ABOUT THE KINGS (10-16)
: Rookie Isaiah Thomas is having trouble with swelling in the knuckle of his left hand. He had a chipped fracture on the knuckle during Monday’s game in New Orleans. “It's tough to catch and shoot,” he said. “I've been trying to adjust it by shooting a lot and seeing how I can do a little different. Once the swelling goes down, it'll be all right.” Guard John Salmons is shooting a career-worst 36.8 percent and averaging just 7.6 points, half of his average from last season.
