Default To Rocket fans: Where is Steve Francis?

Is he injured? did he get traded? retired?

He's an important part to the team but apparently he is missing.

I been reading that Rick Adelman doesn't have him in the rotation and for what reason I don't know why? Wht sign him when your not going to play him?

This is shocking. Steve Francis was so excited to play back in Houston, now he ain't playing? I seen him play this preseason and I was convinced Stevie Franchise was back.

I dont know, i've been wondering also, he hasent played all this season. I think Adleman wants him to see our offense and he'll be a backup for like our other guards. I think he'll start playing later in the season, its too early in the season right now.

The thing i don't get is how the hell is a guy supposed to learn the offense and mesh with the team, not to mention stay in shape, if you don't let him in the actual games? I agree Adleman is being an ass about this

Francis' stats for the year....

10 games played
5.5 PPG
2.3 RPG
3.0 APG

http://www.nba.com/playerfile/steve_francis/index.html

He's no factor in or offense or team whatsoever. I was very suprised to have those "damaged goods" back on the team. He's past his prime and needs to play for the Clips w/ his boy Cuttino.

He's injured! http://www.sportsline.com/nba/players/playerpage/139064
Quote:
Houston Rockets guard Steve Francis will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn quadriceps tendon in his right knee, but expects to play again next season. The 6-foot-3 Francis hasn't played since Dec. 15. He's appeared in only 10 games this season with three starts, averaging 5.5 points and 3.0 assists. The team said Francis will have surgery Feb. 25. "It's definitely tough and disheartening," Francis said Thursday, 90 minutes before the Rockets played Cleveland. "Despite the way the season started, I thought I was making progress. But after rehabbing for a while, it still didn't respond in the manner I wanted it to."

Injury Report
Knee - Out for the season
