MINNEAPOLIS -- Things aren't getting any easier for Paul Silas and the Charlotte Bobcats.

Silas was missing his two leading scorers against Minnesota on Wednesday night. Stephen Jackson missed the game with a hyperextended left knee and Gerald Wallace has a sprained left ankle.

Center Nazr Mohammed also missed the game with a bruised right knee and forward Tyrus Thomas played with tendinitis in his right knee.

Wallace has missed seven straight games with his injury. Jackson was hurt in the loss to Miami on Monday night. He was averaging 25 points per game over the previous five and 31.5 on 57 percent shooting in his previous four against the Timberwolves.
