Capela is starting Wednesday at LAL. D'Antoni said he plans on a 24-24 split between Capela and Nene

Now he's played 7-8 games in a row over 30 minutes I don't think he's going to be played any less going forward

minutes need a bump...coach said hes going to get 30+ a night..last 2 weeks avgs look about right

Being a rockets fan, I've closely watched his season. His ft% has been and will continue to be above the projected number. Time for an update

He hasn't played any minutes at PF though, so it's a moot point. I expect ESPN will change Bradley's position right about when Crowder returns at SF and Bradley slides back to the 2 ;)
16.3d
bb142
Avery Bradley is starting at SF for Boston and ESPN still hasn't updated his Position, so i wouldn't expect them to look at Capela as a PF even if he plays 20min per night there.

would like to work him in somehow but already have boogie/dwight/deandre all running at C only. im punting FT so capela is ideal just am worried i cant use him half the time when there are full game days.
16.6d
joshlloyd48
I would doubt it. He has not played a single minute next to Nene this season
16.6d
stevenomes
any chance capela every becomes PF eligible in ESPN? I dont watch a lot of his games, is he always coming in at C? isnt he only like 6'9"?

hoopsD&D -- I'd go with Capela. What Nogueira is doing is interesting and in many ways real, but his role should be slightly reduced once Valanciunas is back at full strength. Capela's role seems to be growing slowly over time.

That's the thing. Management loves him, but if the coach doesn't, it doesn't mean much until pressure starts coming. It's frustrating, for sure
30.0d
EnderDantes
It pains me to see the revised projection, but I think it's justified. He looks not so great out there, isn't blocking anything, has trouble catching and/or finishing anything but a lob, and MDA has a very short leash with him.

Laynej3
100% (1) agree 
The management can have all the confidence in the world in him, but if the coach wont play him, hes not going to have the value. that being said, i am still holding, but looking for a good trade option.
30.6d
action781
100% (3) agree 
I'm holding too. He's only 22 years old and management obviously had a lot of confidence in him to come into the season with him as their starter. He's not going to block fewer shots in more minutes, mboyd. Also, he's looked good on the court when I've watched so far this season.
30.7d
JMega
I think Clint needs some adjustments. The minutes aren't there and he just isn't that great of a per minute shot blocker.
30.7d
JMega
Yikes, only 21 mins with no Nene. Lets hope Montrezl Harrell doesn't become Pringles' new favorite toy.
30.7d
G00S3
I'm personally holding - the upside is still there. I doubt they're gonna start Nene or someone else. Sure the numbers are dire right now, but it's so early. I srsly don't understand these type of comments this early in the season.
30.7d
mboyd182
Have Punt ft% team and thinking of dropping. 8 and 8 with less than a block a game is not rosterable in 12 team.

Blocks need to be revised down. He's not even close to touching 2.1. I'd be surprised if he even matches last year.

just traded him and clarkson for BG - can't deal with timeshare torture even though i'm sure he'll eventually lock up the minutes.

Thanks for the insight Action and Fisher!

100% (7) agree 
PhillyBoy, I'd say there's one key difference between Dwight and Capela. Dwight wants the offense to be slowed down and the ball dumped into him in the post so he can work in iso (and probably turn the ball over). That's the kind of play MDA has zero interest in. Capela does not want to do that.
39.9d
Fisherman805
100% (5) agree 
Capela has the backing of upper management and more importantly, Harden. Whatever Harden wants, he gets. To suppose D'Antoni starting Nene (who isn't the healthiest or fastest big) in a run-and-gun scheme, over Capela who has young legs and only needed a bigger "tank" per Harden, is quite a reach. If MDA really wants to play Anderson at the 5 for the run-and-gun scheme and punt defense and repeatedly gives up dunks and layups, yea sure. But as soon as they start losing games because no one plays defense ... So the only thing I'm afraid about is MDA's stupidity, but it looks like the upper brass and Harden should keep him in check.
40.2d
PhillyBoy
My concern with Capela is MDA. MDA wasn't a fan of dwight and isn't Capela similar to Dwight?

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 https://twitter.com/BenDuBose/status/787776115880316928

Stagger_Lee
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.

bbm1617
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.

genes1s88
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

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.

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
50.2d
johnbender
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.

100% (1) agree 
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
50.6d
Laynej3
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.
54.1d
action781
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?
54.1d
action781
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%)
