The three-year veteran didn’t play in Game 3 because of a foot injury, although he wasn’t really missed as the Rockets won 121-116 to trim the Warriors’ series lead to just one game.
Houston has the opportunity to tie the series up in Game 4.
The Rockets will, of course, rely heavily on the backcourt tandem of reigning MVP James Harden and Chris Paul, but they will need other guys on the team to step up if they want to have a bigger chance of beating the Warriors. In Game 3, Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker stepped up to help the team secure the overtime win, and Houston fans are hoping that they will be able to be productive once again.
It is unclear if House will be missing a significant amount of time, but the Rockets will probably still be fine without him. He has only reached double figures in scoring once in these playoffs and has struggled against the Warriors. Houston might just give his minutes to backup guard Austin Rivers, who has been more reliable and productive over the past couple of games.
