« Diaw: Skilled, savvy, unreliable | Main | Tyrus Thomas out tonight vs. Bulls »

Thomas back; Jackson, too?

Charlotte Bobcats coach Paul Silas said at practice Tuesday that Tyrus Thomas and -- quite surprisingly -- Stephen Jackson should both play against the Chicago Bulls Wednesday.

Thomas has been out since mid-January, after surgery to repair torn meniscus in his left knee. Jackson was held out of losses to the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Clippers due to a strained left hamstring.

Silas had said he would take a conservative approach to Jackson's injury. Jackson did not practice Tuesday, but Silas said he anticipates Jackson playing against the Bulls.

Silas said the Bobcats will likely be without Matt Carroll, who sprained an ankle in the first half of the Clippers game. Point guard D.J. Augustin also sat out practice with an ankle sprain, but will likely play against the Bulls

Your Mom, we are 2-1 vs. the Bulls this year. I'd say they don't think it's "no problem."

Thank goodness! The Cats just looked tired last night in the second half. They need more scoring bodies in the line up so they don't just peter out.

I hope there are no set backs from these injuries, while were trying to qualify for the last spot.

GDub had a good game yesterday man he still got it. Ok just cause he don't play for the bobcats that doesn't mean I can't watch the game. And also Tyrus and Jack back, hopefully Silas works Tyrus in the line up. Silas may need to sit Diaw for the bench if Tyrus can crank it up!!!!

I hope they are not rushing Tyrus for the last spot. I dont trust silas in that regard.

According to league sources New Jersey Nets guard Deron Williams is interested in the Bobcats once free agency hits. This source is from UL7.com, click on sports then it should still be front page.
