Daishen Nix starting for Rockets on Saturday; Josh Christopher to bench
Houston Rockets guard Daishen Nix will start Saturday in the team's game against the Detroit Pistons.
Nix has been coming off the bench when the Rockets are at full strength. However, they won't be on Saturday, as three starters - Jalen Green, Kevin Porter Jr. and Alperen Sengun - are sidelined. With Nix in the first unit backcourt, Josh Christopher is headed to the bench.
In 36 games this season, Nix is averaging 3.3 points, 1.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 9.6 FanDuel points.
