In the middle of the fourth quarter of Houston's win over Memphis on Saturday night, Rockets coach Rick Adelman took backup guard Aaron Brooks out of the game.

Instead of taking a seat on the bench, Brooks took the substitution personally and walked straight to the locker room without being injured.

On Sunday, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey told the Houston Chronicle that Brooks has been suspended for Monday's game against the Denver Nuggets.

"I don't know. I don't know. You'd have to ask him," Adelman said when asked if he knew where Brooks had gone.
