I’m guessing Derrick White will start with Marcus Smart out. That puts more minutes in play for Payton Pritchard. Could also open up minutes for Aaron Nesmith or Sam Hauser.
We may get more from Ime Udoka on who will start in about 15 minutes or so. – 5:01 PM

Quite the testament to Marcus Smart’s value that he won Defensive Player of the Year and I still think his absence tonight might be more notable on the offensive end. – 5:01 PM
