    DENVER — Frustrated for weeks about his diminished role, Rockets guard Aaron Brooks will have no role at all tonight against the Denver Nuggets.

    The Rockets suspended Brooks for one game for leaving the court in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s win over the Memphis Grizzlies at Toyota Center, general manager Daryl Morey said.

    Morey said he would have no additional comment.

    Brooks did not travel with the Rockets to Denver on Sunday. Rookie guard Ish Smith will be recalled from the NBA Development League in time to join the team in Denver.

    Brooks was taken out of Saturday’s game with 6:45 left in the fourth quarter, but instead of heading to the bench, he went to the locker room. Brooks has said he had been frustrated with his role coming off the bench and with his play but had gotten over it. He was not available for comment Sunday.

    The tension among Rockets players has seemed to become an increasing issue in recent weeks, with coach Rick Adelman working to squeeze Brooks into the backcourt rotation, often closing games with Brooks and Kyle Lowry playing together. That has limited the minutes of several players, most notably Courtney Lee off the bench and Kevin Martin late in games.

    “We have a lot of people at the ones, twos and threes and not enough minutes for everybody,” said Adelman, who at times has seemed frustrated himself with the juggling act. “I’ve been just trying to go with the feel of the game and see how we can win that particular game.”

    Word is Houston may be looking to move Brooks by the trade deadline. I really don't think we'd have any interest, but it's good to know at least some decent talent may become available within the next 2.5 weeks.

    Pretty interesting. I've never heard a peep out of Brooks before.

    I knew he wasn't starter material, and not just because of his height. This proves my point that it takes a selfless point guard to lead a team.

    It's a good thing that he didn't ball tap someone or make contact with a ref.

    Only one game suspension for that? You don't walk out on your team like. My opinion he should be suspended at least 3 games for that.

    Rich man's JJ Barea except with obvious attitude issues (unless he knows something damning about Adelman that we don't).
