DENVER (AP) -Sacramento forward Ron Artest missed the Kings' game at Denver on Saturday night, negating any advantage the team might have had facing a Nuggets club without suspended forward Kenyon Martin.
Artest has a strained left thumb. Also missing the game were center Brad Miller (leg) and guard Beno Udrih (back).
Martin was suspended for one game for picking up his sixth flagrant foul of the season against Phoenix earlier in the week.
