Rockets to pick up options on Terrence Jones, Donatas Motiejunas


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) The Rockets intend to pick up the fourth-year option on the contracts of Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas, according to the Houston Chronicle on Tuesday. Head coach Kevin McHale also indicated that the power forward position is an "open competition" heading into the start of training camp.

Donatas Motiejunas scores career-high 20 points


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas turned in an effecient performance on Thursday, scoring a career-high 20 points on 9 of 11 from the floor, including 1 of 2 from behind the arc, and 1 of 1 from the charity stripe in a 129-106 win over Minnesota.

Motiejunas did all of his damage in 26 minutes of game action, also adding six rebounds and one steal. He is averaging 7.8 points and 5.4 rebounds in 19.2 minutes over his last five games.

Donatas Motiejunas getting a bit more run


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas continues to see solid playing time, and he turned in his second double-digit scoring game in a row in a 134-108 win over the Lakers Wednesday.

Motiejunas scored his 12 points on 5 of 11 shooting in the game, including a pair of 3-pointers made. The big man also added five rebounds, one block, one assist and two steals as the Rockets won easily.

February has been Motiejunas' most productive month by a wide margin six games in. He has appeared in each game and is averaging 8.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in 20.2 minutes per game.  


Donatas Motiejunas records first career double-double


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Rockets center Donatas Motiejunas put together one of the best games of his career Wednesday, as he recorded his first double-double in a 117-115 win over the Mavericks.

Motiejunas played 26 minutes off the bench and snagged double digit rebounds for the first time in his career, finishing with 13 boards. He also scored 12 points in an extremely efficient manner, connecting on 4 of 5 attempts from the field and 4 of 6 at the free-throw line.

Motiejunas has appeared in 12 of 15 games in the month of January, after appearing in just 16 games in the first two months of the season combined. He is still averaging just 4.4 points per game. 


Donatas Motiejunas puts together solid run


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) The Rockets have been giving reserve big man Donatas Motiejunas more playing time in recent games, after he reportedly requested a trade. Motiejuanas played 24 minutes and scored in double figures for the second straight game Thursday against the Thunder. 

Motiejunas ended his season-long slump from long range in the game, making 3 of 4 3-pointers. He was 6 of 9 overall for 15 points, while adding seven rebounds in 24 minutes in the 104-92 loss.

Motiejunas was just 2 of 22 from three-point range prior to Thursday's game, so hopefully this can get him going. Two of Motiejunas' three double-figure scoring games have come in the last two nights, and he is averaging just 3.9 points per game on the season. 


Report: Rockets shopping Donatas Motiejunas


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2014) Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas has played a very limited role for the Rockets this season, and he reportedly is not happy about that. According to Yahoo.com, the Rockets have been looking for possible trade destinations for Motiejunas, who wants more playing time than the 8.4 minutes per game the Rockets have been able to give him in his 17 appearances. 

Motiejunas has not exactly earned a larger role through the first few months of the season, as he is shooting just 35.4 percent from the field. Motiejunas shot 45.5 percent as a part-time starter for the Rockets as a rookie a year ago. 


Donatas Motiejunas cold from field


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas missed his only shot in five minutes of action Sunday, leaving him 0 for 5 from the field over his last three games.

Motiejunas has scored more than five points in a game just twice this season: a 12-point, 5-for-6 performance on Nov. 16; and a nine-point night on Dec. 6. He's made just 13 of his 37 shots this season.


Analyzing the Rockets' power forward battle


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2013) The Rockets' biggest question after signing Dwight Howard this offseason has been who will step up to take on the starting power forward role. Unfortunately, with less than a week left in the preseason, there really is no clarity on this situation.

Ideally, the power forward next to Howard will be someone who can stretch the floor on offense and at least rebound on defense. Unfortunately, among the frontrunners for the position right now, none seem particularly well suited to fill both necessary roles.

Terrence Jones is athletic and has solid offensive skills, but his jump shooting is still very much a question -- he has made just one 3-pointer in four preseason games. Donatas Motiejunas can stretch the floor, at least in theory, but he has not been much better than Jones. What Motiejunas does have in his favor is size and experience, as he started 14 games and nearly doubled Jones' minutes played a year ago.

The dark horse in the competition is Omri Casspi, who started at power forward in the fourth preseason game, and has really opened eyes as a floor spreader extraordinaire in the preseason. He is second on the team with 14.0 points per game, while shooting 42.1 percent with two 3-pointers per game. Casspi has neither the size nor the natural rebounding ability to be a natural fit, but his shooting brings to mind Ryan Anderson, who thrived next to Dwight in Orlando.

At this point, the battle for the four is still wide open. I wouldn't target any of this trio on Draft Day outside of extremely deep Fantasy formats. But, whichever one steps up during the season will be a hot commodity on the waiver wire.


Donatas Motiejunas can't get going in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2013) Donatas Motiejunas got the start at power forward but failed to make much of an impact for the Rockets during Saturday's preseason opener against the Pelicans.

Motiejunas missed all three of his field goal attempts and scored all his points from the charity stripe. He finished with four points, six rebounds and three assists in a 116-115 defeat.


Motiejunas remains unreliable


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2013) Rockets rookie forward Donatas Motiejunas continues to flash tantalizing glimpses of his potential, but he struggled again Wednesday against the Jazz. He scored just five points on 2 of 8 shooting in the game, the third game in a row he has scored in single figures. He added just five rebounds, one block and one steal in 26 minutes, in a 100-93 win.
