Kevin McHale is back with the Rockets for the game against the Mavericks.
McHale will be back on the bench coaching the Rockets too. McHale held his normal 5:45 p.m. press conference on Saturday too. He said it felt "good to be back."
McHale has been on a leave of absence since Nov. 10. His daughter, Sasha, died on Nov. 24 at the age of 23. The entire team attended the funeral of Sasha McHale in Minnesota in late November.
In the interim, Kelvin Sampson has coached the Rockets to a 7-6 record in McHale's absence.
