NBA.com staff report
Houston Rockets veteran guard Gerald Green could miss significant time with a broken left foot, according to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Houston Rockets guard Gerald Green is believed to have suffered a broken left foot and could be sidelined a few months, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium. Green will have more opinions on his foot this week and be out indefinitely.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) October 13, 2019
Green suffered the injury, which was initially diagnosed as a sprain, in Japan during the Rockets' preseason matchups against the Toronto Raptors. Charania reports that Green will seek more medical opinions on the injury.
Green had been averaging 10.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 14.6 minutes over three games this preseason. He was a regular contributor off the bench for the Rockets last season, posting 9.2 points in 20.2 minutes per night over 73 games.
The Rockets will likely give guards Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore increased action off the bench as Green recovers.
