Bruno Fernando (injury maintenance) out Saturday for Houston
Houston Rockets forward Bruno Fernando will not play Saturday in the team's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Fernando made his long-awaited return to the court Friday night, earning a start down low at center. However, the team is going to be cautious with bringing him along too fast. As a result, he is listed out on the second leg of the back-to-back set due to left knee injury maintenance. Expect him back out there Monday against Denver.
In 3 games this season, Fernando is averaging 6.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 blocks and 20.2 FanDuel points.
