The incident occurred less than five minutes into Tuesday’s preseason contest between the Rockets and Pacers.
Brooks hit Theis as he attempted to maneuver around the latter’s screen. The ex-Memphis Grizzlies player was assessed a flagrant-2 foul and tossed from the game.

Brooks was suspended one game last season for a similar incident involving Cleveland Cavaliers star Donovan Mitchell.
Houston signed Brooks to a four-year, $80-million contract over the summer. He’s projected to be the club’s starting small forward.
