Guard Isaiah Whitehead is available to play Sunday against the Rockets, while center Brook Lopez will rest, the Nets announced.
Whitehead had been dealing with a sprained left knee, which kept him out of Friday's game against the Raptors. Lopez will sit as the Nets play their third game in four days. Justin Hamilton will start in place of Lopez.
The 21-year-old Whitehead is averaging 6.9 points and 2.8 assists through 31 games with the Nets.
