Rockets forward Danuel House Jr. said while making progress in his recovery from a sprained right ankle including some on-court drills, he has not been able to target when he might return from the injury. “I think we’re getting closer and closer,” House said. “Just dealing with it the best I can. The staff is doing an unbelievable job. The coaching staff is working with me and prepping myself and getting ready. We’re doing a good job of rehabbing and taking our time and making sure it is handled in the right way. “The medical staff hasn’t really given me a precise date. I’m just going by rehabilitation and movements day-by-day until they give me the OK.”

Steve Kerr approached Leandro Barbosa about playing this season

Warriors assistant coach Leandro Barbosa said coach Steve Kerr approached him about playing this season and doesn’t know why the opportunity never materialized. Barbosa, who specializes on the Warriors staff in mentoring players, acknowledged that the idea of him returning as a player after three years away from the NBA “wasn’t a joke at all” when injuries decimated the team’s rotation while the Warriors were in the playoff hunt.
