Aaron Brooks severely sprained his ankle, according to Rockets doctors. Jason Friedman of Rockets.com is reporting that he will be out 4 weeks.
On the other hand, Jonathan Feigen talked directly to Brooks, and the diagnosis that he got was four to six weeks.
With how ugly it looked, it’d be a little surprising if it weren’t closer to six weeks. If you’re in a fantasy league, Kyle Lowry will be the starter in Houston as soon as he can shake his own health issues with his back. Until then, Ish Smith will keep the seat warm for both of them.
