Rockets’ Isaiah Hartenstein out 2-3 weeks with right ankle sprain

Houston Rockets center Isaiah Hartenstein will miss the remainder of Summer League with a right ankle sprain. He injured the ankle while shooting a three-pointer during the Rockets 94-92 victory over the Sacramento Kings:

Rockets assistant coach Matt Brase lamented the loss of the talented center, who was working hard to gain a spot on the NBA roster:

“It’s a loss of (opportunity to) showcase himself to our organization, what he has. But we know Isaiah. He had a phenomenal year in the G League this year, being the Finals MVP. We’ve seen him do a lot of really good things. We wish we could get him to stay healthy and play all the games out here in Summer League. But we got to get him healthy and make sure he’s ready when we’re starting back up in September.”

However, Hartenstein impressed in the G League. His numbers were much better, averaging 11.5 points and nine rebounds a game in ten starts.
Hopefully, the talented young man can get better soon so he can have another shot at cracking the Rockets’ rotation.
