So I just got back from Las Vegas. I came back with a pretty severe head cold at that, so you can imagine my eventual surprise in watching the Nuggets game against the Toronto Raptors that there was no Danilo Gallinari, Andre Iguodala, Wilson Chandler and JaVale McGee playing (I turned the game on in the second quarter). I knocked back some Alka-Seltzer and yet my view did not change.

Oh my, this makes writing tonight's preview that much more challenging. And I'm ill - lovely. So I tell you what folks, just ignore the above listed starting lineups because, let's face it, we have no clue who will be playing tonight. Zero. Hopefully as we get close to game time it will be come clearer.

In the meantime the Brooklyn Nets. Oh ... looks like Deron Williams isn't playing tonight. Well, ok then. Who is playing in his place ... ummm...

Says here it will most likely be C.J. Watson. Yep, C.J. Watson who used to back up Derrick Rose as I recall. Small guy, speedster. Yeah.
