Houston's McHale returns
Houston coach Kevin McHale rejoined the Rockets on Saturday after almost a month away from the team to be with his family and daughter Alexandra "Sasha" McHale, 23, who died Nov. 24 of complications from the autoimmune disease lupus.
"It's been a while," said McHale, who went on leave Nov. 10. "Hopefully it's the right time. I don't know there ever is a right time. I don't know if there is a playbook about this, but I'm excited to be back."
Houston went 7-6 under interim coach Kelvin Sampson.
