KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.
SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: MARCUS THORNTON is the only one guaranteed a consistent role on the perimeter . . . ISAIAH THOMAS was the story of the second half for the Kings. He can fill up the box score, but at 5-foot-9 (at best) he's too much of a defensive liability and not a point guard . . . AARON BROOKS is the most talented guard on this team. He's had attitude problems in the past, but he could, and should, lead this team . . . Now that he remained in Sacto, TYREKE EVANS will be playing off the ball at the three against his wishes . . . The Kings will keep on trying to unload JOHN SALMONS, who's not a useful NBA player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE should have a role off the bench, but his ball-handling is not where it has to be for an NBA point guard . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA's chance seems to have passed him by. FORWARDS: THOMAS ROBINSON should emerge as a starter early in his rookie year. He has his flaws on both ends of the floor, but he brings energy and doesn't need a lot of touches to get his points . . . Even if Robinson knocks him to the bench, JASON THOMPSON should play the five at times and see close to starter's minutes . . . JAMES JOHNSON should also play big minutes soon considering his ability to make positive contributions without a lot of touches . . . CHUCK HAYES should continue to play second-unit minutes as a glue guy . . . TRAVIS OUTLAW has regressed to the point that he's lucky to have a roster spot . . . TYLER HONEYCUTT has an intriguing skill set as a defensive-minded point forward, but he's likely ticketed for the D-League again. CENTERS: DeMARCUS COUSINS came on strong late last season. There's no doubt he has All-Star potential, but between his awful shot selection and occasional attitude problems, he just hasn't lived up to his potential. After Team USA passed on him this summer because of reported maturity problems, he might still not get it.

*Rockets-Kings Preview* =======================

By DAN BURCH STATS Writer

Houston (41-33) at Sacramento (27-47), 10:00 p.m. EDT

James Harden might be back in the lineup for the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night, but they may not even need him.

The Rockets look to maintain their grip on a playoff spot when they meet the Sacramento Kings to start a three-game road trip.

Harden, fifth in the NBA with 26.0 points per game, missed his second straight contest Monday with a sore right foot. The Rockets didn't miss him at all, jumping out to a 25-point lead en route to beating Orlando 111-103 for their fifth win in seven games.

Houston (41-33) was also missing second-leading scorer Chandler Parsons, out with food poisoning, but the team never trailed as Omer Asik matched a career-high with 22 points and Jeremy Lin had 19 points and 11 assists.

"You can always do anything with any five players," Lin said. "It's just a matter of buying into it and going through the kinks of doing something new at this point."

The Rockets are seventh in the Western Conference and have been resting Harden to give his foot a chance to heal in time for the playoffs. Houston trails Golden State by one game for the sixth seed.

Harden said Monday his injury \2013 suffered Feb. 12 against the Warriors \2013 was "getting better every single day."

The Rockets have played once on the road over their last 10 games, a 103-94 loss to Memphis on Friday. They have struggled away from Houston, posting a 14-22 record that includes a 117-111 defeat to Sacramento on Feb. 10.

The Kings (27-47) have long been out of the playoff race, but the organization is fighting for something larger Wednesday. Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson will be in New York to present to NBA owners a plan to keep the Kings from moving to Seattle, including an ownership group and approved arena financing plan.

The owners meet in mid-April to vote on whether to accept a possible bid from Seattle that would clear the way for the Kings to relocate.

"Nobody knows if this story will last until the 18th and 19th, if it will end this week, if it will go to Seattle or if it will go to Sacramento," said James Ham, who covers the team for the website Cowbell Kingdom and was a producer of the documentary "Small Market, Big Heart," which chronicled Sacramento's fight to keep the Kings from moving to Anaheim. "There's no rhyme or reason to this story. It goes where it wants to go, and there's no stopping it.

"There is no end to this story yet. Their last chapter hasn't been told yet. And until it is told, I think a lot of people aren't sleeping well, be it Seattle, be it Sacramento, be it at the NBA offices."

Sacramento has been off since a 103-98 loss to the Lakers on Saturday in the opener of a five-game homestand. The Kings failed to win three in a row for the second time this season.

This game marks the first matchup since these teams completed a trade at the Feb. 21 deadline that sent Francisco Garcia, Thomas Robinson and Tyler Honeycutt to Houston in exchange for Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich.
