Houston Rocket Donatas Motiejunas will return "sometime in December" according to an interview with J.B. Bickerstaff on Wednesday morning."

J.B. Bickerstaff on Wednesday morning. Sports radio 790:

He's working extremely hard. He's in the gym three different times a day. He's in the weight room for treatment.

The expectations are that he will be back sometime in December [inaudible]. Not quite sure about that.

Bickerstaff made the comment just minutes before becoming the head coach of the Houston Rockets. The new head coach does a weekly interview with 790 sports and this week's occurred right before the Rockets made the surprise announcement.

There's a small amount of fun listening to a man who knows he's going to make headlines in mere minutes speak from his new position of power with no one knowing.

Listen to hear Bickerstaff typify the players only meeting while making no mention of Kevin McHale.

The interview begins at minute 107:30
