CHICAGO -- Chicago Bulls guard Chris Duhon sat out practice today at the Berto Center, a day after he was taken to a hospital after crashing to the floor during last night's exhibition game against Minnesota.

Duhon was carried off the floor on a stretcher after being fouled by Eddie Griffin on a drive to the basket.

The team says tests performed at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis turned up negative.

Duhon is expected to play in the team's regular season opener versus the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday.

Also, the team announced the release of forward Randy Holcomb. The 6-foot-9 rookie appeared in six preseason games and averaged five points and a little over three rebounds.
