Hilario is questionable for Thursday's game against the Suns with a sprained foot, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hilario was given a doubtful designation earlier in the week, but appears to have been upgraded to questionable after Thursday's shootaround. The 35-year-old has averaged 8.2 points and 3.0 rebounds across 14 minutes of action this season. If he's able to return, he'll likely take minutes away from Tarik Black.

Hilario (foot) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Suns, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hilario has missed the team's past two games while dealing with a foot sprain. In his stead, Tarik Black has been the main beneficiary, posting 10.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 1.0 steal across 17.0 minutes per game over that stretch. More word on Hilario's availability should come after Thursday's morning shootaround.

Hilario has been diagnosed with a right foot sprain and will miss Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

EDGE Analysis

It was originally thought the veteran was dealing with an ankle injury, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Until word comes regarding the seriousness of the injury, Hilario should be considered day-to-day following Tuesday's contest. In his absence, Tarik Black will help fill in backup minutes at center behind starter Clint Capela. In games where Black has seen at least 10 minutes this season, he's posting 6.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.7 blocks.

Hilario (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hilario tweaked his ankle during Saturday's contest and with the Rockets heading into the second night of a back-to-back, they'll try and avoid putting too much strain his ankle too soon. That means Hilario will get the night off Sunday, with his next chance to take the court on Tuesday against the Raptors. With Hilario out, Tarik Black is expected to handle backup center duties, likely leading to increased playing time for him.

Hilario won't return to Saturday's game after suffering a right ankle injury, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The seriousness of the injury has yet to be disclosed, though he should be considered questionable for the team's game Sunday against the Pacers. In Hilario's absence, Tarik Black will seemingly handle the role of backup center.

Hilario could be rested for either Saturday's game against the Grizzlies or Sunday's game against the Pacers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The team wants him to sit out one night of a back-to-back, though it seemingly depends on whether or not they need the big man to help guard Marc Gasol on Saturday. Whichever night he ends up sitting out, Tarik Black will likely be the main beneficiary.

Hilario had 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 19 minutes during Sunday's 137-110 win over the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Hilario saw a season high in minutes, and he made the most of them. Combine the fact that the Rockets play as much small-ball as any team in the league with the emergence of starting center Clint Capela and it's no surprise why Hilario is stuck fighting for the scraps in terms of playing time. Hilario has appeared in eight of 11 tilts, and he is averaging 14.9 minutes per game.

Hilario (Achilles) "seems available" for Friday's game against the Hawks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

It doesn't sound like it's a guarantee that Hilario sees the court, so fantasy owners will want to avoid him at all costs Friday. Still, he could come off the bench for a handful of minutes to relieve Clint Capela. He'll have to battle Tarik Black for reserve center minutes.

Nene (Achilles) is considered questionable for Friday's game against Atlanta, according to the team's game notes.

EDGE Analysis

The designation could simply be precautionary, though it's worth noting that the veteran missed a pair of games last week with soreness in his left Achilles. Nene has played in each of the last three contests, seeing 15, 10 and 14 minutes, respectively.
