The Bobcats and Bucks will both be without their starting forwards for Monday night's regular season opener.
For the Bobcats, Tyrus Thomas is out with a left ankle sprain.
Bobcats coach Paul Silas says D.J. White will start in his place, but that rookie Bismack Biyombo will see significant playing time.
Silas says of Thomas, ''he's still limping around a bit.''
For the Bucks, Luc Mbah a Moute, who was expected to start, is out with tendinitis in his right knee. He'll be replaced in the starting lineup by Ersan Illyasova. Tobias Harris is also out with muscle soreness related to dehydration.
