Sampson: Smith, Parsons would be missed if out
Chandler Parsons and Greg Smith, who left Monday’s practice early with knee injuries, did not practice on Tuesday.
“Chandler and Greg did not practice today,” head coach Kevin McHale said, “so I guess we’ll have to wait and see how they feel tomorrow.”
The Rockets host the Lakers on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
Parsons on Monday said he hurt his knee when he banged knees with Terrance Jones before the Knicks game. Smith’s injury is on the same knee that has forced him to miss 20 games this season.
“Well, they didn’t practice so I assumed if they didn’t practice,” head coach Kevin McHale said, “they were hurting and we’ll see what happens tomorrow.”
Parsons is averaging 17.2 points and 5.4 rebounds this season. In just nine games this season, Smith has averaged 3.3 points and 2.6 rebounds.
Omer Asik is still out with a knee injury.
