We will find out their status at 10:30 a.m. (Arrowhead Time) this morning. That's when the inactives for the early games are due so Romeo Crennel will have to indicate whether they'll be active for today's game or not. If they're active Crennel will likely be playing them, or at least having them give it a shot.

Doubtful and almost certainly out today: Allen Bailey, Kendrick Lewis and Anthony Toribio.

Questionable: Jovan Belcher, Jalil Brown, Brandon Flowers and Derrick Johnson.
