Coach McHale took a leave of absence from the team on Nov. 10, in order to be with his hospitalized daughter, who tragically passsed away on Nov. 24. She was only 23 years old.
The Houston Rockets team showed their support for the McHale family by attending his daughter’s funeral, and honored her by wearing jersey patches during games.
It seems like Kevin McHale is now looking to rejoin the Rockets and could do so as soon as tonight.
