UPDATE: Statement from Rockets owner Les Alexander:

Quote:
I extend my deepest condolences to Kevin and Lynn for the loss of their beautiful daughter, Sasha, on Saturday afternoon. Kevin and Lynn are loving and dedicated parents who will need our continued support throughout this very difficult time. Our entire organization is mourning the McHale family’s loss and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers.



UPDATE: Sadly, this has been confirmed.

Quote:
My deepest sympathies and heartfelt prayers go out to Kevin McHale and his family on the passing of daugher Sasha on Saturday.

McHale, the longtime Wolves executive and head coach, has been on leave from his job as Houston's coach to be with Sasha as she battled the auto-immune disease lupus.

Please remember Kevin and his family in your thoughts and prayers.



I didn't wanna start a thread on this until it was 100% confirmed, but it sounds like McHale's daughter passed away today...

Just awful if true. I'll hold out hope till I hear from the Rockets for Kevin's sake.

Regardless, everyone should say a prayer (or send some good thoughts) Kevin's way as I will most certainly do.

What could possibly be worse than losing a child? My deepest sympathy for Coach McHale and his family. Just terrible news.

Terrible news, I really feel for the McHale family. My mother always tells me that her biggest fear is having to bury one of her children (me or my sister). 22 is way too young to go, R.I.P.

If that really is her twitter, her last tweet was

@SashaMcHale Let's go rockets!!! #rednation #clutchcity
