Christian Wood Looking at Lengthy Absence

One of the top candidates for NBA Most Improved Player, Christian Wood, is set to go for an MRI on his injured right ankle. Wood rolled his right ankle in Thursday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies - the same ankle that caused him to miss three games a little over one week ago. Check out the injury below.

Wood was enjoying a breakout season in the NBA, averaging 22.0 ppg on 55.8 FG%, 10.2 rpg & 1.5 bpg. There has even been some All-Star chatter for the journeyman big man who has found a home in Houston.
