Reinforcements are coming.
Thomas Robinson and Francisco Garcia, who the Rockets acquired in a trade last week, have been cleared to practice with the Rockets on Monday.

Tyler Honeycutt, the other player brought in from the trade with the Sacramento Kings, has been assigned to the Rockets' D-League affiliate.

Robinson was the centerpiece in the deal that sent Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich to Sacramento. Robinson, 21, was the fifth overall pick in the past draft. He has averaged 4.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game while playing in just under 16 minutes per game.

Garcia is in his eighth season in the NBA, all with the Kings. He is averaging 5.2 points per game.

Both players will have two days of practice before the Rockets host the Bucks at the Toyota Center on Wednesday night.
