Antonio Daniels, who was limping on a sore left ankle after the game last night, did not practice today but received treatment and is expected to be available tomorrow night against Utah.
Caron Butler, who missed the last two games with a strained left hip flexor, was at home today sick with the flu. I hear he's pretty bad. That, combined with the hip issue, could mean that he doesn't go tomorrow night but they do call the man "Tough Juice" so we'll have to see. The team is calling Butler "day to day."
-No official word on the all-star announcement yet but put it this way: don't be surprised if Butler and Jamison are on the team.
- To clarify something I wrote in Monday's paper. I stated that in the last 10 years, only two players have averaged at least 20 points and 10 rebounds on a team with a winning record at the season's halfway mark and did not play on all-star team. That's technically correct but Carlos Boozer (last season) and Chris Webber (02-03) did not play because of injury. They were all-stars. I wrote that Monday but wasn't clear enough about it. Sorry for any confusion.
