Houston Rockets Roster Report 2009-10-30ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Aaron Brooks, Shooting guard Trevor Ariza, Small forward Shane Battier, Power forward Luis Scola, Center Chuck Hayes. Bench -- Guard Kyle Lowry, Guard Chase Budinger, Forward Carl Landry, Center David Andersen.

PLAYER NOTES:

--F Luis Scola, who seemed rusty after missing more of the previous two weeks with a sprained ankle, began the second half with the first three-pointer of his career, and then got on a roll. He scored 14 of his 21 points in the third quarter and added 11 rebounds.

--G Aaron Brooks had five of his career-high 12 assists in the third quarter, and scored 18 points, four rebounds and two steals, helping to drive the second-half turnaround.

--G Trevor Ariza continued to struggle with finding the balance between what he can do off the dribble and what will be too much, leading to six turnovers, but he also looked for his shot from the opening tip, hitting 9-of-21 to score 25 points, one shy of his career high. He also had five assists and five rebounds.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--G/F Tracy McGrady (left knee) has been working his way back from microfracture knee surgery, making only brief cameos in practice. He is scheduled for an MRI Nov. 23 before he will be cleared to return to full participation.

--C Yao Ming (left foot) is expected to miss the season after extensive surgery to repair a fractured bone and reshape the operation of his foot to remove stress on the area.
