Rockets guard Chase Budinger came down awkwardly on his ankle in the fourth quarter of the Rockets game in Indiana tonight. He had to be helped off on the shoulders of his teammates, and his status is currently unknown. More as this develops.
Budinger had just finally broken out of a shooting slump to start the season, and any prolonged absence would probably increase the minutes for Courtney Lee. It didn’t look too bad, but we’ll see. My complete guess would be that he might miss the Knicks game on Sunday before coming back next week.
