Rockets.com’s Jason Friedman reports that Rockets guard Aaron Brooks will miss tonight’s game against the Trail Blazers with an aggravation of his earlier ankle injury.
The ankle, which he originally hurt against San Antonio in November, had been slowly building up strength. His minutes had been up in each of the last five games he’s played. No word yet on the long-term severity of the issue. We will update this as we get more news, but it looks like Courtney Lee may see an increase in minutes as the backup point guard for Kyle Lowry for at least tonight.
