2. Why was Brown at a club when he has an injured knee?

Another question is why was Brown at a club in the first place? After all, he’s been out because of a knee injury that he suffered on the court.

Obviously it’s outside of his rehab plan for him to be out in a club, because that certainly won’t help him return to the court any sooner. Surely Houston Rockets coach Stephen Silas didn’t bring Brown on the trip to Florida for him to venture off and go to the strip club.

Silas has previously spoken about the importance of injured players being with/around the team when Christian Wood was injured.

“There’s times where if you’re going to be out for an extended period of time, if you’re not going to be around the team, it’s almost a lonely spot. You’re just doing your treatment.

You’re not seeing your teammates. Your teammates are not seeing you. We really want to make sure he’s a part of everything we do. To the extent that it’s possible, him being around the team is going to be good for him and good for us.”

This was likely the logic and rationale for Brown to still be travelling with the team in spite of his injury, as the same statement is applicable to Brown. Also, if Brown hasn’t been healthy enough to play for the Rockets, it’s hard to understand why he was out at the club in the first place.
