Budinger Out 2-3 Weeks

Rockets guard Chase Budinger will be out two to three weeks with a sprained right ankle. Budinger turned the ankle on a drive in the second quarter of Saturday’s 95-90 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. He underwent an MRI on Sunday.

Budinger is averaging 8.2 points and three rebounds, having made 40.9 percent of his shots.

The Rockets are not expected to add a player to their roster with Budinger out. Had forward Carl Landry been out for more than just Saturday’s game, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said the team likely would have signed Mike Harris, who is averaging 26.2 points per game for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the NBA Development League.
