    Vipers trainer Long Lam said Capela's groin injury is a chronic one. It's a degenerative issue. Surgery could be an option, but the Rockets have chosen a conservative approach to the injury, which initially occurred during the preseason in October. Capela's minutes-restriction has yet to exceed 30 because of the cautious approach.

    I think they should shut him down instead of risking more injury. A specialist in this field should be consulted, and if he needs surgery it should be done.

    No kidding, better to fix it now, than later..but I guess at this point maybe after the season....a few weeks won't make a difference.

    His minutes are decreasing because he is hurt. I am surprised that he has been playing through a chronic injury all year around.

    putting up 30+ doesn't feel like domination in a D League were teams score over 150 points.
