Usman Garuba coming off Rockets' bench on Monday
Houston Rockets forward Usman Garuba will play with the second unit Monday in the team's game against the Utah Jazz.
Garuba drew a spot start Saturday night in place of the injured Bruno Fernando. While Fernando is expected to be out "a while," the lineup will be shaken up once again Monday. Veteran wing Eric Gordon is returning to the court after missing one game due to groin injury management, and as a result, Garuba will head back to a bench role.
Our models project Garuba for 8.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 25.0 FanDuel points across 25.2 minutes of action.
