The Houston Rockets' season is coming to a close, as the team has just 25 games remaining. The Rockets' chances of reaching the play-in tournament are also coming to a close.

At 25-31, the Rockets find themselves 4.5 games back of the tenth and final seed in the Western Conference. The Rockets' close to the season is still important, as they want to go into the offseason on a high, while also finding out who they need to keep vs. who they can part with. 

With that being said, I wanted to put together a bite-sized progress report for every guy on the roster, including those that probably won't be in the Space City much longer.

Here are my one-sentence expectations of everyone currently on the Rockets' packed roster.

Evaluating the Rockets' players with 25 games to go

Alperen Sengun

Much better offensively in 2023-24 with more freedom, but need to develop a 3-point shot amd has room to grow on defense.

Jalen Green

Far too inconsistent, considering his potential and immense talent.

Fred VanVleet 

Much needed veteran and table-setter, however his shot diet leaves alot to be desired and he gets too laser focused in Alperen Sengun at times.

Dillon Brooks 

Really strong start to the season but has shown flashes of what got him in the doghouse in Memphis.

Jabari Smith 

Has become one of the Rockets' most consistent performers after early struggles, and has been especially dominant on the glass.

Cam Whitmore 

Dynamic scorer, but still raw and unpolished, and has work to do with processing and making decisions.

Amen Thompson 

Better than advertised defensively and has proven that he's ready to be inserted in the starting lineup now. 

Jock Landale

Bad signing, in every facet.

Jae'Sean Tate 

Another year of providing stellar defense and toughness, while also proving just how much wing depth the Rockets have.

Aaron Holiday 

Wasn't expected to have much of a role but turned into a clutch performer and great shooter, despite being on the veterans-minimum.

Jeff Green

Still possesses great athleticism for a 37-year-old but shouldn't be asked to be a reserve big man.

Reggie Bullock 

41 percent long-range shooter who can't get on the floor because of deficiencies on the defensive end.

Tari Eason 

3-and-D wing has been missed dearly, as the team has gone 13-21 without him.
