Rockets center Greg Smith underwent an exploratory arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday to repair a medial meniscus tear and to examine changes to ligament structures in his right knee.
As the Rockets leave Thursday for a four-game road trip, the status of injured starter Chandler Parsons and key reserve Greg Smith remains unknown.
Chandler Parsons and Greg Smith, who left Monday’s practice early with knee injuries, did not practice on Tuesday.
Even with a couple of days off without a practice or a game, the Rockets season of nagging injuries continued with a pair of players unable to finish practice on Monday afternoon.
With all the injuries the Rockets have suffered this season, it’s a holiday miracle they had enough bodies with which to hold a productive practice.
