The Rockets lost their second consecutive game last night in Los Angeles against the Lakers, but they'll have a chance to get back in the win column tonight in Utah. As we await that game, we'll round up a few notes out of Houston:
- Royce White and the Rockets general manager Daryl Morey will meet today in hopes of improving their plan to deal with White's mental health issues, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.
- With Mike D'Antoni set to take over as the Lakers' new head coach, Jeremy Lin acknowledged to Fred Kerber of the New York Post that if D'Antoni was still coaching the Knicks, Lin may still be in New York himself.
- As Howard Beck of the New York Times writes, Lin is enjoying a much more "low-key" season in Houston after last season's Linsanity.
- Ten games into their Rockets careers, new additions Lin and James Harden are still "feeling it out," says Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
- Earlier today, Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld identified Daequan Cook, Toney Douglas, and Marcus Morris as potential trade candidates for the Rockets.
