Seven in a row? Here we come!

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets are looking for their seventh win in a row tonight when they head northward to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves. And Houston is still battling many injuries.

Of course, Clint Capela and Eric Gordon are still out, but now Russell Westbrook will also sit tonight for load management, while Danuel House is listed as questionable and will likely be a game-time decision. P.J. Tucker has a sore hand, but he is not listed on the injury report and is expected to play.

As for Minnesota, Andrew Wiggins is listed as questionable for personal reasons, according to Jonathan Feigen.

The question of the day is, can the Wolves slow down Harden? Regardless of Houston’s injuries, we’ve learned that he can carry the team regardless. Keep him under wraps, and Houston likely doesn’t have the firepower to get it done shorthanded tonight. Easier said than done.
