[Guide] After the Rockets won the Spurs, they locked in the fourth position in the West, so the last game against the Pelicans is for them
It doesn’t matter, the Rockets have decided to truce Harden, Parsons and Jeremy Lin, while Beverly and Howard continue to look for status.
On April 17th, , according to Houston media reports, the Rockets have secured the No. 4 position in the Western Conference, and their first-round opponent is none other than the Blazers.
Today, the Rockets will usher in their regular season finale and challenge the Pelicans away.
The Rockets have determined that James Harden, Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin will not play, and Howard and Beverly, who have just returned from injury, will continue to play.
James Harden did not come to New Orleans with the team today. He stayed in Houston to treat his ankle injury.
Rockets coach McHale said that after winning the Spurs to lock in the fourth place, they planned to let Harden truce.
“This injury has plagued him for a whole season,” McHale said. “Although it is not a big problem, we must treat it carefully. We hope to get the home court advantage as soon as possible to give him more time to rest. He was arranged to rest yesterday and today.
The whole team will watch the game video tomorrow, and when the whole team practice together on Friday, he should be almost ready.”
As for Parsons, he unfortunately broke his wrist in the previous game, so he will not play.
Jeremy Lin did not conduct shooting training before today’s game, indicating that he will definitely not play.
As for Beverly and Warcraft, Mai Shuai revealed that they will play in games to continue to find their status, but their playing time will be limited.
“I’ve already talked to Parker (Beverly), and I’ll go to Howard to talk about it in a while,” Mai Shuai said, “to discuss how to play tonight’s game. Beverly feels good,
He also knows very well what it is that we let him play for a while. It is very important for them to let them know, but it doesn’t matter whether you (reporters) know or not.”
