Green appeared to first injure himself on a drive to the basket toward the end of the first quarter. He needed a moment to himself on the court before he was able to get up and shoot his free throws. He then went straight back to the locker room for further evaluation.
The second overall pick had turned in a strong first quarter prior to the injury, recording 11 points, two rebounds and one assist. He went 4-of-5 from the field, including 1-of-2 from 3-point range.

The Rockets will certainly be hoping that injury to Green is not too severe and that Green will be able to return to play soon. The team has lost 15 consecutive games entering play on Wednesday as Green has been among a few bright spots for the team.
