Rockets' Clint Capela: Ruled out Monday

Capela has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Grizzlies due to a right thumb injury, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, Capela injured his finger going for a lob during Sunday's loss to the Magic. While the big man downplayed the severity of the issue and finished the contest with 17 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 boards and three assists in 36 minutes, the injury is apparently bothersome enough to keep him sidelined for at least one game. More specifics regarding the injury should clear up once he's further evaluated Monday. In the meantime, look for Nene Hilario and Marquese Chriss to see increased roles with Capela sidelined.
