    You'd opt out too if weren't part of Mike's 7 man rotation. ;)

    Go to Orlando, bench warm, away from my family, chance of catching Corona, hell nah.

    Oops.

    Saves Tilman money. Doesn't make sense for the Rockets to take somebody else to Orlando just to warm the bench and cost Tilman money. LTS FTW.

    Sign Bolden to take Thabo's spot.

    Then waive Clemons and sign Bender.

    I thought the Rockets rebounding suffered because Thabo was taken out of the rotation.

    I wonder when Thabo told the Rockets he wasn't going. Maybe Rockets could have kept Hartenstein.

    It's a 9 man rotation but CF crybabies like to exaggerate.

    Yes, but I'm a bit surprised that Thabo opted out, despite the fact that his decision is very understandable in these very trying circumstances.

    Overseas players aren't eligible. Morey won't be able to get his favorite man.
