Rockets’ Zhou Qi carted off (knee sprain)

Rockets forward Zhou Qi exited Tuesday’s preseason game with a knee sprain suffered during awkward scramble for a loose ball.

Zhou, a second-round pick of the 2016 NBA Draft, got his leg pinned under a Shanghai Sharks player. The Chinese big man stayed on the floor for several minutes until he was carried off on a wheelchair for further assessment. Zhou played just four minutes before leaving late in the first quarter.
