Remember Omer Asik? He could return to Rockets in 7-10 days


Unable to find a trade to their liking, the Houston Rockets are prepared to welcome center Omer Asik back to the team.

Asik, who has not played a game in two months, could be cleared to practice within the next seven-to-10 days, according to the Houston Chronicle. 

The backcup center started rehab work last week, and is typically a set that a player is

on the path to return, the Chronicle noted.

“Everything is not a definite,” Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. “We’re ‘hoping for’ is what I’m getting.”
