Thomas likely back tonight

Charlotte Bobcats coach Paul Silas expects to get back power forward Tyrus Thomas (bruised ribs) for tonight’s home game against the Milwaukee Bucks, although it sounds like Thomas won’t be up to playing extended minutes.

          “We’ve got to work him back in. I’m not sure he’ll be able to really sustain anything for about a week,’’ Silas said following morning shootaround.

          Leading scorer Stephen Jackson missed shootaround with a headache, but Silas said Jackson should be ready to play tonight. The Bobcats should also get back big man Eduardo Najera (bruised shoulder), who missed the Knicks game.

          Silas anticipates center Joel Przybilla (sore knee) is done for the season.

          Also, the Bobcats have signed third point guard Garrett Temple for the rest of the season, after he completed his second 10-day contract.

Thanks, Rick. Note that Tyrus's name is spelled incorrectly in the home page link to your blog post.

Glad to hear Tyrus is back! We need him to get back to where he was prior to the injury. Let's hope Charlotte beats Milwaukee tonight so they can continue on the path to hopefully make the playoffs again this season! Go Bobcats!

Wish we had Joel P; we could use all the large bodies we can get to throw at Bogut. But we should easily win tonight unless we allow Bogut and Jennings to score 30 each.

Joel P never wanted to be here and misses his kin in Ore. Good riddance you stiff.

Love him, but Tyrus has to get his emotions under control as well.

These injuries have really shown how little depth we have on the bench. We wouldn't be anywhere without Gerald Henderson and DJ being able to play most of the game right now.

Did anyone else hold their breath when Shaun Livingston hurt his knee against the Knicks? That knee is such a liability. Good on him for trying to keep playing, but Silas should have taken him out immediately.
