Turiaf To Go

Ailing forward/center Ronny Turiaf, who was not even present in the building for Game 2, is ready to go for Saturday’s Game 3 contest.

Turiaf was able to eat and regain some of the strength that he lost while suffering a sore throat that caused him to lose 11 pounds.

“I feel alright. I’m ready to go,” said Turiaf.

Phil Jackson didn’t express the same confidence, but expects Ronny to be on the court today.

“I don’t know if he’ll lead them in cheers coming out of the locker room and going out to the court, but he’ll be able to play he says.”
