McGrady set to return on November 18th

From SB Nation's Andrew Sharp:

According to reports, Tracy McGrady will be back in action for the Houston Rockets in little more than a week. November 18th, vs. the Timberwolves, to be exact. He shared his thoughts in an e-mail to Yahoo! Sports:

"Excited to get back and compete at a high level again. For a full year I had to play on one leg against the best and I couldn't compete with anybody the way I was feeling."

"It's gonna be a relief to get out there and play knowing what I went [through] last season and this summer."

We'd last heard that Tracy was out until the end of November.  We'll see if the team clears him to play - it's my understanding that they haven't yet.

If you'd told me a month ago that Tracy would be back this early, I'd be ecstatic.  But given how well this current team has played, I'm a little hesitant to throw a wrench in it.  Then again, this wrench sounds much more polished than it has been in past years.  Ah, forget it; Tracy's return can only be a good thing.
