He makes it sound like he would be willing to play and travel as long as the Rockets use an independent doctor.
This. He just wants to be able to see who he chooses and have them cover it still. There were a few other minor things, that I can't remember, but he's said the travel plan was set up way before the season.
As for the question, I would pause and think, but I would say no. Seems way too likely that we might inadvertently offend him and then he's in hiding again, cue Sweet Brown.
