Francisco Garcia (ankle) will not play in Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He is still not practicing and it is looking like this won't be the last game he misses due to his ankle. Even if he was healthy, he doesn't have a large enough role to warrant consideration in most leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Dec 13 - 11:03 AM

Francisco Garcia (ankle) will not play against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He is not practicing yet and looks like he'll miss more games. Garcia is not worth owning in almost any league now that the Rockets are getting some players back.
Dec 12 - 2:18 PM

Francisco Garcia (ankle) will not play against the Kings on Thursday.

He has been out since Dec. 6 and could miss additional time. Garcia has been hurt a lot in his career, so the Rockets are not going to rush him back. He is not worth owning in almost any league.
Dec 11 - 9:39 PM

Francisco Garcia (ankle) will not play on Wednesday.

He was questionable earlier today, but shootaround must not have went well. Garcia would have picked up some playing time because of all the injuries, but he could miss Thursday as well.

Francisco Garcia (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors

The Rockets are severely depleted, and could use all the bodies that they can muster against the talented Warriors. Garcia could emerge as a deep league asset over the short-term due to increased opportunity, but owners in standard leagues can do better. if he sits this one out, expect Trevor Ariza to play big minutes down the stretch.
Dec 10 - 10:57 AM

Francisco Garcia (ankle) is doubtful for Wednesday against the Warriors.

The Rockets are losing guys left and right, but they continue to win games. They went with a number of small lineups and even had James Harden at power forward on Saturday. Garcia can be left alone in almost all leagues.
Dec 8 - 2:45 PM

Francisco Garcia injured his ankle during Saturday's game, and will not return.

This does not bode well for the Rockets, as they are incredibly thin with several key injuries. Garcia does not have a large enough role for standard league consideration, so if he misses more time his minutes would likely be soaked up by Trevor Ariza and James Harden. We will update Garcia's status as needed.
Dec 6 - 8:59 PM

Francisco Garcia scored five points with three assists and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Wolves on Friday.

He is looking at an increased role with the Rockets losing yet another forward because Kosta Papanikolaou suffered a knee injury. Garcia should be able to get minutes in the 20s against the Suns on Saturday, so give him a look as a cheap play in daily leagues.
Dec 6 - 1:18 AM

Francisco Garcia (illness) did not practice on Monday.

He has an illness and will likely be able to suit up for Wednesday against the Wolves. Garcia has no fantasy value.
Nov 10 - 4:50 PM

Francisco Garcia has officially retired from international play.

Following the Dominican Republic's loss to Slovenia at the FIBA World Cup of Basketball, Garcia decided to call it quits on international play. "I’ve played my last games with Dominican National Team. I am proud of having played 11 years with the national team," said Garcia. The 32-year-old will be back in a similar role with the Rockets this season after averaging 5.7 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 1.3 three-pointers during the 2013-14 campaign and does not warrant fantasy consideration in standard leagues.

He had a solid event, averaging 17.6 points, 3.2 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.2 blocks and 3.6 triples. Garcia will be in a similar role with the Rockets from last season and should get in the rotation, but he won't be worth drafting in most leagues.

Francisco Garcia (ankle) will not play vs. Team USA on Wednesday.

The Dominican is going to be in a little bit of trouble today. Team USA has been rolling the entire tournament and should dominate again. As for Garcia, his injury is minor and he should be fine for training camp. He's not worth targeting in almost any format.
