According to Chris Haynes, the Jazz, Hornets, Nets and Rockets are all interested in free agent swingman Francisco Garcia.
Garcia has proved to be a decent role player and is capable of the occasional big game, but there's no reason to think he'll be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues, regardless of where he lands. Jul 8 - 11:24 PM

Date:

Francisco Garcia has opted out of his contract with the Rockets and will be an unrestricted free agent.

The move was expected and the Rockets have to be happy about Garcia opting out to give them more cap space. It's possible he will return, but the Rockets aren't going to be chomping at the bit to bring him back due to how often he misses games due to injury.
Jun 30 - 9:19 AM

Francisco Garcia will not play vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday.

The Rockets are short on players tonight and we may get to see some serious run out of Troy Daniels and Omri Casspi. Garcia's DNP will likely be more precautionary than anything.
Apr 16 - 8:08 PM

Francisco Garcia (back) played 14 minutes against the Spurs on Monday with two points and three boards.

He missed Saturday's game due to a back injury and was a game-time call tonight. Garcia won't have much opportunity while Chandler Parsons and James Harden are active.
Apr 14 - 11:18 PM

Francisco Garcia said he will play against the Spurs on Monday.

The Rockets will be close to full strength while the Spurs will not. Garcia won't have much of a chance to shine with Chandler Parsons (wrist, hip) good to go. He's not a fantasy option.
Apr 14 - 7:01 PM

Francisco Garcia will be a true game-time decision on Monday due to a back injury.

He's too risky to use in any fantasy leagues right now, but could end up having some decent silly-season production if he's able to go tonight.
Apr 14 - 6:28 PM

Francisco Garcia (back) went through Monday's shootaround and he may return to action vs. the Spurs.

Garcia is averaging 24 minutes per game in March but his role fluctuates from night to night, and he doesn't get enough statistics to be worth a roster spot in average fantasy leagues.
Apr 14 - 12:04 PM

Francisco Garcia (back) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He's dealing with a lower back issues and is hoping to be back on Monday vs. the Spurs. Omri Casspi is getting the start tonight and should see a nice chunk of minutes. Expect to see a lot of Jordan Hamilton, as well.
Apr 12 - 7:12 PM

Francisco Garcia (personal) is not with the team for Monday's game vs. the Bobcats.

He missed Saturday's game due to personal reasons. The Rockets didn't miss him on Saturday and he's not really in the rotation. Hopefully everything is fine and Garcia can return to the team soon.
Mar 24 - 3:47 PM

Francisco Garcia (personal) is not with the team for Saturday's game against the Cavs.

He did not play on Thursday and is out of the rotation. Garcia has no fantasy value.
Mar 22 - 5:52 PM

Francisco Garcia returned to action on Monday with six points, one board, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 12 minutes.

He was supposed to play against the Bucks on Saturday, but never had a chance. Garcia is basically out of the rotation and will not have fantasy value on the Rockets. The Rockets do have him on the trade block, which still is highly unlikely to help his fantasy value.
Feb 11 - 12:28 AM

Francisco Garcia (knee) could see some playing time against the Bucks on Saturday night.

He hasn't play since Jan. 16 with a knee issue and was expected to play on Wednesday. Garcia might not even be in the rotation due to shooting 30.0 percent in his 18.0 minutes per game in January, so he's well off the radar in fantasy leagues.
Feb 8 - 7:11 PM

Francisco Garcia (knee) said that he will return to action vs. the Suns on Wednesday.

Garcia hasn't played since Jan. 16 and he's likely to play limited minutes as he regains his conditioning. He was limited to single-digit scoring in 13 consecutive games prior to his injury, which says enough about his lack of fantasy appeal.
Feb 5 - 1:04 PM

Francisco Garcia (knee) hopes to return Wednesday against the Suns.

Garcia has missed the Rockets' last eight games with his sore left knee, but practiced on Monday and could be available Wednesday night. Garcia had only taken 31 shots in the 13 games before his injury, so his scoring upside is quite limited. While he can be a semi-valuable fantasy option as an injury fill-in, Garcia is best left on waivers in deeper leagues.
Feb 4 - 11:43 AM

Francisco Garcia (knee) was back at practice on Friday afternoon.

He's been out of the lineup since Jan. 16 due to left knee tendinitis. Garcia is believed to be on the trade block for the Rockets and has decreased his productivity as the season has progressed. Even if he comes back before James Harden (thumb), he's still only an option in very deep leagues.
