Asik missed his second straight game Sunday because of a strained right calf.

Asik averages 7.4 points and 10.0 boards.

Asik returned Tuesday after being out with lower back pain.

Asik had not played since a Nov. 14 whooping by 48 points of hapless Minnesota. French big man Alexis Ajinca, who has no fantasy value, was starting in his place.

Asik had 14 points, 17 rebounds and five blocks in Tuesday night's opener against Orlando.

While the offense may not always be there, Asik should continue to be a defensive force all season.

Trevor Ariza will join the Rockets as part of a three-team trade also involving the Pelicans and Wizards. Houston will send center Omer Asik, forward Omri Casspi and cash considerations to New Orleans.

Washington will receive center Melvin Ely and a trade exception as part of Tuesday's trade, in which the Wizards will sign Ariza before sending him to Houston. The Rockets also get forward Alonzo Gee, guard Scotty Hopson and a 2015 first-round draft pick from New Orleans. Asik averaged 5.8 points for Houston, a year after averaging a career-best 10.1 points.
