New Orleans Hornets center Chris Kaman is unlikely to play in any of the team's final five games due to a bruised left tibia, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. The injury is on the lower end of his left leg, and with the Hornets having little to play for at the end of the year, it's little surprise that Kaman would want to sit out.
Kaman is averaging 13.1 points and 7.7 rebounds per game in 47 games for the Hornets this season after being acquired in the Chris Paul blockbuster deal. The Hornets tried to trade Kaman at the trade deadline, but found no takers. He is in the last year of his contract.
