The Rockets look to get back on a win streak tonight as they head to Miami to take on the 11-30 Heat and unfortunately, they'll have to do it without one of their top players. Ryan Anderson is out tonight with a flu bug he's been battling for several games, which pushes Trevor Ariza to the four and Corey Brewer into the starting lineup.

Houston does have some good news in that Clint Capela is making a return to the starting lineup tonight after missing a month with a leg fracture. He's not on an official minutes limit, but will likely be dealing with some conditioning issues, so it remains to be seen how much court time he will actually see.
As always, don't forget to peep AK's preview if you haven't already.
