So there's an actual game tonight. A couple quick things on that:

  • Hilton Armstrong isn't playing because he got a one-game suspension for that shove on Joel Anthony in the Heat game.
  • John Wall is a game-time decision and did go through shootaround.
  • Wall got beat out for NBA Rookie of the Month this month by the Knicks' Landry Fields. Seriously, Landry Fields? (Editor's note: it's probably because of Wall's injury. Still, it's fun to hate).

UPDATE: Wall and Al Thornton are playing, but off the bench.
