UPDATES & NEWS
Carlos Gonzalez (finger) will take batting practice when team gets home and hit in live batting practice on Saturday.
This sounds like very positive news and speak sof an impending return. CarGo will take his cuts in the cage and if all goes well, he'll start up some live batting practice. If that works out for him, a minor league rehab assignment is next, but they probably won't require him to play too many games on the farm before returning.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Gary Neal will start Monday against the Clippers.
Neal will be starting in place of Kevin Martin, who is dealing with some sort of bug that has been going around. With the added minutes, Neal should be able to bring his nine point per game production up to more helpful levels, so give him a shot on Monday night, if you feel so inclined. Analysis: Dom Murtha
