2018 Fantasy Outlook
A second-round pick in 2016, Qi finally made the trek over to the United States and joined Houston for his rookie season. However, he was essentially just emergency depth for most of the year and ended up seeing action in a total of 18 games. Instead, Qi worked on his development in the G-League with with the Rockets' affiliate, playing in 24 games and posting averages of 11.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks across 25.9 minutes. His role isn't likely to change much heading into his sophomore year. Clint Capela is locked into a starting role and Nene Hilario is set to be his backup. With the Rockets also potentially experimenting with some small-ball lineups, Qi will likely spend the bulk of the season on the bench once again. Read Past Outlooks

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Qi was selected by the Rockets with the 43rd overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, but remained overseas this past season, playing for the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association. The 7-foot-2 big man averaged 16.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game in China, while knocking down 20 three-pointers. Qi is fairly mobile for his size and can hit the outside shot, so he does have some qualities that fit into today's NBA despite the small-ball movement. That said, he's still more of a developmental project and likely won't see more than a few spot minutes on a night-to-night basis. It wouldn't be surprising if he spent time with the Rockets' G-League affiliate.
