The Rockets are on a back-to-back, so there’s some lineup changes for tonight’s game. Here’s your starters on both sides:

The Rockets are also down Christian Wood, who is out indefinitely with an ankle sprain, so Houston’s depth will be challenged. The back-to-back will also affect tomorrow night’s lineup, with Victor Oladipo planning to sit on Tuesday.

But first thing’s first, and that’s tonight’s contest between two teams jockeying near the back end of the playoff positioning for their respective conferences. As usual, AK was on your preview duties, so make sure you check that out before the game gets going.

I’ll be looking for Jae’Sean Tate to shine tonight with the short lineup, and hopefully Oladipo snaps out of his current slump.

Go Rockets!
