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.

Josephine McHale was 86 and is survived by four children, 12 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Funeral services are Friday at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Hibbing.

McHale's daughter, Sasha, a Minnesota Duluth student, died a little over a year ago from complications from lupus.
