Thomas Robinson: Won't Play Until He Practices Next Week

Rotowire.com
Update: Rockets coach Kevin McHale said he did not expect to play Robinson until after he practices with the team next week, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Recommendation: It looks like for now the Rockets are content to play small ball with Carlos Delfino starting at power forward and bring Robinson along slowly. This is rough news for fantasy managers who took a flyer on Robinson's potential in his move to the Rockets, but we'd suggest riding out the few games he'll miss until we clearly see whether or not he's going to receive a big role in the rotation.
