One of the unsung heroes during the Houston Rockets playoff run a season ago will begin his 2013 training camp with a slight hiccup. Veteran swingman Francisco Garcia will sit out a couple of practices this week as he has re-aggravated a groin injury that he suffered during the FIBA Tournament of Americas, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen.

Garcia came into camp expecting to fight for playing time in the pre-season against fellow wing reserves Ronnie BrewerReggie Williams, and Robert Covington. Now, it looks like he’ll have get healthy first before competing for his spot.

 

Garcia re-signed with the Rockets this off-season after the team initially declined his player option for this season. The former Louisville standout averaged 10.7 points and shot over 46 percent from the 3-point line in last year’s playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He also averaged 10.7 points while playing for the Dominican Republic in the tournament earlier this month, while shooting 50 percent from the field.
