Hobbled Bobcats without May against Clippers
May told team officials and trainers that he would not be able to play after the team's pregame shootaround, coach Bernie Bickerstaff said.
It's the latest in a string of injuries to hit the Bobcats, who were without four starters Friday -- May, forward Emeka Okafor, who has missed 10 games with a strained calf; center Primoz Brezec (sprained left ankle); and guard Brevin Knight, out for the second game with a strained groin.
May, who averages 11.9 points and 6.7 rebounds, underwent two operations on his right knee and played just 23 games during his rookie season in 2005-06, and sat out 20 games this season before returning to the Bobcats' lineup on March 10 against Memphis.
