After missing the previous three games due to a left thigh injury, Kevin Porter Jr. will return to the Houston Rockets’ lineup for an interference match against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday.

Prior to his injury, Porter averaged 12.7 points and a team-high 5.1 assists through the first 14 games of the season starting at point guard.

“I feel good. I just wanted to take my time after the second time I hit my thigh. It was my body telling me to sit down and let it heal. I am definitely happy to be back — and my boys are too.” — Porter

In what was an inferior offensive night for the Bulls, DeMar DeRozan (18) and Zach LaVine (17) were the only two players who scored in double figures amid a 32-point loss to the Pacers.
