One small part of Training Camp was the injury to P.J. Tucker. Thankfully, he seems to be doing just fine.

P.J. Tucker was one of the most underrated signings of the offseason for the Rockets. Coming into Training Camp, though, he was dealing with a hamstring injury.

According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Rockets, he had returned to 100% after slowly increasing the workload each day. For the full article from Feigen, be sure to click here.

Tucker will be a vital piece to this year’s Rockets team. He can do so many things on the court. He plays almost every position and can guard them too. Tucker’s shooting fits right in with how the Rockets want to play.

How is the rest of Training Camp going? Let’s recap some of the festivities of yesterday.

Day 4 of Training Camp

Conditioning is a big part of Training Camp and this year is no different. That’s what the last couple of days have seemed to focus on in particular.

Here’s what James Harden had to say about their conditioning:

James Harden has definitely lost some weight going into the new season. Here is an example of some of the conditioning that has been happening:

Stairs are pretty brutal, but the Rockets players are working hard!

It is certainly nice to see the Rockets getting back to business. The first preseason game is on Tuesday against the new-look Oklahoma City Thunder. It will be pretty interesting to watch Melo play against the Rockets.
