Kevin McHale's mother dies in Hibbing at age 86
Kevin McHale's mother, Josephine, died Tuesday night in Hibbing and there is no word when the Houston Rockets head coach will return to the NBA team.
McHale missed a second straight day of practice Wednesday. The Rockets begin a West Coast road trip tonight at Portland, and continue at Golden State on Friday and Sacramento on Sunday.
Assistant coach Kelvin Sampson has taken over coaching duties in McHale's absence.
