Kings Play Without Two Of Their Best

By  | 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Sacramento Kings are without top scorer Kevin Martin and fellow starter Andres Nocioni for tonight's game in Charlotte.

Martin is back at the team hotel with what coach Kenny Natt calls a "bug." Martin leads the team by scoring 24.2 points per game.

Nocioni has been playing with tendinitis in his right quadriceps that flared up after last night's game in Atlanta. Natt says Nocioni will be listed as day-to-day.

Rashad McCants started at shooting guard for Martin, and Francisco Garcia got the nod at Nocioni's spot at small forward for the Kings.
