Tracy McGrady Likely out for Two More Weeks

The uncertainty is over.

The season, the Rockets said, is not, and it’s time to get on with it.

With Tracy McGrady on Monday going out for at least two weeks and Ron Artest out for at least Tuesday night’s game against the Lakers, the Rockets were ready to trade star power for continuity.
Weeks of guess work about who would play each night will be ended, as McGrady sits out to go through the off-season conditioning routine he could not after his May 6 surgery while Artest seeks a second opinion on "a stress reaction" in his right ankle.
