24 gets buddy-buddy w/sportswriters like Blinebury, Wang Meng, Bucher, and in return, they never write a bad peep about him.

Rockets battle for roster spot about performance, not need. But for now, what do they need?


Rockets coach Rick Adelman said that it was still too early to cite trends of training camp, but as he addressed more specific questions, he was clearly pleased with the play of forward/center Alexander Johnson and impressed with point guard Ishmael Smith.

Johnson is filling in at center with Yao Ming's minutes limited and with Brad Miller out. Smith picked up a few extra reps with Kyle Lowry out of Tuesday's practice. Both are among the five players in camp with non-guaranteed or partially guaranteed contracts likely fighting for a roster spot.

Rockets notes: Adelman likes team's depth at point

Deep at point
[size=117]Even though point guard Kyle Lowry sat out Tuesday's practice with a bruised knee, Rockets coach Rick Adelman considers the position so deep that he will face tough roster decisions.

Shooting guard Courtney Lee picked up extra repetitions at point guard with Aaron Brooks and Ishmael Smith.

Adelman believes Lee could man the position for limited stretches and that Smith has been "impressive."

"Ish is very good, and Courtney can get by (at point guard) for short times," Adelman said. "We've been kind of forced to do that at camp because Kyle went out. Both are good players, and Ish is a true point guard. We're going to have some decisions to make.

"The one thing (Smith) doesn't do well

Big Yao had a scare on Day 3 of the training camp.

He rolled and tweaked his ankle !!! :shock:

But luckily it was his right and not the left ankle, and it was minor.

Yao need to pace himself, not get banged up so soon.

It was not serious. As Yao Ming said afterwards it happened very often in scrimmages as after all, basketball games are intense and physical.

Ankle twist for Yao

Rockets center Yao Ming turned an ankle during Wednesday's practice, but it was not a source of concern.

The incident was with his right ankle, not on the surgically repaired left side. .
And he tested the ankle for a few minutes without problem before the decision was made to hold him out of the remaining scrimmages as a precaution.

"It's not bad," Yao said. "I'll be back tomorrow. It happens. I step on people's foot."

Yao could practice today, but coach Rick Adelman intends to give him a day off in Austin this week to get him for more time in the next day's workouts.

Guys roll ankles and jam fingers playing basketball.

I'm sure all you guys who've even played in the park have done it many times.
