NBA Finals, Game 5: Brendan Haywood Inactive

Rick Carlisle just announced that Haywood is indeed inactive for tonight’s game.

Tyson Chandler was able to soak up a lot of minutes in the last game but if he gets into foul trouble, Brian Cardinal and Ian Mahinmi will likely get the minutes at the backup 5. Chandler has done a good job of limiting his early foul troubles that have plagued him in the playoffs in this series and that will need to continue tonight.

Rodrigue Beaubois is active in place of Haywood.
