Nowitzki, Landry injured in collision
Houston’s Carl Landry was taken to a hospital after breaking teeth
in a collision with Dirk Nowitzki during the second quarter of
Friday night’s game between the Rockets and Mavericks.
Nowitzki drove into the lane and missed a short jumper with
9:28 left in the second quarter. He was fouled by Landry, who was
hit in the mouth on Nowitzki’s follow-through.
Before going to the locker room for X-rays and three stitches
to close a cut on his right elbow, Nowitzki, a right-hander, shot
two free throws left-handed, converting one.
Nowitzki was still in the locker room at the start of the
third quarter and did not return.
