The Houston Rockets shut down Kyle Lowry and Kevin Martin for the rest of the year

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by alleyoop on Monday 23 April 2012 at 2:30 pm

The Rockets have decided to shut down 26-year old point guard Kyle Lowry (sports hernia) and 29-year old shooting guard Kevin Martin (shoulder) for the rest of the 2011-12 season. Lowry played in 47 games (38 starts) for the Rockets this year and he averaged 32.1 minutes, 14.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 1.6 steals per game. Martin played in 40 games (all starts) for the Rockets this year and he averaged 31.6 minutes, 17.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. The Rockets are 1.5 games behind the Utah Jazz for the last playoff spot, with 1 game left to play…so it made sense to shut down Lowry and Martin.

The Houston Rockets sign Earl Boykins for the rest of the 2011-12 season

Blogged under Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by alleyoop on Sunday 15 April 2012 at 3:06 pm

The Rockets have signed 35-year old point guard Earl Boykins for the rest of the season. He has played in 6 games (0 starts) for the Rockets so far this year and he is averaging 15.0 minutes, 5.7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. Boykins is only shooting 35.5% from the floor so far for the Rockets, which isn’t too good. Boykins probably won’t see much P.T. the rest of the way, unless Goran Dragic or Kyle Lowry get injured.

Marcus Camby has been rock solid for the Houston Rockets

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by alleyoop on Sunday 15 April 2012 at 2:02 pm

38-year old center Marcus Camby has really played well since coming over from the Rockets in a deal at the trade deadline. Camby has played in 14 games (8 starts) for the Rockets so far this year and he is averaging 24.4 minutes, 7.4 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.9 blocked shots per game. The Rockets have a solid tandem at center with Marcus Camby and Samuel Dalembert, which is going to cause matchup problems in the playoffs (assuming the Rockets make them) for opposing teams.
