Day 4 of Houston Rockets training camp brought new post practice interviews from head coach Kevin McHale as well as Ty Lawson, K.J. McDaniels and Corey Brewer.

More from Rockets News

Kevin McHale:

  • Perhaps the most interesting news of the day was former Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was on site and expected back Saturday.
  • Terrence Jones did not practice again
  • McHale notes they’ll look at playing Trevor Ariza more at the power forward, but given the injuries to Jones and Motiejunas it will give Sam Dekker and Montrezl Harrell a shot at minutes as well.
  • Again McHale noted until DeMo starts running they won’t have an idea of when he is returning.
