According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the Rockets believe swingman Gerald Green has suffered a broken left foot that could sideline him for months. Green is expected to seek out additional opinions before determining his course of treatment but the veteran will be out indefinitely for now.
Tim MacMahon of ESPN adds that while Green is expected to miss extended time, he is hoping to avoid surgery so that he can return sooner rather than later, while Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle writes that the team initially thought the injury was only a strain and further tests have been scheduled for tomorrow to confirm the diagnosis.
Green, 33, re-signed with Houston in July after agreeing to a deal in June. This will be his third consecutive season with the Rockets. In 2018/19, Green averaged 9.2 PPG and 2.5 RPG in 73 games while shooting .400/.354/.838.
