SH Blog: Terrence Jones set to finally return for Rockets; Knicks sign Langston Galloway through 2015-16

Terrence Jones presser

Terrence Jones could return as soon as Wednesday for the Rockets, who upgraded his status to questionable for the team’s showdown with Western rival Dallas. It’s the first time in months that the Rockets have changed Jones’ status from “out”.

Carmelo Anthony
