2:30 PM ; Tari Eason has been upgraded to available and will play against Lakers on Sunday
11:00 AM : Tari Eason’s participation in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers is uncertain, as he’s listed questionable, due to precautions taken for injury management concerning his left lower leg.
In the recent 106-100 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Eason showcased his skills with 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, two blocks, and a steal in 20 minutes.
Considering he missed the initial six games while recovering from a stress fracture in his left leg, the Rockets are understandably exercising caution in his rehabilitation.
Eason holds an average of 7.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game at the beginning of this season.
Should Eason be sidelined for tonight’s game, his next opportunity to hit the court will arise in Monday’s away game against the Golden State Warriors.
The Rockets, with a record of 6 wins and 4 losses, have emerged victorious in 6 of their last 7 games. They are set to face the Los Angeles Lakers (7-6) tonight as part of their ongoing road trip.
