After a rough road trip to Florida that left Sterling Brown hospitalized, the Houston Rockets will begin their two-game homestand tonight against the Utah Jazz. In a 113-91 loss against the Heat, Christian Wood and Kevin Porter Jr. led the way for the Rockets with 18 points apiece.

During his pre-game press conference on Wednesday, Rockets’ head coach Stephen Silas announced that Porter is out “until Sunday” after violating the NBA’s health-and-safety protocol.

For Utah, the Jazz currently possesses the league’s best record at 45-15. On Monday, the Jazz recorded a 111-97 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. Six players scored in double-figures in the win, led by Jordan Clarkson, who finished the night with a team-best 22 points off the bench.
