Houston Rocket big man Clint Capela will miss 4-6 weeks with a thumb injury. Capela sustained the ligament injury to his right thumb in Sunday’s loss at Orlando. With Chris Paul out with hamstring issues and Eric Gordon nursing a sore knee, the injury will leave the Rockets extremely short handed for the immediate future. Capela is averaging 17.6 ppg. and tearing down 12.6 rebounds per game while shooting 63% from the field. Capela’s 34 minutes a night will tough to cover, most likely by veteran Nene and a committee on untested reserves.
