CHARLOTTE, N. Max Pacioretty Canadiens Jersey .C. -- Al Jefferson is doubtful for Game 4 Monday night against the Miami Heat due to a lingering foot injury, according to Bobcats coach Steve Clifford. Jefferson, the teams leading scorer and rebounder, has been hobbled since straining the plantar fascia in his left foot in the first quarter of Game 1. He didnt participate in Mondays shoot around. "Hes not close to where he was for the last two games," Clifford said. Clifford said in Game 3 Jeffersons foot got worse as the game progressed and having only one day off in between games didnt help his chances of being ready for Game 4. Jefferson hobbled noticeably Monday as he left the gym after watching teammates shoot around in practice. Jefferson said he feels as if hes "walking on needles." "I wouldnt wish this pain on anyone," Jefferson said. "Its the worst pain Ive ever dealt with in my career." Jefferson wouldnt rule himself out, saying hes taking things hour-to-hour. "Im seeing how its going to feel and go from there," Jefferson said. Miami leads the series 3-0 and can close out the Bobcats with a win Monday night in Charlotte. Clifford said Bismack Biyombo is expected to start for Jefferson. That represents a major dropoff in production, particularly from the offensive end. Jefferson averaged 21.8 points and 10.8 rebound per game in his first season with the Bobcats, while Biyombo has never scored more than 14 points in a game. Biyombo has only played 15 minutes in the playoffs and scored one point. Jeffersons teammates said they respect his ability to get on the floor the past two games. "He has given us all he can," point guard Kemba Walker said. "And I think down to a man we appreciate his effort. Hes been nothing but great for us. He has been playing really well and hes not 100 per cent." Said Clifford: "I know how badly Al wants to play. The most upset person about this is him. So its frustrating, but again its part of pro sports." Clifford said the Bobcats will play more five-man basketball using pick and rolls, rather than relying on Jefferson in the low post. Walker, the teams second-leading scorer, will be relied upon to help pick up the slack in Jeffersons absence. "We have to find better ways for Kemba to be on the attack," Clifford said. Jefferson said its frustrating that he worked so hard all season only to injure the foot in the first quarter of the playoffs. "This season has been a great season for all of the things we have done so far," Jefferson said. "We are going into the game tonight trying to win... Regardless of what may happen it has been a wonderful season and guys have a lot to be proud of for the things we have done this season. But we cant take any steps back. We have to continue to build and get better." Jefferson said he wont need surgery after the season. Custom Canadiens Jersey . Minutes after the previously winless Colts got their first win, 27-13 over Tennessee, team vice chairman Bill Polian said the four-time league MVP will not play this season though he has begun throwing to teammates at the team complex. Henri Richard Canadiens Jersey . Henderson (20-3) received winning scores of 48-47 and 49-46, and the other judge scored it 48-47 for Thomson (20-6). The announcement drew boos from the United Center crowd. "Train this hard for this long, its such a long camp and I see my title shot disappear," said Thomson, who fought most of the fight with a broken right hand. A nightmare third inning led to a nightmare afternoon for the Winnipeg Goldeyes. Starting pitcher Jason Jarvis got knocked around for nine runs in the third inning on Wednesday, as the Goldeyes (4-3) were thumped 18-5 by the Laredo Lemurs (4-3) before 1,909 fans at Uni-Trade Stadium. Winnipeg dropped the three-game series 2-1 with the loss. In their first day game of the season, the Goldeyes found themselves with an insurmountable deficit after the first eight Lemurs had hits in the bottom of the third, including home runs from Travis Denker and Angel Flores. The barrage chased Jarvis from the game after 2 2/3 innings. The Goldeyes tried to claw back with two runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth on a two-RBI single from second baseman Jake Blackwood. However, Laredo scored singles in the fifth and sixth innings, two more in the seventh aand five runs in the eighth. Jacques Plante Jersey. Winnipegs only other run came in the seventh inning when third baseman Ryan Pineda led off with a triple and then scored on a ground out by catcher Jordan Guida. The Goldeyes committed six errors in the game, which tied a team record from 2002 and led to four Laredo runs. Winnipegs pitching staff issued a season-high seven walks. Jarvis record falls to 1-1 with the loss, while Mike Piazza picked up the win for Laredo. Pineda had three hits and two runs to lead Winnipeg at the plate. The Goldeyes have an off day tomorrow before starting a three-game series at Haymarket Park against the Lincoln Saltdogs on Friday. Matt Jackson (1-0, 0.00) is expected to take the ball for Winnipeg against Nick Green (0-0, 0.00) for the Saltdogs. The series concludes Winnipegs 10-game season-opening road trip.
