Houston Rockets shooting guard Jalen Green is set to return to the hardwood.

After being ruled out since last month, the No.2 overall pick of the 2021 Draft will suit up a Rockets jersey against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday, per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

Team insider Jonathan Feigen detailed in his article that Green was ramping up some conditioning in its comeback by going through full practices.

“Green went through a full practice Tuesday and a long workout afterward in a final test of his rehab.”

Before being shelved due to a hamstring strain, the lanky, 6-foot-4 product of G League Ignite was averaging 14.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 30.8 minutes.
