Tim Thomas says he'll play tonight despite suffering a hyper-extended left knee Friday in Orlando. Thomas, who just a week ago seemed like an unstoppable force, was limited to just five points in the 111-89 loss to the Magic and played five minutes in the second half after hitting the floor hard with Grant Hill in the third quarter.
Thomas did not practice yesterday but told reporters on his way off the court after shooting free throws with the rest of the team that he would play tonight against Golden State at the Garden. He's listed as probable.
"I'm not sure," coach Herb Williams said. "I think Tim will be OK. I haven't had a chance to sit down and talk to him yet. He didn't come back in last night, he didn't do much today. Hopefully he'll be ready for [tonight]."
