It’s good to be back after a week spent battling first a herniated disc and then a lovely case of the flu obtained over the weekend. I’m still pretty far from 100 percent, but good enough to sit on my couch under a blanket and type a few hundred words about tonight’s game and its recap.

James Harden will thankfully be active for tonight’s contest after being added to the injury report earlier in the day with a bruised calf.

At the time of this post, Anthony Davis for the Pelicans was still listed as questionable after re-aggravating an injury, though according to Jonathan Feigen, he looked pretty good in pregame warmups.

Alvin Gentry apparently won’t make a decision on his availability until the last minute, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see AD sit tonight.

The Rockets have kept on winning while I was down for the count, and they’ll be looking for their 10th straight in the W column tonight against the 14-13 Pelicans. With the game taking place at home, I’ll be looking for that victory.

Don’t forget to hit up AK’s preview before game time.

Go Rockets!

Edit: Anthony Davis is out for tonight’s game.
