The Rockets have gotten next to nothing out of their rookies so far this year. 20-year old forward Terrence Jones has played in 11 games (0 starts) for the Rockets so far this year and he is averaging 8.3 minutes, 3.1 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game. He is only shooting 38.2% from the floor and that just isn’t going to get the job done. 22-year old point guard Scott Machado has played in only 3 games (0 starts) for the Rockets so far this year and he is averaging 3.0 minutes, 1.3 points, 0.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. 22-year old center Donatas Motiejunas has played in 7 games (0 starts) for the Rockets so far this year and he is averaging 3.6 minutes, 1.7 points, 0.6 rebounds and 0.1 assists per game so far this year. Rookie forward Royce White is about to be sent to the D-League. He has yet to play in the NBA due to mental problems. I don’t see any of these guys playing much for the Rockets unless they suffer a lot of injuries.
