After reserve point guard Jeremy Lin went through a pregame shooting drill, the Rockets did not rule him out for Saturday’s game at Detroit. Lin is considered more likely to return from his back spasms next week, but was called day-to-day. No additional issues were found with backup center Omer Asik’s right knee in a visit to a doctor Thursday, but swelling has persisted. He did not make the trip.
Lin near return; Asik not so much
