MINNEAPOLIS -- Los Angeles center Chris Kaman was
deactivated for the Clippers' game against Minnesota on Saturday
night because of a sprained left ankle.
Kaman, who is averaging 8.2 points and 7.0 rebounds, was injured
in practice on Friday. A team spokeswoman said he is listed as
day-to-day. The Clippers play at Denver on Sunday.
Aaron Williams started in place of Kaman, who missed all but two
games in the preseason with a hamstring injury.
Kaman's absence means the Clippers are without their
second-leading rebounder, bad news for a team that has struggled on
the boards recently. They have been outrebounded in two straight
games, despite Kaman grabbing a combined 24 boards in losses to
Seattle and the Lakers.
