The Rockets host the San Antonio Spurs at the Toyota Center Thursday for the final game of the Houston show slate. If you’re wondering how you can see the action live, you’ve come to the right place.
After missing the first three preseason rounds with a left elbow, striker Christian Wood was upgraded to a tackle for the weekend Thursday and could be close to his debut in Houston.
Signed in the offseason, the 25-year-old is expected to be a starting point for the Rockets when the regular season opens next week.
Here’s when to look into the fourth preseason game:
Date: Thursday, Dec. 17
Time: 7pm Medium
TV Channel: AT&T SportsNet Southwest
Live stream: fuboTV in Houston Markets (watch for free)
The Rockets are 2-1 in the preseason after beating the Spurs, 112-98 (box score), Tuesday night, while the Spurs are 0-2 after a loss in Houston and at home in Oklahoma City last Saturday.
Houston finished 44-28 and ranked No. 4 in the Western Conference in the 2019-20 season, while San Antonio was 32-39 and at No. 11.
Lineups are projected from official NBA.com game notes and have not yet been confirmed by head coaches Stephen Silas or Gregg Popovich. If Wood is cleared to play, it is not yet clear whether he would start for the Rockets, or whether he would be limited to a smaller off – the – bench role.

Guard: John Wall Guard: James Harden Next: Eric Gordon Next: PJ Tucker Center: DeMarcus Cousins
