Hartenstein and Clark are promising options for shorthanded Rockets

The Houston Rockets have lacked size and defense, which naturally made the decision to turn to Gary Clark and Isaiah Hartenstein a no-brainer. Clark is 6-foot-9 and Hartenstein is a 7-foot rim protector who has proven in the G League that he can also get it done on offense.

The Rockets have had injuries hit them early in the season, losing Gerald Green, Danuel House and now Eric Gordon for an extended amount of time. Gordon will have knee surgery and could miss up to six weeks while Green could very well make a return for the post-season, but it’s unlikely.
