The Rockets got torched in the post during their loss to Minnesota on Friday and as a result there are some changes to the lineup for Sunday’s home game against the Utah Jazz.

Second-year post Patrick Patterson has been inserted into the lineup in place of veteran Sam Dalembert. There was no question Dalembert had one of his worst games of the season, but putting Patterson in against another big lineup could be trouble for the Rockets.

Patterson, who is 6-foot-9 and 235 pounds will matchup against 6-foot-10, 289-pound Al Jefferson in the middle tonight and that looks like a big mismatch. The Rockets will also be without backup center Jordan Hill, who will miss at least the next two weeks after a suffering a right knee injury during Saturday’s practice.
