Bobcats coach Paul Silas says Boris Diaw will be inactive for Wednesday night's game against Utah.
That news comes after Silas refused to play Diaw against Orlando Tuesday night, snapping the veteran's string of 384 consecutive games played.
Silas says he ''doesn't know'' if Diaw will play again this season.
Silas has grown increasingly frustrated by Diaw passing up makeable shots, saying ''I like a player who is really committed to not only the team but to himself'' and ''had he played all out - the way he should have played - it would have been a much, much better club.''
Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins confirmed Tuesday night Diaw's agent recently approached him about a buyout or a trade for Diaw, whose contract expires at the end of the season.
