Houston Rockets rookie Alperen Sengun on Wednesday missed his second straight day of training camp due to an illness unrelated to the coronavirus, head coach Stephen Silas said. Sengun has been unable to participate with the Rockets in practice or other activities during training camp, which is being held in Galveston, Texas. The team has been sending video clips and other information to Sengun to review while he isn’t with the team. “It’s unfortunate,” Silas said. “Thankfully, it is not COVID so that’s a great thing. He’ll be back with us. It’s two days out of the season, so it’s really not that big of a deal. (Rockets assistant coach) Will Weaver is sending him video clips and keeping him abreast of what we’re putting in, and what we’re doing. He is a smart kid. He learns easily.”

Silas should have no trouble with ballhandling and half-court execution with names like Porter, Green and House on the floor together — Tate and Wood aren’t scrubs in that department, either. House also improved defensively last season even while taking a step back offensively (statistically speaking). He already has the upper hand heading into camp. Recently, he’s been developing on-court chemistry with Green. The Rockets have been hosting intra-roster scrimmages for the past few weeks, and sources say the Green-House-Sengun-Lamb team has been dominating. Green and House have played well off each other, which bodes well for the weeks ahead.
