Aaron Gray (ankle) unsure of status
LOS ANGELES -- New Orleans center Aaron Gray isn't sure whether he'll be able to play in the Hornets' next postseason game on his sprained right ankle.
Gray scored a season-high 12 points in the Hornets' 109-100 upset victory over the Lakers on Sunday, but had to be helped off the court by teammates with 1:07 to play after Pau Gasol accidentally stepped on his foot.
Gray said Monday his ankle feels much better, but he doesn't know if he'll play in Game 2 on Wednesday night. His foot was in a bulky black boot.
Coach Monty Williams says Gray played a big role in negating the Lakers' size advantage in Game 1.
