Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said Monday that center Al Jefferson is doubtful to play in Game 4 vs. the Miami Heat in Charlotte. Jefferson suffered a torn plantar fascia in Game 1 of the series and hasn't been the same since.

Jefferson averaged 21.8 points and 10.8 rebouds on 51 percen shooting in the regular season and is averaging just 18.7 points on 49 percent shooting in the playoffs. The Bobcats are down 3-0 in the series headed into Game 4 and have shown no capacity to keep up with the Heat from a firepower perspective.
