Carl LandryThe Rockets made the short flight from New Orleans to Houston following a Monday night win over the Hornets. After getting home, forward Carl Landry apparently went back out to pick up some fast food. According to the Houston Chronicle, attackers side-swiped Landry's car, then followed by firing two shots into the vehicle. One hit Landry.

The team has confirmed Landry suffered a flesh wound, and he's expected to miss 1-2 weeks of action. No word if this was a random attack; NBA players have recently been specifically targeted and victims of random violence.

So far this season, Landry, a second-year forward out of Purdue, is averaging 9.3 points and 5.0 rebounds per game over 64 games.
