Houston Rockets guard Gerald Green could be sidelined for several months with a broken left foot, The Athletic reported Sunday.

The 33-year-old NBA journeyman will have further tests this week, per the report.

Green limped off the court during Thursday's preseason game in Tokyo against the Toronto Raptors.

Green appeared in 73 games off the Houston bench in 2018-19, averaging 9.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 20.2 minutes. He was third on the team with 156 3-pointers.

Green is entering his third season with the Rockets and his 13th in the NBA, a professional career that has included time with eight NBA franchises plus stints in Russia and China.

The Rockets open the 2019-20 regular season at home on Oct. 24 against the Milwaukee Bucks.
