    The cushion over GS can allow us to rest guys on and off over the next couple of weeks.

    We need to bring up some of the young guys from RVG. Nanu for fouls and Zhou for development and defense.

    Rockets injury notation:
    Questionable = Out to rest for a game, or ready for maybe a treadmill but not allowed in the areana.
    Day-to-Day = bone/bone, extended absence

    I would just rest everyone. The warriors are cancelling practice for partying too much. I don't think it will be too hard to get no1 seed.

    Rest him. We need a healthy Chris Paul to take out of Warriors.

    On the other hand, Kerr is resting Curry as well.

    So D'Antoni finally has learned a few tricks from Pop/Kerr. Now that #1 race is pretty much locked up, it is time to rest Paul's old legs and get ready for the Championship Run!;)

    I'd play CP3 and get the win over the Clippers. Rest him after the 3 game road trip. You won't need him against the likes of the Hawks, Bulls, or Suns.

    If the lakeshow beat up the warriors.. I say we rest both Capela and Paul.. we need to mantain at-least a two game lead.

    What's the deal with R.J. Hunter in the G-League? This might be a good time to get him some minutes and rest Paul. His stats seem decent enough to use him as a guard off the bench.

    Thats good to hear. He only played about 23 minutes against SAS and he had 2 days of rest, so he should be good to go IMO. Rockets really need to get through these next 4 games unscathed and then they can look into prioritizing rest. Just clinch the 1 seed even though the Warriors have all but given up on obtaining it. Maybe after the LAC game the Rockets will be 3 up.
