Carlos Delfino will not be able to play against the Blazers on Friday night.
The backup two-guard has flu-like symptoms. He had missed Wednesday's game against the Kings with a sore right foot. Chandler Parsons will also miss the Kings game with a strained right calf.
"Yeah, Carlos isn't feeling well and Chandler's got a sore leg, so we're a little shorthanded," Kevin McHale said shortly before gametime. "Guys will have to step up and play (in their place)."
Delfino is the Rockets' leading scorer off the bench at 10.7 points a game. Parsons is the second-leading Rockets scorer overall at 15.3 points a contest.
