  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Undergoes successful surgery

    The Rockets announced Tuesday that Eason underwent successful surgery to treat a benign growth in his lower leg. He's expected to make a full recovery in approximately four months.

    As expected, Eason will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery, but he should be back to full strength this summer and will likely be available for training camp in the fall. The No. 17 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft finishes his second season in the NBA with averages of 9.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.9 blocks in 21.8 minutes per game, numbers that are nearly identical to his averages as a rookie. Eason is a promising young player, but the Rockets also have Alperen Sengun, Jabari Smith, Amen Thompson and Cam Whitmore as ascending frontcourt options, which puts a ceiling on Eason's fantasy value heading into 2024-25.

Eason has a timetable of four months, so while he's out for the remainder of the season, he should be ready in advance of the 2024-25 season. He'll finish the campaign with averages of 9.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 steals.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Not yet cleared to play

    Head coach Ime Udoka said that Eason (lower leg) is set to be evaluated Wednesday, but the Rockets haven't yet provided a target date for his return to game action, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The Rockets are likely to provide a follow-up on Eason's status once the evaluation is completed, but since he didn't resume practicing with the team Wednesday, the second-year forward looks safe to rule out for back-to-back games Thursday and Friday versus the Pelicans and Suns, respectively, to open the post-break schedule. Eason hasn't played since Jan. 1 due to the left lower leg injury and will likely be eased back into action with a light role whenever he's formally cleared to suit up.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Could return next week

    Coach Ime Udoka said Thursday that Eason (lower leg) has started to ramp up his activity level and could rejoin the Rockets next week, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Eason has started playing 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 during practices and appears to be trending toward a return to game action. He'll likely remain sidelined Friday against Toronto and Sunday against the Timberwolves but could be in the mix to return as early as Tuesday against Indiana. Once he's cleared to return, it wouldn't be surprising to see Eason face a minutes restriction during his first few games back.
