Houston Rockets forward Luc Mbah a Moute is likely to miss the first round of the Western Conference playoffs with a dislocated right shoulder, a league source told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Mbah a Moute underwent an MRI on Wednesday morning in Houston and a precise timetable for his return is unclear, the source said. Houston (65-16) will be the top seed in the West playoffs.

Mbah a Moute suffered the injury in the second quarter Tuesday night and didn’t return to the Rockets’ 105-99 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
