Alperen Sengun (leg) starting for Rockets Sunday night; Usman Garuba back to bench

Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun is in the lineup Sunday in the team's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

What It Means:

Sengun missed Friday night's game due to a leg injury. However, he didn't carry a designation into Sunday's contest, and he has now received the official green light to play. The rookie will also start down low, sending Usman Garuba back to a bench role.

Our models project Sengun for 16.1 points, 9.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 38.0 FanDuel points across 32.3 minutes of action.
