Grim news from Kings practice

Here are a few nuggets from practice today.

* Kings coach Kenny Natt missed practice to be with family in New York after learning his grandmother passed away. Natt will rejoin the team tomorrow in Milwaukee.

* Kings leading scorer Kevin Martin also missed practice to attend his great-grandmother's funeral in Zanesville, Ohio. Martin will rejoin the team tomorrow as well.

* Kings reserve Shelden Williams was handed a possible setback today, just two days after playing 17 minutes, his most playing time since Nov. 3, in a 110-107 loss to the Washington Wizards. Williams strained his left wrist and is listed as day-to-day.
Williams scored five points and had five rebounds and two steals against the Wizards on Wednesday.

* And on a lighter note - Kings rookie Jason Thompson still holds out hope of being named to the rookie-sophomore game to be played All-Star weekend. Assistant coaches will vote by Monday on who will be selected.
"That's one of the goals I set for myself," Thompson said. "I will be looking to see what happens. Obviously, I think I've gone through what most rookies have gone through. They have been playing well at times, not as good at times and then back at it. I feel like I've been in the mix of things and I've been hearing good things. We will see what happens."
