Investigators are searching for two suspects in connection with the incident.

Team officials said Landry had just returned from New Orleans when he went out to get some food around 3:30 a.m.

Police said he was driving along Leeland near downtown when two suspects, who were heading the opposite direction in a grey Honda Civic, sideswiped his SUV.

Both Landry and the men in the Civic turned around after the wreck, and police said the Civic rammed Landry’s SUV again.

At that point, police said Landry got out of his SUV, and the suspects fired two shots.

One of those bullets grazed Landry’s left calf.

Police said Landry turned around and ran, and the suspects also fled on foot, abandoning their vehicle.

Landry was treated at Memorial Hermann for a flesh wound in his left calf and a dislocated finger on his left hand. He has since been released.

It was unclear how many games Landry might miss as a result of the injury, but team officials said they expect him to make a full recovery.

“We are very thankful and relieved that Carl’s injuries are relatively minor, and that he’s doing well,” Rockets GM Daryl Morey said Tuesday in a statement.
