Jordan Hill Moves Up Depth Chart, Is Now Backing Up Yao Ming

After totaling just 4 minutes in the Rockets' first three games, Jordan Hill has averaged 27 minutes over Houston's last two contests. Head coach Rick Adelman recently told the Houston Chronicle that "[Hill] rebounds in traffic better than anybody we have."

The Breakdown
The center situation in Houston is looking like a merry-go-round. Brad Miller was signed to be Yao's primary back up and Erick Dampier was recently brought into the mix, so the situation is fluid and could change at any point during the season.

Hill got the start on Saturday as Yao Ming rested. Jordan's numbers thus far have not been great, but he is getting a chance and he should be claimed in deeper formats, especially if you're in need of center help.
