Travers sat out game one with a calf injury and the extra time between games wasn’t enough to have him declared fit.

Steindl hurt his groin in the first half on Friday night and couldn’t return to the court.

Perth must now play with a severely undermanned team today and hope they will be available for game three in Melbourne on Friday night.

They will now rely on their bench players and youngsters to have a massive impact after losing the opening game of the best of five series.
