After ending their 15-game losing streak Wednesday night, the Houston Rockets will return to action on Saturday for another interconference match — this time against the Charlotte Hornets.

The Rockets will be without their top overall pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, as Jalen Green is slated to miss at least a week after sustaining a hamstring injury during the previous game against the Chicago Bulls.

“He has a strained hamstring, and we are going to re-evaluate his injury in a week. His mindset is good. He is anxious to get back but knows he has to go through this process of working with the performance team to get back. He is very driven to get back.” — Silas

The Hornets are coming into the Toyota Center after winning eight out of their last nine games. On Friday, Charlotte extended their current winning streak to three after taking a 133-115 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In the win, Kelly Oubre Jr. led the way with a game-high 27 points, while LaMelo Ball dished 13 assists in the win.
