Coach Mike D'Antoni says: ''Everybody came to the same conclusion. There's no way.'' The nine-time All-Star got hurt late in the fourth quarter of Game 5 and missed the Rockets' 115-86 loss on Saturday.
The Rockets are trying to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1995 against a Golden State team that hopes to reach the finals for the fourth straight season.
D'Antoni says they made the decision because: ''He couldn't explode. He couldn't push off of it.''
