NEW YORK (AP) -Coach Mike Dunleavy missed the Clippers' game against the Knicks on Monday night, sidelined by the flu bug that has played havoc with his team over the last week.
Dunleavy remained in bed at the team hotel, with the Clippers hoping he could make it to the arena at some point to catch the team bus after the game. Assistant coach Kim Hughes ran the team in his absence.
Chris Kaman and Corey Maggette were back in uniform after both had missed the last four games because of the flu.
Knicks center Eddy Curry was back after he, too, had been sidelined by flu-like symptoms for two games. New York was without key reserve Nate Robinson because of a bruised left quadriceps.
