Houston Rockets (2-5) vs. Chicago Bulls (2-7), Nov. 3, 2018, 7:00 p.m. CDT
Tonight at the United Center in Chicago, the Rockets look for their first winning streak of the season as they take on the Chicago Bulls on the second night of a back-to-back.
The good news is that James Harden returns tonight. The bad news is that there still is no continuity, as Eric Gordon will now miss the game with what’s being called a “sore right leg”. He’s officially listed as day-to-day.
New injury issues for the Rockets. Eric Gordon is out with a sore leg. James Ennis is questionable with a sore right hamstring. That was the hamstring that had been strained before he came back last night in Brooklyn.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) November 3, 2018
James Harden is available to play tonight against in Chicago.
James Ennis will, in fact, be in the lineup after all, which is good news, but it’s still difficult to get into a solid rhythm with so many lineup changes. If the Rockets are going to use last night’s victory over the Brooklyn Nets as a springboard to jump start their season, they can’t slip backwards and look lost again tonight against the Bulls despite that lack of continuity.
Tonight’s game airs locally on AT&T Southwest, and for those of us out of market, we’ll catch you on the NBA LP.
