Description: Rockets PF/C Donatas Motiejunas could be a viable fantasy option if Dwight Howard continues to be sidelined by his knee injury.
Insight: Tarik Black would get the start, but has little fantasy value. Motiejunas would be a better option and has averaged 13.5 ppg, 10 rpg over the past two contests.

Description: After a three-game run of fantasy usefulness from Feb. 23 to March 1, Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas is averaging just 7.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 20 minutes over his last 11 games.
Insight: Motiejunas has started 13 games at power forward but shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters. Thomas Robinson has two double-digit scoring games over the last three but sandwiched between those two is a zero-point, 11-minute effort. And Greg Smith had 18 points and 19 rebounds Wednesday night, but he's averaging 6.0 ppg and 6.1 rpg in 16.5 mpg this month. It doesn't look like fantasy owners can trust any Rockets power forward.

Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas latest useful game was a 19-point effort Wednesday against Phoenix. Motiejunas added five rebounds and a block in 28 minutes of play.
Insight: Motiejunas has started seven straight games but hadn't scored more than nine points in any of his last four after producing an average of 13.7 in his first three starts.

Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas had his third straight double-digit scoring game with a career-high 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting (2-5 3PT).
Insight: Motiejunas has stepped into the starting five following the trades of Patrick Patterson and Marcus Morris while the team eases new acquisition Thomas Robinson into action. He's averaging 13.7 ppg over the last three games.

Description: Donatas Motiejunas will start at power forward again for the Houston Rockets on Friday.
Insight: Motiejunas has stepped into the starting five following the trades of Patrick Patterson and Marcus Morris. He's averaging 12 points and 6.5 rebounds over the last two games. He could be a nice short-term add while the team gets new acquisition Thomas Robinson up to speed.
