--G Garrett Temple had a career-high 17 points and impressed Silas sufficiently that he might be a keeper when the lockout is over and the Bobcats are thinking about needing a third point guard.
--F Boris Diaw had a single rebound in 34 minutes, which says too much about why the Bobcats don't see him as a long-term solution, no matter how skilled he is, at power forward.
--C Kwame Brown's 23-point, 11-rebound performance against Miami reinforces that he is the most cost-effective player on this team, drawing a veteran-minimum salary of about $850,000.
--F D.J. White looks like a keeper; he has a solid mid-range jump shot and rebounds better than Boris Diaw because he blocks out so relentlessly.
--F Stephen Jackson continues to be out with a hamstring strain and might not play the rest of the season.
--G Shaun Livingston missed the last six games with a bruised tailbone suffered against the Bucks.
--F Tyrus Thomas missed his sixth straight game with soreness in his left knee.
--F Eduardo Najera is likely out the rest of the season with back spasms
--C Joel Przybilla is out for the season and will have another procedure on his surgically repaired left knee. It's highly unlikely Przybilla, whose contract expires after this season, will ever play again for the Bobcats.
--C DeSagana Diop is out until next winter, recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon.
