Ty Lawson Headshot

Ty Lawson (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game.

Lawson is dealing with a sprained ankle, although it is unclear when he suffered the injury. A decision on his status will come after the shootaround Wednesday, but if he cannot go against the Pacers, then expect the duo of Darren Collison and Garrett Temple to see additional playing time.

Austin Rivers Headshot

Austin Rivers is expected to see an increase in minutes while Chris Paul is out.

Rivers will take over at the point while Paul is out of action. He has a chance to start on Thursday against Minnesota and could be a nice daily option to slide into your lineups.

Lucas Nogueira Headshot

Update: Lucas Nogueira is undergoing concussion protocol.

He took a forearm to the head, so the concussion protocol is no surprise to be invoked. He is no guarantee to return to action, but keep your eye on the news coming out of Brooklyn to see whether he is going to be on the sidelines for more than just Tuesday's game.

Montrezl Harrell Headshot

Montrezl Harrell will come off the bench on Tuesday.

Harrell had been putting in 26-27 minutes per game, while Clint Capela was out of action the past 15 games. Now that Capela is back as the starter, his minutes will diminish to an extent, but he has demonstrated a nice mix of point scoring and rebounds, so should still be in the mix in the forecourt.

Clint Capela Headshot

Clint Capela is starting for the Rockets on Tuesday.

Capela has been out of action for the past 15 contests that the Rockets have played. Even with him starting, he may be on a minutes limit as he comes back from a fractured fibula. In Capela's absence the team has been using a tandem of Montrezl Harrell and Nene Hilario at center, and Harrell is in line to pick up the slack if Capela cannot play a full slate of minutes in his first game back.
