Bobcats’ Diaw inactive after games-played streak ends
CHARLOTTE, N.C. | Boris Diaw was declared inactive for the Charlotte Bobcats’ game against Utah on Wednesday night.
That news comes after Silas refused to play Diaw against Orlando Tuesday night, snapping the veteran’s string of 384 consecutive games played.
Bobcats coach Paul Silas says he “doesn’t know” if Diaw will play again this season.
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was in Miami’s starting lineup for Wednesday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, one night after tweaking his right ankle.
Wade did not play in the second half of Miami’s game against New Jersey on Tuesday after turning the ankle, though he insisted afterward he could have returned if necessary.
He sprained the same ankle and missed six games earlier this season.
The NBA fined Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Kidd $25,000 for criticizing the officiating in a game earlier this week.
Kidd was fined for comments he made following the Mavericks’ 95-91 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night.
