Houston Rockets guard Gerald Green is believed to have broken his left foot and could be sidelined for a few months, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Green will seek more options on his foot this week, reports Charania. There's no definite timetable for his return.

He was initially diagnosed with a sprained left foot and didn't practice Sunday.

Green posted five points and four boards in Houston's most recent preseason game in Japan against the Toronto Raptors.

The 33-year-old was a key reserve for the Rockets last season, averaging 9.2 points and shooting 35.4% from beyond the arc. Green's prolonged absence is a big blow to a Houston squad already lacking options on the wing.

Journeyman guard Ben McLemore is one of the candidates to fill in for Green. The former seventh overall pick shot 41.5% from distance during a brief 19-game stint with the Sacramento Kings last season.

Danuel House is another alternative for the Rockets after connecting at a 41.6% clip on 4.6 triples attempted per game during the previous campaign.
