On Thursday, the Rockets will face the Spurs in San Antonio, Texas. Neither of these teams has had a particularly successful start to the season, but they will be hoping to change that in this game.
Injury Reports Rockets – Spurs: There are too many absences
The Houston Rockets defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 132-123 last night. Houston looked fantastic on offense, scoring consistently throughout the game. They must stay hot in this one if they are to challenge the Spurs on the road.
According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, Jae’Sean Tate (ankle) was cleared to return to the court on Monday. Tate’s participation in the activity represents a significant step forward in his recovery from a right ankle injury that has kept him out since late October.
Though the Rockets have not provided an official return date for Tate, given that he has yet to return to practice, he can probably be safely ruled out of Thursday’s game at San Antonio.

The San Antonio Spurs are coming off a 133-95 loss to the Phoenix Suns. The Spurs were terrible on both ends of the court, and they need to get more stops if they want to compete with the Rockets at home.
The following players are listed as questionable on the injury report: Doug McDermott SF (Ankle) and Romeo Langford SG (Back).
McDermott has missed the last two games due to an ankle injury, but he is expected to play on Thursday.
Langford (ankle) is listed as probable for Thursday’s game against the Rockets due to back tightness, according to Jeff Garcia of KENS 5 San Antonio.
Due to an ankle sprain, Langford had only played eight minutes in the previous game. Instead, according to the injury report, he has lower back tightness, which does not appear to be a major concern.
With an ankle injury, Josh Richardson (SG) is listed as probable.
Jeremy Sochan PF (Quad), Jakob Poeltl C (Knee), and Blake Wesley SG are all out.
