Houston Rockets forward Luc Mbah a Moute is likely to miss the first round of the Western Conference playoffs with a dislocated right shoulder, a league source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Mbah a Moute underwent an MRI on Wednesday morning in Houston, and a precise timetable for his return is unclear, the source said.
Mbah a Moute suffered the injury in the second quarter Tuesday night and didn't return to the Rockets' 105-95 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
He suffered the injury while dunking in the second quarter. He held his shoulder in pain and immediately left the game with 6:46 remaining in the first half.
