3/27/2015 11:04:00 AM
Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas is questionable for Friday's game against Minnesota due to a sore lower back.
Insight: If Motiejunas can't play it would open the door for Josh Smith to play big minutes.
 
Hot3/17/2015 10:27:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas led Houston with 23 points in the, 107-94, victory over the Magic on Tuesday.
Insight: Motiejunas was 8-for-12 from the field, going 2-for-2 at the 3-point line. He also had seven rebounds and four assists.
 
Hot2/2/2015 11:30:00 AM
Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas should be picked up in all leagues where he is still a free agent.
Insight: Motiejunas has averaged 21.0 ppg, 7.0 rpg over his last three games and Dwight Howard is expected to miss about one month due to his knee injury.
 
1/30/2015 10:07:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas led the team with 26 points in the victory over the Celtics.
Insight: Motiejunas is getting a great opportunity with Dwight Howard out for the foreseeable future. With James Harden struggling Friday, Motiejunas took over, going 11-of-16 from the field, with 12 rebounds. Motiejunas is one of a couple Rockets' players that could really benefit without Howard in the lineup.
 
1/10/2015 10:35:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas had a double-double on Saturday against the Jazz.
Insight: Motiejunas had 14 points and 10 rebounds. He shot 6-of-6 from the field and made a 3-pointer. Motiejunas took advantage of an off night from Dwight Howard, so fantasy owners shouldn't count on this happening very often.
 
Hot12/14/2014 11:00:00 AM
Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas scored a career-high 25 points against the Nuggets on Saturday.
Insight: This is a big deal considering Dwight Howard was back in the lineup and played 30 minutes. While Howard led the team in scoring with 26 points, Motiejunas had 25 points on 11-of-19 shooting with five rebounds. Motiejunas may remain fantasy relevant even with Howard back, but we will have to see what happens once Terrence Jones comes back.
 
Hot11/30/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas scored 20 points playing for the injured Dwight Howard on Sunday.
Insight: Motiejunas will continue to be fantasy relevant as long as Howard is out. In addition to the 20 points, Motiejunas also had six rebounds and four assists.
 
Hot11/25/2014 11:54:00 AM
Description: Rockets PF/C Donatas Motiejunas could be a viable fantasy option if Dwight Howard continues to be sidelined by his knee injury.
Insight: Tarik Black would get the start, but has little fantasy value. Motiejunas would be a better option and has averaged 13.5 ppg, 10 rpg over the past two contests.
 
1/7/2014 7:46:00 PM
Description: The Rockets are trying to trade Donatas Motiejunas, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of yahoo.com.
Insight: Motiejunas wants more playing time. He's played just 17 games and is averaging 8.5 minutes per game this season.
 
3/28/2013 9:40:00 AM
Description: After a three-game run of fantasy usefulness from Feb. 23 to March 1, Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas is averaging just 7.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 20 minutes over his last 11 games.
Insight: Motiejunas has started 13 games at power forward but shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters. Thomas Robinson has two double-digit scoring games over the last three but sandwiched between those two is a zero-point, 11-minute effort. And Greg Smith had 18 points and 19 rebounds Wednesday night, but he's averaging 6.0 ppg and 6.1 rpg in 16.5 mpg this month. It doesn't look like fantasy owners can trust any Rockets power forward.
 
3/13/2013 10:37:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas latest useful game was a 19-point effort Wednesday against Phoenix. Motiejunas added five rebounds and a block in 28 minutes of play.
Insight: Motiejunas has started seven straight games but hadn't scored more than nine points in any of his last four after producing an average of 13.7 in his first three starts.
 
3/1/2013 9:48:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas had his third straight double-digit scoring game with a career-high 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting (2-5 3PT).
Insight: Motiejunas has stepped into the starting five following the trades of Patrick Patterson and Marcus Morris while the team eases new acquisition Thomas Robinson into action. He's averaging 13.7 ppg over the last three games.
 
3/1/2013 6:56:00 PM
Description: Donatas Motiejunas will start at power forward again for the Houston Rockets on Friday.
Insight: Motiejunas has stepped into the starting five following the trades of Patrick Patterson and Marcus Morris. He's averaging 12 points and 6.5 rebounds over the last two games. He could be a nice short-term add while the team gets new acquisition Thomas Robinson up to speed.
