The Houston Rockets are going to be shorthanded once again for their matchup with the Phoenix Suns on Monday. John Wall will miss his fourth straight game due to a knee injury, and Danuel House has also been ruled out due to an ankle injury. House suffered the injury during the first half of Sunday’s loss against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Ben McLemore was also recently released, so there are plenty of minutes available in the Rockets’ frontcourt.

Kelly Olynyk started the second half in place of House on Sunday, and he ultimately finished with 33 minutes. He’s a prime candidate to move into the starting lineup against the Suns, and Olynyk has averaged 0.93 FanDuel points per minute this season.

Kevin Porter Jr. led the team in usage in their last game, and he should be looking at another expanded workload on Monday.

That said, this game may turn into a blowout. The Suns have been one of the best teams in basketball this season, and the Rockets are listed as 14.5-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook.
