Adam Spolane: Rockets have ruled out David Nwaba (ankle) from tonight’s game. George Hill (thumb) and Ty Jerome (ankle) are out for OKC
David, it’s been quite some time since that December game against the Spurs, but what do you recall from that night? When was the moment you knew that something was wrong? David Nwaba: "I knew once it happened, I knew what was wrong. It was a loud pop and I just went down to the floor. I looked back to see if anybody was there and who kicked me, nobody was there. So I knew, I knew exactly what kind of injury it was."
How has the rehab process been for you overall? David Nwaba: "It’s been pretty hard. Stressful at times, frustrating because I’m expecting to see quick results, quick improvements. It’s a 10- to 12-month recovery and it takes time and patience. So that’s the biggest thing for me, I am working on patience and not trying to get too down on myself or frustrated when I’m not seeing quick results. But in the beginning, it took a long time. I was in a boot for I think two and a half months, and then I was slowly walking, so I wasn’t seeing results. But now every week since the ninth month I’m seeing dramatic improvement, and every week, like this week, I’m feeling more explosive. I’m just seeing more results every day and weekly instead of just monthly. So I can see the improvements now I could see the light for sure."
10. David Nwaba, who was acquired by Houston prior to entering the bubble, “looks good,” according to a source, as he continues his rehab from his Achilles injury and prepares for next season. Internally, Nwaba is being viewed as a key rotational piece, with the expectation that he’ll be a solid contributor in the 2020-21 season. Nwaba initially tore his right Achilles tendon last December as a member of the Brooklyn Nets before being waived by the team in early January.
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward David Nwaba underwent successful surgery today to repair a ruptured right Achilles tendon. The procedure was performed by Dr. Martin O’Malley at the Hospital for Special Surgery. The injury, which occurred during last night’s game at San Antonio, will result in Nwaba missing the remainder of the season.

David Nwaba, who has been at the center of the Cleveland Cavaliers' two-game winning streak, will miss Monday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves because of soreness in his right knee. Nwaba, a starter the last three games, will miss his fourth game of the season and first with an injury.
One day after earning head coach Tyronn Lue's praise, David Nwaba will be held out of the Cleveland Cavaliers' second preseason game against the Boston Celtics. Nwaba, who Lue declared part of his rotation despite a glut of guards, is nursing a groin injury. He tweaked it "a little bit" in practice recently. The 25-year-old free agent addition will join George Hill, Kyle Korver, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson on the sidelines Saturday night.
Shams Charania: Sources: The Chicago Bulls have rescinded the qualifying offer on guard David Nwaba, making him an unrestricted free agent.
“It was probably one of my worst sprains,” Nwaba said. “I didn’t think I’d be out for this long. I was hoping to be out a week at most. For me to be out four weeks, it’s been an issue. I’m going to bounce back.”
Darnell Mayberry: David Nwaba “most likely” will get minutes tonight against Sacramento, according to Fred Hoiberg. #Bulls #BullsNation
