Patrick Patterson will miss some time after going down with a bone bruise in his right foot. Here's the release from Rockets.com:
Houston Rockets forward Patrick Patterson had a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test performed Saturday morning.
Results of the MRI revealed a bone bruise in Patterson's right foot. Patterson will be out while further testing is conducted and a medical course of action is determined.
Rookie forward Terrence Jones has been recalled from Houston's D-League affilliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, and will be with the team in time for their Sunday afternoon game against the Toronto Raptors.
After a stretch of twenty point performances, Patterson has come back to earth in December, averaging under 10 points per game over the last six games.
