by February 24, 2010

A hip-pointer will sideline the Rockets’ swingman for the remainder of the week: “Rockets guard Trevor Ariza will be out for the remainder of the week, missing games against the Magic, Spurs and Jazz, with a severe left hip pointer. He underwent an MRI on Monday and will be re-evaluated next week. Guard Kevin Martin will move into the starting lineup, coach Rick Adelman said. Ariza has been battling the injury since Feb. 6 and missed the Rockets’ next game against Miami. He left Saturday’s game after re-aggravating the injury but returned and played Sunday in New Orleans.”
