Nene Hilario scored six points Saturday, going 3 of 5 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the Golden State Warriors 116-108. Hilario grabbed one rebound and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +8 in his 16:03 of playing time.
Nene Hilario scored 12 points Thursday, going 6 of 11 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-98. Hilario pulled down eight rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +21 in his 21:58 of playing time. He added one steal.
Hilario (knee) is available for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Hilario has missed the last six games due to a knee injury, but his return Thursday will give the Rockets some much-needed depth in the frontcourt, especially with Trevor Ariza suspended for the next two contests. Hilario will likely take back the minutes Tarik Black has seen in his absence recently.
Hilario (knee) is listed as questionable in the Rockets' game notes for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.
Hilario did not travel with the team on its recent road trip and missed his sixth straight contest as a result. The Rockets will likely have an update on the big man by Thursday morning after shootaround. In his absence, Tarik Black has seen limited minutes off the bench with Clint Capela, Ryan Anderson and P.J. Tucker have handle majority of the frontcourt minutes.
Head coach Mike D'Antoni said Hilario (knee) will not travel with the Rockets on their upcoming road trip, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
As a result of Hilario not making the trip, it appears the veteran will miss a fifth and sixth game -- Friday against the Suns and Monday against the Clippers -- as he continues to work his way back from a bruised right knee. Tarik Black (eye) is also expected to miss Friday's game, so look for Clint Capela, Ryan Anderson and P.J. Tucker to see the majority of minutes in Houston's frontcourt.
