The Sacramento Kings and
Toronto Raptors have been the most injury-plagued teams this

The Kings have been hit hard by injuries this season, losing
well over 200 man-games as stars Chris Webber
, Peja Stojakovic
and Mike Bibby
have spent considerable time on the sidelines.
The only team that has suffered more injuries is the Raptors,
who have lost more than 300 man-games. Their biggest loss was
superstar guard Vince Carter
, who missed most of the first half
of the season.
But while Toronto has had to use inexperienced bench players and
sign minor-leaguers to 10-day contracts, Sacramento has relied
on its tremendous depth to remain atop the Pacific Division.
Pollard was among the injured Kings, missing three months after
undergoing back surgery before returning earlier this month. In
this one, the backup forward-center spelled foul-prone Vlade
and had his best game of the season.
Chris Webber had 26 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings, who
bounced back from Thursday's ugly loss at Phoenix and have won
10 of their last 12 games.
