Projected Starting Lineups
Hawks: Trae Young, Kevin Huerter, Tony Snell, Danilo Gallinari, John Collins
Rockets: Kevin Porter Jr., Victor Oladipo, Sterling Brown, Jae’Sean Tate, Justin Patton
The Rockets are running another game with just eight eligible players. They’ll have the five starters listed above along with rookies Mason Jones, Anthony Lamb and KJ Martin.
Half of the Rockets playing tonight are either second-round picks or rookies.
The other half are Victor Oladipo, Sterling Brown, Justin Patton (playing in his 19th career NBA game) and KPJ (playing in his 54th career NBA game).
It’s hard to win games that way.
Ben McLemore is out with an ankle injury and David Nwaba is out with a wrist injury.
But Christian Wood and Danuel House could return tomorrow, so that’s promising.
