With forward Tyrus Thomas showing signs of leg fatigue, Charlotte Bobcats coach Paul Silas chose to sit him, with hopes he'll play Thursday in Atlanta - the first of three games in three nights for the Bobcats.

In essence, these opening games are "practices" or "preseason" games as coaches continue to look at their roster and how to best use their players.Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale can attest to this. McHale is still trying to find the right rotations even though...

Just five days ago, the Knicks looked headed for a fullblown crisis after the pitiful Bobcats threw a 118-point Garden party and former Phoenix stud Boris Diaw became coach Mike D’Antoni’s and Amar’e Stoudemire’s worst nightmare.
