HOUSTON: GUARDS: JAMES HARDEN is a franchise player, and as one of the league's elite pick-and-roll threats, he and Dwight Howard have the potential to be dominant . . . Trade rumors will continue to circle JEREMY LIN, who isn't an off-the-ball threat to fit alongside Harden. He is, however, clearly a starting-caliber point guard . . . PATRICK BEVERLEY really shined in back-up minutes last year, and he's part of the reason that Lin is expendable. He's strong defensively, and he proved capable of running the second unit. He'll be one of the league's top back-up PGs if Lin stays . . . Rookie combo guard ISAIAH CANAAN will be developed as a spot-up shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a roster filler . . . AARON BROOKS is around as a reclamation project . . . RONNIE BREWER provides a much-needed athletic perimeter defender. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS is an elite role player. He entered the league with the reputation as a pure athlete, but it's his ability to knock down the corner three that's made him so valuable in Houston . . . GREG SMITH looks like another great find for the Rockets. He's an athletic banger who can allow Dwight Howard to roam a bit on defense . . . DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS showed flashes as a rookie, but the stretch four looks like a situational role player for the foreseeable future . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA will lend a veteran presence to the second unit . . . Versatile TERRENCE JONES could be in for more minutes as the Rockets look for the right role players . . . OMRI CASSPI might be getting his last chance at the NBA. CENTERS: DWIGHT HOWARD should be much happier in Houston, though the Rockets still have to convince him that he can dominate as a pick-and-roll player. He should make everyone forget about his season with the Lakers . . . The fact is OMER ASIK just doesn't fit alongside Howard. But if he stays somewhat happy in Houston, he could be a valuable second-unit player . . . MARCUS CAMBY has latched on to chase a ring.
SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS:Considering how exhausted he looked by the end of the Finals, don't be surprised if TONY PARKER gets more rest during the regular season . . . DANNY GREEN had a coming-out party this past June. A three-point specialist who can defend, the Spurs will lean on him more heavily during the first 82 . . . MANU GINOBILI looks oh-so-close to being done. His minutes will decline . . . MARCO BELINELLI adds quality depth behind Green. He'll take many of the minutes that used to go to Ginobili and Gary Neal, who left for Milwaukee . . . CORY JOSEPH enters the season as the favorite to back up Parker, but it's a fluid situation . . . NANDO DE COLO fell out of the rotation last season, but has enough talent that he should bounce back . . . PATTY MILLS is more of a cheerleader than a useful bench piece. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN just keeps going. The 2012-13 regular season was his best in years. The Spurs will keep his minutes in check, but he likely has another great season in him . . . KAWHI LEONARD is one of the league's elite role players, and he seems to keep getting better. He can shoot, score off the dribble and defend . . . JEFF AYRES is a skilled big man who will back up Duncan and can play alongside him for stretches. Like all of their frontcourt players besides Duncan, the player formerly known as Jeff Pendergraph, will see his playing time will fluctuate greatly depending on matchups. CENTERS: TIAGO SPLITTER continues to improve rapidly, and he'll now take the bulk of the minutes alongside Duncan. But as we saw in last year's Finals, head coach Gregg Popovich will keep him on the bench if the matchup isn't right . . . BORIS DIAW's versatility gives Pop options off the bench . . . MATT BONNER is pretty much just around to participate in the Three-Point Shootout at this point in his career.

*Rockets-Spurs Preview* =======================

Houston (11-5) at San Antonio (13-2), 8:30 p.m. EDT

Although James Harden has returned to action, there's no guarantee as to how much he'll be able to contribute Saturday night for the Houston Rockets.

Whether San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker suits up is going to be a game-time decision.

The Spurs are 7-0 home, where they have also won seven straight against a Rockets team that comes to town with Dwight Howard for the first time.

Harden came back Friday after missing three games with a sore left foot and had a season-low nine points and seven assists in 25 minutes in a 114-95 home rout of Brooklyn.

Coach Kevin McHale said that the Rockets' top scorer would not have played had Jeremy Lin not been out with a sprained right knee. Lin is out for at least two weeks.

"I was happy to have him at 25 minutes," McHale said. "Our goal was under 30. Our big thing is to see how he feels tomorrow. Hopefully, that foot feels as good tomorrow as it did today."

Parker sat out Friday's 109-91 victory at Orlando with a sprained ankle. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said there's a chance Parker will play Saturday.

"We'll see how he feels," Popovich said. "His sprain wasn't severe."

Parker averaged 24.5 points to help San Antonio (14-2) take three of four from Houston last season. Harden missed one of those contests, but averaged 30.3 in the others and also notably averaged 18.5 points in the Western Conference finals against San Antonio two seasons ago with Oklahoma City.

The Spurs have won nine of the last 13 meetings in this Texas rivalry that the Rockets hope will swing in their favor with the addition of Howard. He last faced San Antonio when his ignominious Los Angeles Lakers career ended in a first-round sweep in last season's playoffs.

Houston (12-5) has won a season-high four straight while getting a minimal contribution from Howard, who is averaging 12.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in that span.

"Everybody is learning how to still play together," he said. "We are 12-5 now. Again, we want to be a lot better team come February than we are now."

While the Rockets now must adjust to playing without Lin, the Spurs don't seem too worried about not having Parker on occasion. The Western Conference's best team got 19 points apiece from Tim Duncan and Marco Belinelli in cruising past the Magic.

"That's the way we are made," San Antonio's Manu Ginobili said. "We don't depend on absolutely one player. If we were going to miss Tony for 20 games, that's another thing. But we can replace anybody for one or two games. We are deep. That's one of the strengths of this team."

Ginobili offered his assessment of the Spurs in a similar vein to Howard's thoughts on the Rockets.

"You can't really think that you're going to start 14-2," Ginobili said. "But we know we have a good team. We know we're going to win 50 games. That's what happened last year, and I think we're a better team this year."

Houston's Chandler Parsons made all seven shots for 21 points Friday and is 21 for 27 from the field - including 9 of 14 from 3-point range - in his last three games. He averaged 17.8 points against the Spurs in 2012-13.
