Webber Back for Kings

April 27, 2003

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ Sacramento forward Chris Webber returned to the starting lineup Saturday for Game 3 of the Kings’ opening-round playoff series against the Utah Jazz.

Webber didn’t practice during the week because of his back, which he injured in the second quarter Monday night while going for a rebound in Sacramento’s win over Utah in Game 2.

Webber was questionable up until game time, when he was introduced with the Kings starters.

Webber led the Kings with 23.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game during the regular season. He had eight points, two rebounds and two assists in 13 minutes before getting hurt Monday. Webber scored a game-high 27 points in the series opener.
