Rockets missing TEETH and Players

During the summer of 2009 the Houston Rockets took over operations of the NBA D-league Rio Grande Valley Vipers. This allows the Rockets to develop players for the NBA and also keep their own players on reserve when needed. Well this is the best time for the Rockets to put their resources into use. Rockets forward Carl Landry is day-to-day after colliding with Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki, resulting in damage to five of his teeth. Small forward Chase Budinger suffered a right ankle sprain Saturday. He will be re-evaluated today. If Houston needs anyone extra in the meantime Vipers forward Mike Harris will probably be the next up.
Harris is third in scoring in NBADL averaging 26.2 points per game. Harris also played for the Rockets in 2008 during their 22 game winning streak. If the Rockets decide to play guard Jermaine Taylor then they might recall forward/center Joey Dorsey to sit on the bench. If Houston goes that route then they can recall Dorsey tomorrow after the Vipers vs Reno game and send him back down before Saturdays game if Budinger or Landry returns.
