Chris Kaman misses shootaround with head injury

Backup center Chris Kaman did not participate in Tuesday's shootaround in Portland due to a potential head injury suffered during Monday's practice. Rick Carlisle told reporters that Kaman's status for tonight's game against the Trail Blazers has yet to be determined.

Kaman's hasn't started the past two games as Carlisle has been using a center-by-committee approach with Elton Brand and Bernard James also in the mix.

While Kaman made it clear he wasn’t happy after playing a season-low 11 minutes Sunday, he didn’t want to elaborate on the subject, figuring it was better to keep his thoughts to himself instead of venting his frustration publicly.
