Kenneth Faried took a hard fall in Monday's game and had the wind knocked out of him, as well as hit his head on the floor.
He briefly left the game but was able to return and finish, although he skipped Tuesday's practice. "He didn't have to practice today," coach George Karl said. "I saw him in the hot tub, getting a massage." Faried is fourth in the league in rebounding and first in offensive boards, and Karl said there was "no question" he will be ready to go against the Heat on Thursday.
