Houston Rockets guard Tracy McGrady says he'll miss three weeks to rehabilitate his sore left knee. McGrady has missed Houston's last three games after starting the first 15. He had arthroscopic surgery in early May, but acknowledged Tuesday that the knee was still not healed.

"Obviously, I came back a little bit too early," said McGrady, Houston's second-leading scorer, averaging 15.6 points per game. "I'm just not ready."

McGrady visited with renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews on Monday. The team said Andrews confirmed the initial medical assessment of by team physician Tom Clanton that McGrady is suffering from general soreness in the knee.
