Shelden Williams will start again tonight.

Mike D'Antoni said after the last game that, in Ronny Turiaf's absence, he'd continue to start Shawne Williams to spread the floor for the first unit and save Shelden Williams from early foul trouble. Now that Extra E has also been scratched, She-Will start by default [high fives self]. Here, Steve Adamek twat it in case you don't believe me:

D'Antoni: Shawne Williams "doubtful" tonight, Turiaf out, so Shelden Williams to start at center unless Shawne Williams is 100%

So, cool. She-will have his work cut out for him (BAM! Again!) against the tall and schvitzy Brooke Lopez and/or the board-happy Kris Humphries, but his performance against Dwight Howard the other night suggests that he's up for the task. It'll be interesting to see what happens if and when Shelden and Amar'e Stoudemire get into foul trouble against New Jersey's front line. Jared Jeffries will probably be the first man off the bench, but after that, it's pretty bare. Might we see Derrick Brown? Might Renaldo Balkman be activated? Might D'Antoni finally engage his secret weapon (Anthony Carter's telescoping legs)?
