Bob­cats’ Diaw in­ac­tive af­ter games-played streak ends

The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

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.
