After missing six of the Rockets last eight fixtures with a knee injury, Kenneth Faried returned last night, recording a double-double in the teams win over the Kings. This leaves Gerald Green as the teams only doubt, although the Houston Chronicle is reporting that the 33-year-old could return for the game in LA.
