 GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) -Knicks point guard Stephon Marbury did not practice Thursday and is not expected to travel to Friday's game at Charlotte.
The team said Marbury was absent because of a combination of flu-like symptoms and personal reasons. Marbury's father died Dec. 2 after becoming ill while attending a game at Madison Square Garden, and Marbury has missed six of the last nine games.
Marbury was in uniform for Wednesday's win over Cleveland but did not play. He had rejoined the team Sunday and played Monday, but didn't practice Tuesday on what would have been his father's birthday.
