Rockets forward P.J. Tucker, cleared after his rehab from a strained right hamstring Sept. 21, was a full participant in Sunday’s practice for the first time in Rockets training camp. With the NBA’s shorter training camp and a Rockets’ preseason schedule reduced to five games, beginning Tuesday against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Tucker said he is working to make up for lost time before the Oct. 17 season opener.

Tucker was successfully stepping up his rehab workload after feeling soreness in his right hamstring during the Rockets’ pick-up games last Thursday. But D’Antoni did not want that progress to fool Tucker into giving in to the temptation to join the practices going on without him. “We’re all anxious, and I know he’s really anxious to get out and play, but we have to slow down,” D’Antoni said. “I just told him this morning, we have to make sure he’s healthy all year. If you miss one practice now instead of (missing) two weeks later, it’s more important. We’ll be careful with him. He is further ahead of what they thought. He’ll start doing some things pretty soon.”
