He's an important part to the team but apparently he is missing.
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
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."
Knee - Out for the season
