Now for some very good news for a team sorely in need of it.
Donatas Motiejunas met with the surgeon on Tuesday and passed the exam, getting clearance to return to practice with the Rockets this week.

Motiejunas suffered a herniated disk late last season and underwent lumbar microdiscectomy surgery in April.
The Rockets desperately need Motiejunas, who was a key player for them last season when they lost Dwight Howard for 41 games. The Rockets have bigger problems than just one missing guy, but given Houston’s troubles this season inside at both the four and five (when Dwight is out), D-Mo could be a very key addition.
