Marcus Fizer, who the Hornets signed to a 10-day contract last Friday, still has yet to play in a game.

Coach Byron Scott said Fizer has intangibles that should allow him to receive playing time, if only sporadically. "His talent and his experience makes it a little bit easier for me to look down on that bench if we got some foul trouble and know that I could throw him out there and be all right with him," Scott said. The former first-round draft selection is coming off an MVP season in the D-League.

The departures of Keith Van Horn and Mike James mean that Marcus Fizer and Erick Strickland have moved into the Bucks' regular rotation and will get significantly more playing time.
