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
George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Springer has now collected two hits in three straight games which has helped raise his average from .195 to .214 on the season. A concussion sidelined Springer in early May but he has played well since his return, hitting .282 with six runs, two home runs and four RBI. Fantasy owners will have to deal with the low batting average as Springer is once again on pace to rank among the league leaders in strikeouts but he’s already reached double-digit stole bases and could flirt with a 30/30 season given his potential.
