Carl Landry, power forward for the Houston Rockets, suffered a gunshot wound to his lower leg early Tuesday morning in a possible drive-by shooting or failed robbery near downtown, police said.

Landry was released after treatment at Memorial Hermann Hospital. A team spokesman said he suffered a flesh wound and is expected to be out of the lineup for one to two weeks.

The incident happened in the 3100 block of Leeland, a short distance southeast of downtown, about 4:20 a.m., Houston police said in a preliminary report.

The team's charter flight landed at Hobby Airport shortly after midnight following their win on Monday in New Orleans, according to a team spokesman.

According to police, Landry was driving when another vehicle bumped his car. He got out to inspect the damage and two shots were fired from the other vehicle as it slowly passed him, team officials said.

The second shot struck Landry.

Lucky that it only hit his leg. Rockets can't get a break.

Luckily it wasn't too serious and he will only miss up 2 weeks.

Wow that sucks so much. Luckily he's not in critical condition or anything. Hope they catch the attackers.
