The Houston Rockets have lost four of their last five games and now must prepare to survive a crucial stretch of the season without arguably their best player of the season. Starting point guard Kyle Lowry will be out of the Houston Rockets lineup for 2-4 weeks with a bacterial infection.
Three of their next five games are against the three of the top five teams in the Western Conference, including their next game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday. The Thunder have the best record in the West while the Rockets currently sit in the No. 8 spot in the playoff picture. Can the Rockets stand up?
Here is the schedule for the next five games for the Rockets while Houston waits for their point guard to mend.
