ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Beno Udrih, Shooting guard Kevin Martin, Small forward John Salmons, Power forward Mikki Moore, Center Spencer Hawes. Bench -- Forward Jason Thompson, Guard Bobby Jackson, Guard Quincy Douby, Forward Shelden Williams, forward Kenny Thomas.

PLAYER NOTES:

--F Mikki Moore is off to a horrendous start, having grabbed just four rebounds and scored 18 points in a combined 77 minutes. Making matters worse for the 11-year veteran, rookie forward Jason Thompson is off to a productive start that has dropped Moore's minutes from 29.1 per game last season to 19.7 minutes this season.

--G Kevin Martin is shooting just 38.6 percent overall and has hit just 6-of-24 3-pointers (25 percent). His 13 turnovers are second on the team behind point guard Beno Udrih (15).

--C Spencer Hawes can head back to Sacramento for Wednesday's home opener against Memphis with his head high, as the second-year center has held his own in four starts. Though Hawes has been hurt by foul trouble, he has averaged 12.5 points (48.8 percent shooting) and 9.3 rebounds while tallying a team-high nine blocks.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--G/F Francisco Garcia (strained right calf) missed the regular-season opener at Minnesota on Wednesday and is expected to miss at least another 12 days.
