Rockets forward Nene pulled his left groin after just one minute in Sunday’s 125-101 victory over the Spurs, with no indication when he’ll return to action.
Nene scored four points in his limited action before leaving the game, after which he reportedly went directly to have an MRI.
“We’ll have a better handle on it (after the MRI), but he pulled his groin pretty good,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said after the game, the result of which knotted the series at 2-2. “We’ll see. I don’t have any more than that.”
Pelicans’ Alvin Gentry Blasts Officiating After Loss to Rockets
For the second consecutive game, the coach opposing the Houston Rockets finished the night with an epic rant against the officials. This time, it was New Orleans’ Alvin Gentry, who fired off against the referees following the Pelicans’ 107-101 home defeat.
“The thing that bothers me more than anything, and I really don’t care, we try to play the right way, and we play our asses off,” Gentry said. “All we want is an equal opportunity to win the game. Not have a situation where we are guessing on the biggest play of the game, where they call a 3-point foul from the corner.
