Christian Wood to return Thursday

USA Today Sports

Houston Rockets big man Christian Wood said he’ll return for Thursday’s game against Portland.

Wood hasn’t played since January 20 since suffering an ankle injury, but he said he’s 100% and ready to go.

DeMarcus Cousins has been filling in for Wood and producing big numbers, so we’ll see how head coach Stephan Silas manages both of their minutes.

Wood will likely continue his breakout season, where he’s averaging 23.5 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game.
