Rockets training camp begins today, and Tracy McGrady was asked Monday how and where he plans to spend the next few weeks after general manager Daryl Morey announced the star guard would be held out of action while continuing rehabilitation until late November.
â€œI’ll stay at home since they won’t let me practice, sit on my couch and watch TV,â€ he said with a straight face before grinning. â€œNah, I’ll be here working. I’m back.â€
McGrady said he feels better, seven months removed from microfracture surgery on his left knee, than he did at any point during the 2008-09 season, when he was limited to 35 games and averaged 15.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and five assists.
