Baron Davis Upset at Benching after Stomach Ailment

Davis also was fuming about being taken out of the starting lineup Tuesday. He missed Tuesday morning’s practice, staying back at the hotel with a "stomach ailment.”

"I’m upset. I don’t think it’s fair,” Davis said after the game. "If my health caused me to miss a one-hour, walk-around practice, and that determines my position on the team, then I’m not going to be happy. I didn’t know I wasn’t going to be able to start. I guess that is a new rule that was put in today.”

Davis had 16 points and nine assists in 26 minutes. He first entered the game midway in the first quarter.

Although he blamed his stomach issue on food he had eaten the night before, it was clear that Hughes wasn’t buying his explanation.
