Rockets perspective of the bubble and Westbrook’s health condition

As NBA Insider Shams Charania reported: ‘’Rockets star James Harden is feeling fine, working out and may travel with Russell Westbrook to Orlando when Westbrook clears from coronavirus.’’

As Jeff Green said recently about Westbrook’s case: ”Just making sure he’s healthy. Making sure he’s doing what he has to do to get healthy. I think that’s more important than basketball.“

“We’ll adjust when we insert each one of them in there. It’s a good adjustment though. Shouldn’t be a problem. I’m not worried about it all, other than worrying about it. You do it as a coach. Hopefully, by the first of the 8 games, we’ll be ready to go.”

Veteran Tyson Chandler spoke about his perspective around the goals that the team has set and retirement

“I like where we’re at right now. Honestly, we’re a lot better than I thought we would be. It’s been a long layoff… I was surprised. It seems like everyone’s in decent shape.”

“I’ll do myself some justice, not get ahead of myself and wait for that moment to come,” he said.

Austin Rivers is confident regarding the team’s potential but has a difficult time in the bubble

“We all know there’s three or four teams that have a legit chance of winning . We feel like we’re one of those four teams.”

“It went better than I expected. We look pretty good. Our defense surprised me more than anything else.”

“I’m losing my mind a little bit. This has been very difficult for me. I’m 20 minutes from my home… That’s where my girl is, my family is… It feels like I’m home, but I’m not home.”
