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.”
