Rockets host T-Wolves with more power in reserve

HOUSTON -- Locked in a battle with the defending champion Golden State Warriors for the top seed in the Western Conference, the Houston Rockets will initiate their stretch run healthy and energized by the reality that homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs is a possibility.

The Rockets (44-13) will host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday at Toyota Center riding a 10-game winning streak and expecting the return of forward Trevor Ariza, who has missed nine consecutive games with a left hamstring strain.

Houston will also welcome back reserve guard Eric Gordon while adding swingman Joe Johnson and center Brandan Wright, a pair of buyout signees, to their potent mix, leaving the Rockets loaded for bear as the regular season resumes.
