Luis Scola never made it to his pregame warmup. He was headed that direction and went through a few exercises to get his sore left knee ready for the test. Before he could take the first shot in his pregame routine, he headed to the locker room knowing he could not play, ending his streak of 311 consecutive games played to start his NBA career.

"It was hurting every move I made," Scola said. "I wasn't going to be able top play any decent basketball. Even if I was going to trying knowing the game was key, I wasn't going to be able to play any basketball. It's just hurting too much."

Scola is considered day-to-day with a strained left knee. He had played the past four games with as strained right knee suffered in a fall in New Orleans. The Rockets are off until playing the Spurs on Saturday.
