Kings' Francisco Garcia misses game with sore calf


ATLANTA (AP) - Sacramento forward Francisco Garcia is not playing against the Atlanta Hawks because of a sore left calf.

Garcia was not included on the team's pregame injury report and was expected to start in Monday's game before coach Paul Westphal decided to rest the fifth-year player. The injury is not believed to be serious.

Garcia is averaging 9.3 points, but he made only 2 of 10 shots for 6 points in the Kings' last game, a 110-106 loss at Detroit on Saturday.

Westphal is starting a big lineup, with 6-foot-11 Donte Green starting for the 6-foot-7 Garcia.
