Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni referred to the game against the Timberwolves as "the last one until Clint comes back probably."

The 24-year-old has missed the past 14 games with a right thumb injury suffered at Orlando on January 13th, and had broken out to start the season, averaging a career-best line of 17.6 points (63.1 FG%), 12.6 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 34.2 minutes through the first 42 games.

Houston is 19-3 when outrebounding its opponent this season and 14-20 when failing to do so.
