Upon returning to Houston late last night, Landry was picking up some fast food when his car was side-swiped. As he got out to investigate the damage, shots fired from a car driving by, the second of which hit his calf.

The Houston Chronicle has the report:

Houston Rockets forward Carl Landry suffered a gunshot wound to his lower leg early this morning in a possible drive-by shooting or failed robbery near downtown, police said.

Landry, 25, was released after treatment at Memorial Hermann Hospital. A team spokesman said he suffered a flesh wound and is expected to be out of the lineup for one to two weeks.

The important news is that Landy’s OK–he was treated for a flesh wound and released from the hospital. But, all things considered, Landry got lucky. The gunshot was not life-threatening and it’s not even season-ending.
