Clayton Stoner (abdominal surgery) is an option for Game 1 of the Western Conference Final.

Clayton Stoner (abdominal surgery) isn't likely to be available in the second round.

Stoner last played on Nov. 15 and he's run into problems with his recovery. "I guess it would be up to the doctors," Stoner said. "Just not 100 percent, that’s all. Just tight and sore." Even if he did get the green light, he might be held out of the lineup over concerns about rust.
