Rockets to honor coach McHale's daughter
NOV 27, 2012 9:17a ET
"I extend my deepest condolences to Kevin and Lynn for the loss of their beautiful daughter, Sasha, on Saturday afternoon," Rockets owner Leslie Alexander said. "Kevin and Lynn are loving and dedicated parents who will need our continued support throughout this very difficult time. Our entire organization is mourning the McHale family's loss and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers."
McHale has been on a leave of absence since Nov. 10 and there is no timetable for his return. Assistant coach Kelvin Sampson is coaching the team in the interim. The Rockets are 4-4 under Sampson and 6-7 overall.
Houston also has planned a moment of silence before Tuesday's game against Toronto in Toyota Center.
