HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610)- After missing the last two games with an upper respiratory infection, Rockets center Clint Capela expects to return to the floor when the team visits the San Antonio Spurs Tuesday night. 

Capela returned to practice Monday and said he had been bedridden for the last week and had to visit the hospital for an IV.

In 15 games this season, Capela is averaging 14.6 points and 14.7 rebounds per game. He has grabbed at least 19 rebounds in his last seven games.

Capela and Danuel House Jr. missed Saturday's win over the Atlanta Hawks due to illness, and while Capela is due back Tuesday, Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni said House is doubtful, though he will travel with the team.
