Chris Kaman excused for grandmother's funeral

DALLAS -- Center Chris Kaman was excused from Monday's practice to attend his grandmother's funeral.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Kaman is expected to return to Dallas on Monday night and rejoin the team for the morning shootaround before Tuesday's home game against the 76ers.

Kaman left the team after Saturday's loss in Minnesota, traveling on his own to meet his family.
