The All Star break is over. The Rockets are back in action. Or back in inaction, as the case may be as there aren’t many of the well-known Rockets available tonight.

Expected to miss tonight’s game are:

Christian Wood, who we’d hoped to see back by now. Rodions Kurucs, who we rarely expect to see play, and possibly/probably Danuel House, and John Wall who are listed as Day-to-Day, as is Eric Gordon. David Nwaba had wrist surgery and won’t be back for weeks. You can simply assume Dante Exum is out at all times.

If the plan is to lose, losing should definitely happen with this lineup. We might expect to see Kevin Porter Jr., Kenyon Martin Jr. and maybe new signing Daniel Lamb.

It should be interesting? In theory at least.
