Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones missed nearly three months earlier in the season with a nerve injury in his leg, and now Jones is going to miss more time with another rather bizarre ailment:
Terrence Jones injury is Pneumothorax-collapsed lung. He is out and reevaluated next week.

Jones went to the hospital on Thursday night after being struck in the ribs in the first quarter of the Rockets’ 118-108 win over the Denver Nuggets.
Jones has played really well when he has been healthy this season, averaging 12.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. Jones’s play has been especially key of late with Dwight Howard still on the shelf. Howard is slated to return in another week or two, so Houston will be a bit thin in the frontcourt until then.
