HOUSTON (AP) - The daughter of Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale has died at 23.

Alexandra ``Sasha'' McHale died Saturday, and the team disclosed no other details Sunday.

Kevin McHale has been on leave since Nov. 10 to deal with what the team called a personal family matter. During his absence, Kelvin Sampson has been the interim coach. There is no timetable for Kevin McHale's return.

Team owner Leslie Alexander said in a statement that he extends his ``deepest condolences'' over the loss of the McHales' ``beautiful daughter.'' He called Kevin and wife Lynn ``loving and dedicated parents who will need our continued support throughout this very difficult time.'' He said the ``entire organization is mourning.''

Some of the Rockets expressed their support for McHale.

James Harden tweeted: ``Praying for coach McHale and his family.'' Chandler Parsons added on Twitter: ``R.I.P. Sasha.''

McHale spent several years with the Minnesota Timberwolves as a coach and executive before joining the Rockets following two seasons as a television analyst.

``While Kevin was with our organization, we all watched Sasha grow up and become an outstanding young woman,'' Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said in a statement. ``She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.''
