MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -Houston forward Ron Artest was held out of Monday night's game against the Memphis Grizzlies because of a sore right ankle, the latest Rockets player to be sidelined with an injury.
Artest, in his 10th year out of St. John's, is the Rockets' second-leading scorer at 15.7 points a game. He scored 28 points in 35-plus minutes against Golden State on Friday night. Artest had started all 20 games for the Rockets this season before sitting out Monday.
Artest joins a growing list of Houston players beset by injuries. Tracy McGrady missed his sixth straight game with left knee soreness, while guard Brent Barry is out with a small tear in the Plantar muscle on his right leg. Rookie Joey Dorsey also was expected to miss the game with a right foot injury.
