Houston Rockets rookie big man Usman Garuba will undergo left wrist surgery and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks of action, as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. 

The Spanish big man suffered the injury while he was on assignment to G League-affiliated team Rio Grande Valley Vipers. 

So far, Garuba has played 15 games for the Houston Rockets, averaging 1.3 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.
