Patrick Beverley (abdominal strain) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's tilt with the Wizards, Rockets' radio play-by-play broadcaster Craig Ackerman reports.
Should Beverley not play than Jeremy Lin would slide back into the starting lineup for the Rockets and may be worth considering as a contraion selection in a GPP as very few people will flock to him after he scored just two points in 33 minutes against the TWolves last game, but before that Lin was averaging 16.0 points, 1.4 3-pointers, 4.8 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and 1.2 steals in the five prior games, so the upside is there, but roster at your own risk.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Luol Deng (knee) won't return Sunday.
Michael Beasley is likely the candidate to replace the Deng starting minutes for the rest of the way. There is no word on the long term implications of the injury yet, but if there is, Beasley might be a solid play for the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Athletics reassign Luke Carlin, Max Muncy and Andy Parrino to minor league camp.
One of these things is not like the other. Muncy is a 23-year old prospect, while Carlin and Parrino are older journeymen. Muncy, a first baseman, his 21 home runs in 2013 at High-A in 428 plate appearances. But the power hasn't translated to Double-A yet as he hit just seven home runs in 530 plate appearances there last year. Muncy isn't really a prospect you have to know, but he's far more notable than Carlin and Parrino. Analysis: Brett Talley
