The Houston Rockets have been the NBA's worst team over the last month, and a big reason for that has been the absence of Christian Wood. Wood has been out since February 4 with a sprained right ankle and the Rockets have gone 0-17 since then.
According to ESPN, Wood is on his way back, meaning things could get better for the Rockets.
