SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Chris Webber missed his second day of practice with the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday to rest his surgically repaired left
Webber, a five-time All-Star who played just 23 games last season, hopes two days of rest will reduce swelling in his knee. Last week, the forward
said his knee felt strong after a summer of rest.
He underwent surgery after tearing ligaments in his knee during a playoff game against Dallas in May 2002. The Kings struggled when he returned to the
lineup last season, blowing the Pacific Division title and eventually losing a seven-game series to Minnesota in the second round of the playoffs.
The Kings will depart for a preseason trip to China after Sunday's home exhibition game against Golden State.
