Rockets’ Terrence Jones spent night in hospital, out “a while” with rib injury

It happened in the middle of the first quarter: In the scramble for a loose ball, Wilson Chandler pushed the Rockets’ Terrence Jones, who fell forward and hit his ribs on the knee of Kenneth Faried.

Jones left the game not to return and spent Thursday night at the hospital for observation.

Fortunately it doesn’t appear to be anything worse than that, but Jones likely misses a few games for this. He will be missed as he has had some strong games recently, such as 16 points against the Clippers and 17 against the Trail Blazers.
