There is still no definitive timetable for when he will coach in a game again, but Tuesday, according to ESPNNewYork.com, Steve Lavin showed up at St. John's practice.

The second-year Red Storm coach announced at the end of last season that he had prostate cancer. A little more than a month ago, Lavin had successful surgery to remove the cancer.

From ESPNNewYork.com's Kieran Darcy:
It is still undecided whether Lavin will coach the team's next game, Wednesday night versus Lehigh. Lavin's surgery was deemed "a success" by the coach in a statement released by the school, and the coach has been consulting with his doctor daily about when to return to the team. He receives a DVD of every practice at his Manhattan apartment and is putting together the team's daily practice plans based on watching them.

Lavin is slowly making his way back to the young team, a team that defeated William & Mary on college basketball's opening night Monday.

Steve take as much time as you need to recover. Your health and well being are far more important than the gameof basketball.

This is proof that your assistant coaches are fully capable of holding down the fort in your absence while you regain your strength.
