Doc gave a number of players the night off, but it was "nothing serious."
Pierce, Garnett, Brandon Bass, Darko Milicic and Chris Wilcox all sat out the game. "It’s nothing serious," said Rivers. "This was a scheduled day (off) for Kevin — and Paul, actually, even though Paul tweaked his (left) ankle. I wasn’t going to play him tonight regardless. I told them that before the Brooklyn game (Thursday). Darko (right wrist) would have played. He’ll probably play (tonight at home against Philadelphia), and Brandon (bruised right knee), we’ll just wait and see. But they’re fine."
