The trade season is in and different teams are trying to make moves to bolster up their rosters. But it's a different situation for the Houston Rockets because they weren't really looking join the trade market this season. However, Rockets starting center Clint Capela recently suffered an injury which might drag the Rockets in this season's NBA trade rumors.

The Rockets are comfortable sitting at the 4th spot in the Western Conference but with Capela's leg injury, it might be a problem for them. According to the USA today, the 22-year old big man might be out four weeks due to a minor left fibula fracture.

It's just a bad time for the Rockets to lose Capela because not only does he averages 11.8 PPG, 6.0 RPG and 1.6 BLKPG, but his pick-and-roll play with James Harden poses a threat to most teams. Recently, there are NBA trade rumors that Rockets might strike a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks to solve its big man problems.

Bleacher Report reported that the Rockets might explore the big-man market this season and a couple of notable names have been mentioned. There are NBA trade rumors that the Rockets are showing interest in 76ers center Nerlens Noel and Bucks center Greg Monroe.

Noel has been included in a lot of NBA trade rumors lately and one report stated that he could go to the Toronto Raptors. But the Rockets would be a perfect fit for Noel because he is also a pick-and-roll player who could fill in for Capela's spot and he could also play defense.

However, the availability of Monroe is also something to think about for the Rockets. Monroe is a solid post up player who could also shoot and stretch the floor out. The Bucks are trying to shop Monroe but they are just waiting for the right deal.

These NBA trade rumors could happen anytime soon with only two months left in the trade season. The postseason is just around the corner and the Rockets might need to make a quick move now.
