Houston (CBS Houston)– Houston Rockets head coach Kevin McHale missed Tuesday’s practice due to personal reasons.
Assistant coach Kelvin Sampson took his place in McHale’s absence and said that McHale is ‘day-to-day’ and hopefully he’ll be back for Wednesday’s practice.
After suffering a knee contusion and missing the last couple of weeks, Jeremy Lin did return to Tuesday’s practice and said having Samson in for McHale’s absence is ‘pretty much the same’ as far as structure.
“We’re working on the same stuff,” McHale said. “It’s not like when he runs practice he’s the only one talking anyways. All the coaches take turns and have different drills that they one.”
