Bobcats without Kwame Brown against Bucks
The Charlotte Bobcats will be without starting center Kwame
Brown against Andrew Bogut and the Milwaukee Bucks.
Coach Paul Silas says Brown left the team after shootaround
Monday to go to Georgia to be with his sick daughter. With backup
center Joel Przybilla also still out with a sore knee, Tyrus Thomas
will start and tangle with Bogut in his return after missing two
games with bruised ribs.
The Bobcats are expected to have forward Stephen Jackson despite
him missing shootaround with an illness. Backup point guard Shaun
Livingston is also slowed by a twisted ankle.
The Bobcats entered the night trailing eighth-place Indiana by
one game for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
