CBS Sports - 02-20


The Houston Rockets have dealt with the injury bug quite a bit this season. Star point guard Chris Paul missed 16 consecutive games with a hamstring injury earlier this season and center Clint Capela has been out of the lineup for the past 15 contests as he recovered from surgery on his right thumb. However, according to ESPN's Tim McMahon, Houston's star big man is returning to practice on Wednesday and as long as there's no setbacks, he plans to play against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday (10:30 p.m. ET -- watch on fuboTV with the NBA League Pass extension).
