Houston Rockets head coach J.B. Bickerstaff missed morning shoot around due to an illness, and may miss tonight’s game versus the Memphis Grizzlies.

Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reported Houston Rockets head coach J.B. Bickerstaff wasn’t at the shoot around and further noted it was due to illness.  It hasn’t been reported if Bickerstaff will miss tonight’s game verses the Grizzlies or not but if that were to happen, Coach Chris Finch would take over head coaching duties.
Finch’s most recent head coaching job was with the Rockets’ D-League team the Rio Grand Valley Vipers. He coached there for two seasons, one of which, he won the D-League championship and was named the coach of year.

J.B. Bickerstaff missed shootaround with an illness. Could be back tonight. Chris Finch would coach Rockets tonight if Bickerstaff is out.
