Avery Johnson will wait til game time to decide if Troy Murphy plays, even starts. He'll also be waiting on Anthony Morrow's status as well. Morrow twisted his ankle Tuesday afternoon and could only participate in part of Wednesday morning's shoot around. Morrow said he will play against Charlotte, his hometown team.
Al Iannazzone tweets that even if Murphy does play--and he believes that will be the case, the coach will institute a minutes restriction. Johnson didn't say how many. If Murphy doesn't start, it will be Kris Humphries.
