PHILADELPHIA -- Forward Chris Webber sat out the Philadelphia 76ers' game against the Washington Wizards on Monday night with a lower back strain.

Point guard Kevin Ollie also didn't play for the Sixers because of a right quadriceps strain. John Salmons took his spot in the lineup.

Webber, averaging 20.3 points and 9.9 rebounds, has missed two straight games. Steven Hunter started in his place.

For the Wizards, guard Caron Butler missed his third straight game because of a sprained right thumb, but center Etan Thomas returned after missing one game with lower back pain.
