The Rockets may be adjusting their rotation.

Houston has continued to struggle this season and coach Mike D’Antoni told reporters Monday he was considering changing the team’s starting lineup. The Rockets have dropped three in a row and seven of their last nine games.

The Rockets recently inked former two-way player Gary Clark to a three-year, $3.7 million deal. Eric Gordon and Gerald Green have also contributed off their bench.

Houston finished last season with a 65-17 record and advanced to the Western Conference Finals, where it fell to the Warriors in seven games. But, it has yet to replicate that success on either end of the floor in 2018-19 as it currently stands at 11-14.

The Rockets lost forwards Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute to free agency in the offseason and brought in former star Carmelo Anthony to replace them. Houston, however, parted ways with the 10-time All-Star after just 10 games.

Houston will host the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.
