11/28/2015 12:19 PM
Capela will continue to start in the frontcourt next to Dwight Howard for the foreseeable future. It sounds like Bickerstaff is going to give Capela an earnest look at claiming the starting job. He played 25 minutes Friday in his start.

Playing expected to start at center Open link
11/6/2015 2:30 PM
Capela is the expected starter at center Friday with Dwight Howard out. Capela has only been playing about 18 minutes per game even when starting in place of Howard, so temper your expectations in daily games.

Just spoke with Ben DuBose who covers the Rockets, and he isn't concerned about Rockets moving away from Capela. Think he played less minutes due to hamstring. Here is the tweet
Likewise getting concerned.. Took him at the start of the 7th (86nd pick) in a 14-team league as part of a FT% punt build. Thought it was steal at the time, now not so sure.
It was a similar experience last year. He has some great per 36 numbers but wasn't on the court long enough. He carried a 4th round valuation (per my league settings) for a few short days before being rapidly downgraded unfortunately. I do agree with @pricker98 that Nene isn't likely to make it through the first month unscathed so hopefully Capela soaks up the minutes.
took him in the sixth, we had drafted start of Oct. now i'm really nervous. :'(
could see it being a minor downgrade but you know its just a matter of time before Nene comes down w some injury
I moved him down to 27 mpg
Did his projections get downgraded already??
There is some danger there, but the Rockets are going to get murdered if they don't playCapela and use Nene and Harrell at centre.
Spent 6th round pick on him, hope he's gonna do well
Looks like his minutes are in danger from Nene.

Go to the settings tab. Then select team players. And then import from yahoo. This will update all roster changes
I added Clint Capela on my Yahoo fantasy league. I was wondering how long it will take until that change shows on here?
Harden/Capela pnr has looked pretty deadly so far
I like that he's the only center on the roster, but I'm not sure he's a great fit for D'Antoni ball. He has quickness, but is he a good quick pick n roll option? He'll have to rely on OReb and put backs plus hack-a FTs for his scoring.

Last season he played out of position for most of the season. When he was on the court and Howard was on the bench, his FG%, block rate and rebound rate was significantly higher and that is the situation he is in this season
Why is Capela ranked so high? I dont see it based off last year. Is it the departure of Howard?

If you're punting FG%, it doesn't make much sense to keep Capela on your roster long term. One of his biggest positive is his FG%. He would make a great trade target to a punt-FT% owner though, and I would definitely keep him going into the draft with the intent to trade him ASAP post-draft.
I'm tempted to throw him back for a better fit. But I think the value I can keep him at ($7 in a $250 cap league) should make him very tradeable and I should just keep him for now for value and figure out fit down the road. Thoughts?
Is he ownable in H2H leagues if you're not punting ft%? Can Paul George, James Harden, Jimmy Butler, DA Russell, Eric Bledsoe (all my keepers) and others keep me competitive/winning in FT%? (I'm punting fg%)

Punt FT% builds, eat your heart out.
