This was just a quick blurb on NBATV. This will definently be an uphill battle now.

What is wrong with his thumb?

It was all taped up in the last game. He got it caught in another players jersey.

It says on NBA.com that he has decided to play despite the thumb. But that could have been an earlier update of course.

I'm watching ESPN. We'll see what they say...

Well, there it is. Artest IS playing after all.

Honestly, I'd rather he sit. There's no swingman we need to neutralize tonight, and I'd much rather that his thumb get healthy. His hands have held up better this season, but they're still a mess. And the worse his hands are, the worse his shooting is.

He's going to have his hand looked at when the team is in New York by the guy who operated on it in the past.
