Steve Francis has become a forgotten man throughout much of the NBA, but the folks in Houston hope he can still return to form.
"I'm not going to sit here and say I'm 100% because I'm not," said Francis. "I still have a ways to go. It's going to be a tough process, but I'm willing to sacrifice. Even if I don't start the season, I know within the next three or four weeks I'll be 100%. I don't want to go out there if I'm not 100% and possibly re-injure myself."
