In the first game of a road in a row, John Wall and the Houston Rockets visit Gordon Hayward and the Charlotte Hornets on Monday

What is most interesting from a Houston’s perspective is that neither Wall nor Victor Oladipo are listed in the official injury report for Monday’s game, neither of those two veterans have played at either end of a tackle in the 2020-21 season, and up until this one At point, the Rockets (11-11) have decided to postpone their absences at different ends

It is possible that head coach Stephen Silas may choose to revise the standard “maintenance” protocol for at least part of this duo, or the Rockets could consider the game in Charlotte (11-13) on Monday easier to win watch than Tuesday’s game in New Orleans (10-12)

With the big star Christian Wood on indefinitely sideline with a sprained right ankle, the Rockets need all the wins they can get in the meantime.While Houston won seven out of eight before Wood’s last injury, they lost the home game on Saturday in the first match after that against San Antonio

The Hornets will be at the end of their own duel, even though both games are taking place in Charlotte – meaning there is no journey in between.The Hornets can also benefit from the fact that the game has a lunchtime start time on Sunday thanks to the Super Bowl they have a few hours more rest than the teams normally have in successive scenarios

At the start on Sunday the Hornets drove past the Wizards (119-97) (box score), with Rozier and Hayward scoring 51 points

Between Rozier, Graham and a star rookie in Ball, the Hornets are pretty guard-heavy, which could be a factor in the Rockets’ obvious decision to play both Wall and Oladipo in that game, and Silas will be around 90 minutes before the tip meet with the media on Monday Then there could be a final confirmation of the team’s plans
