CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -The Charlotte Bobcats will get both of their point guards back for Monday's game against Denver.
Raymond Felton and Jeff McInnis went through the team's shootaround Monday morning and were cleared to play against the Nuggets.
``I'll be ready. I'm going to get out there and hoop,'' said Felton, who sprained his right ankle in Friday's double-overtime loss to Cleveland. ``I've played through pain. I've done it before.''
Felton and McInnis (strained right quadriceps) missed Saturday's overtime loss to Detroit, leaving Charlotte without a point guard. The Bobcats were forced to have shooting guards and small forwards bring the ball up the floor.
``It's a relief that it's not an extended time they're going to be out,'' said coach Sam Vincent, who indicated reserve guard Derek Anderson would also play Monday after missing five games with a bruised right knee.
Vincent also said Monday that general manager Rod Higgins had contacted the league office about a disputed basket interference call that wiped out Nazr Mohammed's go-ahead tip-in for Charlotte with 1.5 seconds left on Saturday.
``We've watched the tape over and over,'' Vincent said. ``In effect, they destroyed a chance for us to win the game.''
Vincent indicated they were awaiting the league's response before deciding whether they'd file a protest or take any other action.
