Monday's Practice

A quick update after today's session. We saw the team go through some transition drills, but that was about it.

Delonte West did not practice because of a right quad contusion. He is a game-time decision tomorrow night against Golden State. Robert Swift isn't likely to play much, if at all, in the game. At this point, back-to-backs are a tough order for Swift's knee, and he'll probably see more action against the bigger Blazers on Wednesday in Portland.

That means Nick Collison and Chris Wilcox will probably get an opportunity to work together on the court for the first time this preseason. P.J. Carlesimo also said that the team will look at Jeff Green and possibly Wally Szczerbiak as power forwards either tomorrow or Friday, when the Sonics face another running team in Phoenix.
