

News: Howard (rest) will not play in Wednesday's preseason game versus the Magic.
Impact: Howard will simply be given the night off as the Rockets gear up for the beginning of the regular season next week. At the moment, it's unknown whether Howard will be considered for Friday's preseason finale, but following 19 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and nine rebounds Tuesday against Miami, the center is fine from a health perspective.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Terry returned to action Sunday against the Nuggets and scored six points in 15 minutes.
Impact: The veteran had been dealing with a hamstring injury, but his participation in Sunday's contest indicates he should be ready to go for the regular season.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Howard returned from a knee injury to score 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 FT) and grab eight rebounds in Sunday's win over the Warriors.
Impact: Howard, as well as teammate James Harden, missed two preseason contests last week but returned to action over the weekend. Howard was dealing with a minor knee injury, and it does not appear to be anything that will carry over into the regular season.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Harden scored 15 points (2-12 FG, 10-11 FT, 1-6 3Pt) in Sunday's win over the Warriors.
Impact: Harden missed a pair of preseason contests last week but returned to practice Thursday and was not limited in Sunday's game. The shooting performance leaves plenty to be desired, but Harden added seven rebounds and six assists in 27 minutes.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Howard (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Howard has been slowed for nearly a week and missed both of the Rockets' preseason games this week. However, coach Kevin McHale downplayed Howard's injury, so the Rockets are probably just being cautious with their franchise center.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Harden (hip) went through a full practice Thursday, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Harden missed a few days of practice and sat out the Rockets' last two preseason games with a sore hip. After going through Thursday's practice, however, he appears to be in the clear and all signs point to him suiting up for Sunday's matchup with the Warriors.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Terry (hamstring) has yet to play in a preseason game, but he did return to practice on Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Terry returned to practice Saturday as expected, but was still held out of the Rockets' game in New Orleans Tuesday. The Rockets may just be holding him out to give him extra rest considering it's only preseason, but it's also possible Terry's still not 100 percent recovered from his hamstring problems. The Rockets don't play again until Sunday, so with the extra rest, we'll see if Terry is able to get some time on the court come Sunday.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Capela (groin) didn't play in Tuesday's game against New Orleans, and has yet to play this preseason.
Impact: Capela pulled his groin in early October and it still hasn't recovered to the point where he can return to the court. There hasn't been an official timetable for his return released yet, so it's still a wait-and-see type of injury. He projects as a reserve once he's healthy.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jones hit his funny bone in Tuesday's game, and the Rockets say he will be fine, the Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen reports.
Impact: He was seen wearing a large wrap on his right elbow, but it sounds like it was just his funny bone, and he should be back on the court in the very near future.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jones apparently hurt his right arm/elbow and exited Tuesday's preseason game, Rockets announcer Craig Ackerman reports.
Impact: It's not clear how serious the injury is, but we will provide an update when something official is released by the team.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Howard (knee) will sit out Monday's game against Phoenix, as well as Tuesday's contest against the Pelicans, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: He didn't practice over the weekend, but coach Kevin McHale downplayed the knee issue, saying that Howard's lack of activity is simply a precaution. Look for him to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Harden (hip) will sit out Monday against the Suns and Tuesday against the Pelicans, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: He is dealing with a sore hip, but it's probably not serious enough that he would sit out if these were regular season contests. Look for Harden to take the floor again later in the week.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Harden (hip) will probably not play in Monday's game against the Suns.
Impact: It would be a disappointment for Rockets fans to have Harden miss their season opener, but it's worrying that his hip is hurting more than previous reports seemed to indicate. Harden's practice time in the coming days will be very telling.
Oct 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Harden (hip) sat out of practice Sunday, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Harden hurt his hip a week ago, but has since returned to normal practice. Apparently the injury is still bothering him a bit, but it should be healed with rest. Expect Harden to miss a little more practice time if necessary, but ultimately be ready to go at full strength for the season opener.
Sat. Oct 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Howard (knee) did not practice Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Coach Kevin McHale downplayed the knee issue, saying Howard is sitting out merely as a precaution. Howard is expected to miss Monday's preseason game against the Suns but it sounds like he has a chance to return for Tuesday's matchup against New Orleans.
Thu. Oct 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dorsey (foot) will start at center in Thursday's preseason game versus the Grizzlies, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Dorsey will start in place of Dwight Howard, who will be sidelined Thursday due to a sore knee. The 30-year-old Dorsey missed Tuesday's preseason opener with a foot issue, but is evidently cleared to play a significant role to begin his second stint with the Rockets. However, once the regular season tips off, Dorsey's fantasy value will likely be limited to his rebounding ability in deeper leagues.
Thu. Oct 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Howard will not play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Grizzlies because of knee soreness, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Howard apparently bumped a knee during practice and is still experiencing some swelling, so he'll sit out Thursday's exhibition outing. Additionally, coach Kevin McHale expects to give Howard "a couple days to try and get his knee right" moving forward. As a result, Howard will likely be considered a game-time decision for Monday's next preseason contest.
Thu. Oct 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Terry (hamstring) will be cleared for Saturday's practice, the Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen reports.
Impact: The veteran has been nursing a pulled hamstring, which kept him out of Tuesday's preseason opener against the Mavs. After more than a week of rest, he'll be back in the mix as he prepares for a role as a shooter off the bench.
