Artest misses second straight game with sore wrist

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana forward Ron Artest was inactive for
the Pacers' game against Memphis on Saturday night, the second
straight game he has missed because of a sore right wrist.

The Pacers beat the Grizzlies 80-66.

Artest, who leads the NBA in steals and is the Pacers'
second-leading scorer at 19.4 points a game, was hurt in a
Thanksgiving night victory over Cleveland.

Guard Jamaal Tinsley also was inactive for the fifth straight
game because of a strained left quadriceps.
