The game at Washington was the 21st in a row Lewis has missed since getting hurt. Hill said Lewis, Seattle’s second-leading scorer with 21.9points per game, would move into the starting lineup when he can play, with Mickael Gelabale heading to the bench. Payton suspended for a game: Miami Heat guard Gary Payton was suspended and sat out Monday’s game against Charlotte for talking back to an official who ejected him during a win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday. The 16-year veteran, starting in place of an injured Jason Williams, was ejected by Mark Davis for arguing a call just before halftime. Before leaving the floor, Payton leaned in close and said something to Davis. Iverson, Camby out against Suns: The Denver Nuggets were without stars Allen Iverson and Marcus Camby for their game against the Phoenix Suns on Monday night.

Iverson missed his fourth straight game with a sprained right ankle and said he hoped to return Wednesday night against the Hornets. Several other Nuggets were ailing. Carmelo Anthony has a swollen middle finger on his right hand and a sore left wrist, Reggie Evans has a sprained right ankle and Steve Blake has 12 stitches in his upper lip after catching an inadvertent elbow from Ron Artest on Saturday night. Bulls’ Nocioni out with foot injury: Andres Nocioni was taken out of the lineup for the Chicago Bulls game at the Utah Jazz because of a foot injury. Nocioni, who did not participate in the morning shootaround, has an inflamed arch in his right foot. He underwent an MRI on Monday to determine if the injury is a tear, the team announced on its Web site.

They will be joined by Hall of Famer Julius Erving and two other champs who will play in the All-Star game: Kobe Bryant and Vince Carter. New York guard Nate Robinson will try to defend his title in the Feb. 17 event in Las Vegas.
