The Houston Rockets will be extremely short-handed in the game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.

More specifically, the Rockets will be without eight players in the game, while another three are questionable.

Avery Bradley (personal reasons), Sterling Brown (face lacerations), Dante Exum (right calf strain), Eric Gordon (right groin strain), David Nwaba (right wrist sprain), Kevin Porter Jr. (left ankle sprain), John Wall (right hamstring strain) and D.J Wilson (Health and Safety protocols) have been ruled out for the contest.

Meanwhile, Danuel House Jr. (right ankle soreness), DaQuan Jeffries (right ankle soreness) and Christian Wood (right ankle soreness) are listed as questionable for the match vs the Lakers.

Houston has already been eliminated from the playoffs and has the worst record in the league (16-53). They have lost 43 of their last 48 games.

On the other hand, the Lakers (39-30) are fighting to exit the play-in tournament zone, as they are one win behind the sixth-placed Dallas Mavericks (40-29).
