Marcus Camby, C, Nuggets (knee)
Eddy Curry, C, Knicks (flu)
Jeff Green, SF, Sonics (ankle)
Chris Kaman, C, Clippers (flu)
Corey Maggette, SG/SF, Clippers (flu)
Jerry Stackhouse, SG/SF, Mavericks (hamstring)
Wally Szczerbiak, SG/SF, Sonics (ankle)
Tim Thomas averaged more than 39 minutes in his past five games. He is inconsistent, but as long as Maggette is out, the playing time will be there, and he has a good matchup, considering the Knicks are dead last in defensive efficiency. Mehmet Okur is coming off his best month in a disappointing season and really picked it up the past two games, averaging 21 points and 12 rebounds. Andres Nocioni has not shot better than 42.1 percent in eight straight games now, so make sure the streaky shooter is benched.
