Best thing about his 22 points was that he only had 1 3 point FG, that's the EC we need. Great to see.

Re: RUMORS: Hassan Out Multiple Weeks with Knee Injury?

If it's a bone bruise, those are very painful, but don't last more than a week. May make sense to come off the bench if needed and rest it for Houston. A week recovery is plenty for that injury. The first 3-4 days makes you feel like you have a broken bone.
