Reports: Kevin McHale to coach Rockets tonight

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Kevin McHale is reportedly rejoining the Rockets after a month-long leave of absence.

According to Jonathan Feigen and Mark Berman, Kevin McHale will rejoin the Rockets for their contest against the Dallas Mavericks, two weeks following the death of his daughter, Sasha.

Here are the two reports:

With the horrible tragedy that McHale and his family had to go through, nobody would have faulted him for staying away as long as he needed. Still, it has to be a great morale boost to the squad to get their coach back. Kelvin Sampson has done an excellent job holding the fort down, but there is no doubt that McHale's experience is sorely needed on this young team.

As this story continues to develop, we'll keep you updated.
