Description: Rockets swingman Francisco Garcia is questionable for Thursday's game against Sacramento due to a sprained right ankle.
Insight: He's not fantasy worthy given his limited playing time and scoring ability. He's averaging 3.2 ppg this season.

Description: Rockets swingman Francisco Garcia will have the night off Saturday against the Pelicans. SOURCE: Rockets on Twitter
Insight: He's out with a back injury. Garcia (5.8 ppg) has been held to single-digit points in each of his last three games. He's not in the fantasy conversation.
 
2/10/2014 10:31:00 AM
Description: Houston SG/SF Francisco Garcia (left knee tendinitis) is questionable for Monday's game against Minnesota.
Insight: Garcia hasn't played since Feb 8 and is only averaging 20.3 minutes, 5.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.3 threes this season. No value here even when healthy.
 
2/5/2014 1:15:00 PM
Description: Houston G/F Francisco Garcia (knee tendinitis) says he'll play Wednesday against the Suns, according to Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Garcia missed the last eight games. He's only averaging 20.3 minutes, 5.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.3 threes this season.

Insight: He's going to be out of commission for at least a week. With Patrick Beverley set to return on Monday, Jeremy Lin will move into Garcia's role as the backup shooting guard.

Description: Rockets swingman Francisco Garcia won't be available for Saturday's game against the Bucks. SOURCE: Jonathan Feigen, Houston Chronicle
Insight: He's out with a sore left knee. It's only Garcia's second absence of the season. Garcia's knee injury should open up more minutes for Ronnie Brewer.
 
11/12/2013 6:13:00 PM
Description: Houston G/F Francisco Garcia (flu) missed Monday's game and didn't practice Tuesday but he hopes to be available for Wednesday's game, according to Mark Berman of myfoxhouston.com.
Insight: A bug is going around Houston's locker room. Garcia has made 2.0 threes per game this season but he doesn't have much fantasy value otherwise. He's splitting swingman minutes with Omri Casspi behind two players who play big minutes, James Harden and Chandler Parsons.
 
11/11/2013 6:23:00 PM
Description: Houston G/F Francisco Garcia will be a game-time decision for Monday's game due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: A bug is going around Houston's locker room. Garcia has made 2.0 threes per game this season but he doesn't have much fantasy value otherwise. He's splitting swingman minutes with Omri Casspi behind two players who play big minutes, James Harden and Chandler Parsons.
 
10/30/2013 10:41:00 PM
Description: Houston G/F Francisco Garcia drained five threes and scored 19 points in 30 minutes Wednesday night.
Insight: Carlos Delfino averaged 25 minutes, 10.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.4 threes as Houston's backup swingman last season, numbers Garcia should be able to match as he assumes that role this year.
 
7/6/2013 4:14:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Marc Stein reports the Rockets have re-signed swingman Francisco Garcia.
Insight: He'll earn $2.6 million over the next two seasons. Garcia's regular season numbers were pretty pedestrian last year (5.5 ppg on 39.3 percent shooting) but he came up big in the playoffs after Carlos Delfino went down with a broken foot (10.7 ppg, 45.9 percent from three-point range). Despite his postseason heroics, we're not expecting the 32-year-old to blow anyone away in fantasy next season.

Description: The Rockets won't be exercising Francisco Garcia's team option for next season. SOURCE: Houston Chronicle
Insight: The Rockets are trying to clear as much cap room as possible in order to land either Dwight Howard or Chris Paul in free agency. Garcia averaged 5.5 ppg in 58 games for the Rockets and Kings in 2012-13.
 
4/9/2013 10:39:00 PM
Description: Houston swingman Francisco Garcia is averaging 11.7 points and 3.0 threes over his last six games. He had 15 points in 36 minutes Tuesday night against the Suns.
Insight: Chandler Parsons and Carlos Delfino have been out of the lineup recently, giving Garcia solid playing time at the three.
 
3/27/2013 11:52:00 AM
Description: Houston SG/SF Francisco Garcia missed Sunday's game and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Indiana due to illness.
Insight: Stuck behind fantasy stud James Harden and talented SF Chandler Parsons, Garcia is getting around 13 minutes which isn't enough to be fantasy-worthy.
 
Cold2/27/2013 7:50:00 PM
Description: Swingman Francisco Garcia will make his Rockets debut Wednesday against Milwaukee.
Insight: Garcia came over in the Thomas Robinson trade last Wednesday. He's been brutal this month, averaging just 3.1 ppg on 26.7 percent shooting. The move to Houston, where he'll be behind James Harden on the depth chart, won't do anything to help his fantasy value.
 
2/20/2013 8:41:00 PM
Description: Guard Francisco Garcia will be heading to Houston along with Thomas Robinson and Tyler Honeycutt for Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich.
Insight: Garcia has been lost in Sacramento's sea of guards this season and is only averaging 17 mpg. However, there won't be many minutes available at shooting guard or small forward with James Harden, Chandler Parsons and Carlos Delfino occupying those roles.
 
12/9/2012 10:19:00 AM
Description: Kings guard Francisco Garcia has moved into the starting lineup with Tyreke Evans (knee) out the last two games. He scored a season-high 12 points (5-of-13 FG) with five rebounds, one steal and two blocks Saturday.
Insight: Garcia has barely played this season -- his two highest minute totals have come in his last two games. Evans is only dealing with a bruised knee so he should be able to return full time soon, moving Garcia back to the end of the bench.
 
3/6/2011 1:35:00 AM
Description: Francisco Garcia came back from his perpetually injured calf and handed in a line of 18 points, steals, and four bombs in the loss against the Jazz.
Insight: Well hello, governor. Garcia is not going to be this good, but he has the upside with his range. He is easily on the radar in deep league for now.
 
2/8/2011 6:02:00 PM
Description: Kings coach Paul Westphal confirmed that Francisco Garcia (calf) won't even attempt to go full speed until after the All Star Break.
Insight: Garcia is one of the slower heales in the league and this time it's cost him his job. The Kings are playing well with Omri Casspi starting at small forward. (RapidDraft.com)
 
1/18/2011 3:00:00 PM
Description: Garcia is listed as day-to-day with a calf strain.
Insight: Although the same thing kept Kevin Garnett sidelined for two weeks, it's unlikely that Garcia's is that severe. It's not advisable to drop him just yet, because upon return, he will get his starting job back from Donte Greene. (RapidDraft.com)
 
1/12/2011
Description: Garcia had 26 points and four rebounds in 39 minutes of work tonight.
Insight: He is averaging 21.5 points over his last five games. He might be worth a look in most leagues as long as he continues to get playing time. (RapidDraft.com)
