The Rockets got some bad news Sunday night.
Sam Dekker suffered a broken hand in the game against the Phoenix Suns and is expected to be out three to four weeks. The playoffs start in two weeks.
The play happened with 5:20 left in the fourth quarter when Dekker collided with Jared Dudley while going for a loose ball. Dekker said he knew right away as his left wrist got pinned up in the collision. The play can be seen below:
This is a blow to the Rockets for sure as their depth has been a big key to their success. Troy Williams, who had a career night in his first action as a Rocket, could see some significant time as a result.
What a start by @troywilliams_ !!! Proud of him. I'll be back for the big ones in the playoffs, thanks for the love Red Nation.
