Trevor Booker worked out Tuesday, and could be seen walking normally on his left ankle, but he didn't participate in practice and his status for Wednesday's game vs. the Boston Celtics remains in limbo (CSN, 7 p.m. ET).

Booker went down with a sprain Saturday vs. the Detroit Pistons and didn't return to that game. The backup for Nene at power forward, Booker sat out Monday's home game vs. the Philadelphia 76ers.

"He's feeling better today. Again, he'll be game-time (decision)," coach Randy Wittman said. "He did some light running and some shooting today. Felt better, he said. We'll see in another 24 hours."

Jan Vesely was the first post player off the bench in Booker's absence and then Kevin Seraphin entered. Both played well against the 76ers, combining for 22 points on 9-for-15 shooting and 11 rebounds. 

The guess here is that unless there is a setback after Tuesday's practice such as swelling or soreness, Booker should be back.
