Omer Asik is expected to be back at practice on Monday and suited up for the Rockets’ game against the Celtics on Tuesday, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
The center did not play in the Rockets’ last two games and only played four minutes in the previous game. Asik wasn’t even on the bench in their last game against the Nuggets at the Toyota Center on Saturday night, with head coach Kevin McHale saying before the game that Asik was “not available.”
Late last week, Yahoo Sports reported the Rockets began to engage in trade discussions for Asik.
