When the Houston Rockets take the floor Monday against the Dallas Mavericks for their 5th pre-season game, they will be completely healthy for the first time since the opening of training camp. Well, almost completely healthy as Marcus Camby remains injured with a plantar fasciitis.

Omer Asik was suffering from an injured calf that kept him out of practice and the first 4 pre-season games. He’s now returned and will see action in Monday’s game.

Greg Smith, who has been plagued by a hip injury, was able to practice for the first time on Saturday, while Jeremy Lin missed Wednesday’s game against the Orlando Magic with a sinus infection. Both are expected to play against the Mavericks on Monday night.

The game is set to start at 7 PM CST at Toyota Center, and will be aired on CSN Houston and NBATV.
