Alykhan Bijani: #Rockets Injury/Status: Dante Exum (NWT-R Calf Strain) Eric Gordon (Out-R Groin Strain) Danuel House (Out-R Knee Contusion) Rodions Kurucs (NWT–L Oblique Strain) Davis Nwaba (Questionable–R Wrist Strain) Victor Oladipo (Out–R Quad; Injury Maintenance) PJ Tucker (NWT) John Wall (Out–L Knee Contusion) Christian Wood (Out–R Ankle Sprain)

The Athletic understands that Houston wants to keep Wood out until after the break. The Rockets have erred on the side of caution with their free-agent splash, knowing Wood has had previous right ankle issues. They want to avoid a situation similar to what Warriors guard Stephen Curry endured early in his career, repeatedly injuring the same ankle to a point where it required surgery. Sources say Wood is in good spirits and moving in the right direction, walking without a limp and has been able to participate in some defensive sliding drills.
