HOUSTON (AP) - Houston coach Kevin McHale has rejoined the Rockets after almost a month away from the team, and two weeks after the death of his daughter.
McHale took a leave of absence on Nov. 10 to be with his family as his daughter's health worsened. Twenty-three-year-old Alexandra ``Sasha'' McHale died Nov. 24 of complications from Lupus.
McHale will coach the Rockets on Saturday night against the Mavericks.
Houston went 7-6 under interim coach Kelvin Sampson while McHale was out.
