Original Post (Tuesday):
The Portland Trail Blazers announced on Tuesday that center Marcus Camby is "probable" for Wednesday night's game against the Houston Rockets at the Rose Garden because he has bronchitis. He did not practice with the team on Tuesday.
I would point out that the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute reports that elderly people are at a higher risk for the condition, which is an inflammation of the air passages that service the lungs. But, you know, respect these years.
The Rockets, 14-11 on the season, have Samuel Dalembert, Luis Scola and Jordan Hill in the middle.
Camby, 37, is averaging 3.4 points and 10.0 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game so far this season.
