Trevor Ariza played 33 minutes on Wednesday but finished with just five points on 2-of-5 shooting, four rebounds and one steal.

Ariza is prone to disappearing during games and tonight it happened early, with zero stats to his credit until 6:05 was left in the second quarter. Solid minutes help prop up Ariza's fantasy appeal, and the same can be said for P.J. Tucker (five points, 10 boards in 33 minutes) -- Ariza, Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute are all in the bottom-20 for usage in the playoffs (among 131 qualifying players). That leaves a pretty low ceiling while Houston's go-to guys are healthy.
May 2 - 11:03 PM

The Rockets will start Chris Paul, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker and Clint Capela on Sunday.

No changes from Houston for Game 1 vs. the Wolves.
Apr 15 - 8:51 PM

Trevor Ariza, Chris Paul, James Harden, Eric Gordon and Clint Capela will all be rested for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Kings.

It's a matchup against the Kings and the Rockets are locked in as the No. 1 seed, so there's zero incentive for any of the main guys to risk getting injured tonight. Joe Johnson and Gerald Green should be busy on offense tonight with all the main guys out.

Trevor Ariza (rest) returned to the Rockets lineup and finished with 10 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one turnover across 27 minutes in a 96-94 victory over Portland on Thursday.

Ariza was rested in Tuesday's win over the Wizards. He should be good to go for Saturday's game vs. OKC as well, although his fantasy upside is limited.
Apr 5 - 11:00 PM

Chris Paul, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker and Clint Capela will start against the Blazers on Thursday.

Ariza is back after a game off on Tuesday. There's a chance he gets a few extra minutes, but the Rockets have nothing to play for.
Apr 5 - 8:10 PM

Trevor Ariza is not on the injury report for Thursday against the Blazers.

He should be good to go, assuming there's no surprise like there was for Eric Gordon today.
Apr 5 - 7:26 PM

Trevor Ariza (rest) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

The Rockets aren't even on a back-to-back set, but with the No. 1 seed all locked up, they can take a liberal approach with the random rest days. Luc Mbah a Moute will likely draw the start tonight, and there will be more minutes available for Gerald Green in the second unit. Ariza should be fine for Thursday's game against Portland.
Apr 3 - 5:16 PM

Trevor Ariza couldn't get his shot to drop on Sunday, going 2-of-7 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line on his way to seven points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.

Ariza got off to a sluggish start in this one, going 1-of-5 from the field through the first half of action, and he wasn't much better through the second half. The inefficient shooting was a team-wide trend, with the Rockets going 26-of-77 from the field and 7-of-31 from long-range, which is something that tends to happen when going up against the Spurs.
Apr 1 - 6:28 PM

Trevor Ariza (elbow) scored nine points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

Despite being on the injury report, Ariza still saw his normal playing time. There's a chance he doesn't play on Sunday, so his fantasy owners will just want to make sure he's all good.
Mar 30 - 11:58 PM

Trevor Ariza (bruised right elbow) will play on Friday vs. the Suns.

The Rockets are starting to rest their key players with the No. 1 seed locked up, so Ariza may be due for a DNP soon. As for tonight, he's a strong play with Chris Paul (hip, rest) and Eric Gordon (knee) sitting this one out.
Mar 30 - 6:22 PM

Trevor Ariza (bruised right elbow) is questionable to face the Suns on Friday.

It's a new injury for Ariza. He may have suffered this injury on Tuesday, but it doesn't sound serious. Ariza hasn't had a "rest" day yet since he got over his hamstring issue during the break, so it makes sense to hold him out. If so, that means more run for P.J. Tucker, Gerald Green, Joe Johnson and others.
Mar 29 - 5:09 PM

Trevor Ariza posted 14 points across 31 minutes in Sunday's 118-99 win against the visiting Hawks.

Ariza went 4-of-14 from the field, including 4-of-11 from behind the 3-point line. That includes an impressive 4-of-5 from behind the arc in the first quarter to set the tone early in this one. The veteran also added four rebounds with one turnover. Ariza and the rest of the starters saw some additional rest with the game getting out of hand, as the Rockets set a franchise mark with their 60th victory of the season.
Mar 25 - 11:12 PM

Trevor Ariza netted 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting Saturday, to go with four 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists over 32 minutes.

This was a nice bounce-back performance from Ariza following Thursday’s 2-of-10 shooting performance, and he had the hot hand early for Houston, opening the game with a triple while hitting four of his first five attempts. While he got his shot back on track in this one, this was also his fourth game in a row without a single steal, but he should be able to buck that trend on Sunday in Minnesota.
Mar 17 - 9:49 PM

Trevor Ariza scored 15 points with five rebounds, one assist and three triples in 31 minutes vs. the Spurs on Monday.

That's more like it. Ariza entered this contest hitting just 1-of-16 from 3-point range in his previous three games, but he found his rhythm tonight and finished 5-of-9 from the field and 3-of-7 from deep. He has early-round upside when his shot is falling, but things can get pretty ugly when it isn't. He gets a matchup with the Clippers on Thursday.
