With the NBA moving closer to a return date, several teams around the association have reopened their practice facility for individual workouts. On Monday, the Houston Rockets are set to become one of a few more teams looking to reopen their practice facility this upcoming week, according to GM Daryl Morey via Twitter.
Although players and staff are welcome back into the facility, the league has released guidelines for teams looking to get back into a practice routine.
Some guidelines include: no more than four players in the facility at one time, large group activities are still banned and head and assistant coaches are still prohibited from attending player workouts — according to a memo distributed a few weeks ago.

This means that the Rockets MVP, equip manager @AnthonyNila is back as well. Check out new doc short on Tony. Whose locker is the craziest? PJ, @ShaneBattier & @MettaWorld37 give their thoughts:https://t.co/93QawvqBuS
Although the league has yet to make a decision on when the league will resume, there’s optimism that at the very least. For now, though, some players will be back in the building is a small step in the right direction.
Prior to the suspension of the season, the Rockets remained sixth in the Western Conference with a 40-24 record. James Harden led the team in scoring averaging 34.4 points in 64 games played.
