Nwaba is not exactly a household name, but he’s averaged 22.6 minutes per game for the Rockets this season. However, he suffered a sprained ankle Saturday vs. the Pelicans, and he’s expected to miss the Rockets’ next two games. Head coach Steven Silas said that Ben McLemore would absorb some of his minutes off the bench.
John Wall has led the team with a usage rate of 32.3% since James Harden was traded to the Nets, while Christian Wood leads the team with an average of 1.32 FanDuel points per minute over that time frame.
The Rockets are in a solid spot vs. the Thunder on Monday. Oklahoma City ranks ninth in pace and 23rd in defensive efficiency, which is a nice combination for fantasy purposes.
