Jonathan Feigen: Rockets summer team: Will Cummings (Temple), Denzel Livingston (Incarnate Word), Glen Rice Jr. and Jaron Johnson (RGV), Christian Wood (UNLV), Clint Capela, Nick Johnson, Montrezl Harrell, Sam Dekker. Rockets “still working through some details” with D’Angelo Harrison, source said. Likely can add him to list soon.
Howard says if the rookie has take on the burden of his minutes, there’s only way for the Rockets to approach it. “Just gotta let him play,” Howard said. “Only advice I can say is he’s just gotta go out there and play as hard as he can. For his first playoff run, he’s done an excellent job of giving it everything he’s got. “He’s been in the D-League for most of the year. Then to come out here and play with us, getting the minutes that he’s getting, he’s done an excellent job of playing defense and getting up on those guards…I think he’s playing great. I’m really proud and happy for his growth as a player.”
Now, if a sprained left knee keeps Dwight Howard out of Game 2 of the Western Conference finals, Capela might find himself in the starting lineup against the Warriors. Or at the very least, getting significant playing time. “When I was in the D-League, no, I would not think this was possible,” said the precocious 21-year-old native of Geneva, Switzerland. “I thought I’m not going to play this year, maybe next year. I was just trying to keep working hard and be ready when they would call me up.”
