Andray Blatche doubtful for game against Timberwolves with shoulder injury

New, comments

Unsurprisingly, Andray Blatche's sprained shoulder didn't really feel any better today than it did yesterday, when he had to leave the game against the Kings.  Blatche didn't participate in today's brief practice and is "day-to-day," which means he's probably unlikely to play against the Timberwolvesaccording to Michael Lee.

Blatche was hoping the shoulder would get better overnight, but it hasn't. 

After the game, Blatche said he was hoping that he would wake up and feel better. But as he headed out of the arena, Blatche said, "It was worse. I couldn't sleep at night. I couldn't lay comfortably. A lot of pain."    

It looks like Rashard Lewis will slide over to power forward, freeing up the small forward spot for Al Thornton.  It's a perfectly defensible way of altering the lineup.  Still, I'd rather see Lewis stay at small forward and start one of the other backup power forwards (okay, I really mean Trevor Booker).  We love versatility, but I'd rather see some consistency in positions and roles, even if Lewis is capable of playing at both spots. 

But I might just be acting silly right now.  Thoughts?  Who'd you put in the starting lineup for Blatche?
