The Rockets are looking to earn their ninth straight win tonight as they face off against a shorthanded Portland squad who could be without two starters tonight.

Jusuf Nurkic has already been ruled out with with an ankle injury and Maurice Harkless is questionable with a quad contusion.

The Rockets will roll with their original starting five and will be getting back Nene, who missed Thursday’s win over the Jazz with a corneal abrasion.
