Bobcats activate rookie Okafor, Robinson

Updated:
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) _ The Charlotte Bobcats activated rookie center Emeka Okafor and forward Bernard Robinson for Friday night's game against the Miami Heat.

Okafor missed the previous five games while on the injured list with a sprained left ankle, cutting short a solid debut season. He leads all rookies in scoring (14.9 points a game), rebounding (11.1) and minutes played (35.8).

Robinson has averaged 1.4 points in limited action this season.

The Bobcats put center Jahidi White on the injured list Friday.

Also, starting center Primoz Brezec missed Friday's game with a bruised left knee, and point guard Brevin Knight was not in the starting lineup for disciplinary reasons.

Coach Bernie Bickerstaff said he didn't know how long Brezec would be out, but said the player broke a minor team rule.

Forward Kareem Rush missed his third straight game with back spasms.
