AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -Chris Webber and Richard Hamilton missed the game against the Denver Nuggets on Monday night with flu-like symptoms.
With Will Blalock and Amir Johnson assigned to the NBDL, Webber was listed on Detroit's active roster even though he hadn't even come to the arena. Hamilton, who missed Sunday's win in Milwaukee, also stayed home.
Backup guard Flip Murray was suffering from a similar illness, but the training staff was trying to get his fever down so that he could play.
Looks like someone with the AP is doing their best Mitch Albom impression, throwing the past-tense around for a game that hasn't even started. In any case, like Q-Dog said, the silver lining is more time for Carlos Delfino and Jason Maxiell. The Nuggets like to get up and down the court in a hurry, so this should be a fun game to watch.
