Clint Capela (thumb) expected to return for Rockets on Thursday

Houston Rockets forward/center Clint Capela (thumb) is expected to play on Thursday versus the Los Angeles Lakers, barring a setback.

What It Means:

Capela underwent right thumb surgery in January and hasn't played since, a span of 15 games. He returned to practice on Tuesday night, and if everything went well, Capela should be back in action in Los Angeles on Thursday. Kenneth Faried's value is going to take a steep dip once Capela returns to full speed.

Capela averaged 40.6 FanDuel points in 42 games before the injury, with 17.6 points, 12.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.6 steals, and 1.8 blocks per contest.
