The Houston Rockets are taking on the Denver Nuggets tonight in the mountains, and they have some good news in that Chris Paul, who was battling a sore back, will be going tonight. He’ll likely sit tomorrow, according to Jonathan Feigen:
Chris Paul good to go against Denver. Likely to sit tomorrow vs. Utah.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) February 2, 2019
Nene, on the other hand, will sit tonight, and play tomorrow against the Utah Jazz instead.
The Nuggets will be without Gary Harris and Jamal Murray, but they’re still 35-15 and winners of their last four straight.
The Rockets are looking to rebound from a tough loss to the shorthanded New Orleans Pelicans, but’s it’s not gonna breeze tonight in Denver.
Rockets starters: Gordon, Tucker, Faried, Harden, Paul.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) February 2, 2019
