Fortunately, this doesn’t appear to be anything too serious. But it will keep Terrence Jones out for a game.

He was driving to the airport where the Rockets were off to Phoenix for a Thursday night game, when Jones was involved in a car accident. From Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Jones comes off the bench for the Rockets and plays minutes in the teens most nights, but had almost 30 in the Rockets’ last game. Not having him leaves the Rockets shorthanded.
