Houston Rockets F Donatas Motiejunas will miss the remainder of the NBA season due to a back injury. Motiejunas had missed the last 7 games but the rest did not help the injury. At this point in time it has not been determined if surgery or more rest would be needed to alleviate the injury.
“He was someone we definitely went to,” Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. “He was able to get down in the low blocks. A lot of nights our offense slowed down, we were able to play through D-Mo, especially late. Got us baskets. Put pressure on the defense. We’re going to miss him.
“He put a lot of hard work in. It’s too bad. I feel bad for him. He is one of those guys that never misses a day. On off days, he’s in shooting. He really works hard. I know he’ll miss playing. The kid loves to play basketball.”
