David Lee had minor surgery to repair a core muscle (pelvic area) and won't be able to train with Team USA in Las Vegas.
Again, the procedure was deemed minor, so while it will take Lee out of the running for a spot on Team USA in the FIBA World Cup in Spain, he should be just fine for training camp.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
