Opening day of the NBA is here! The Knicks play the Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday and not everyone can make it. Let's hit the tweets!
Afflalo (strained left hamstring), Amundson (sore lower back) & Seraphin (sore right knee) are listed as doubtful for tomorrow night @Bucks— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) October 27, 2015
POW! Lou Amundson and Kevin Seraphin ain't playin! No joke. The real deal is Arron Afflalo not being ready. That hammy continues to slow cook our starting line up.
Arron Afflalo is doubtful for tomorrow. Fisher says Grant, Vujacic and Galloway are candidates to replace him at shooting guard.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) October 27, 2015
Important news! That means that a guard will replace a guard if we need a guard to be replaced. Fascinating. The Knicks aren't the only team that will be without though.
Report: Jabari Parker not ready for Bucks opener against Knicks https://t.co/oYwstERngF— Kurt Helin (@basketballtalk) October 27, 2015
Bucks coach Jason Kidd said O.J. Mayo is out for season opener with hamstring injury. Giannis practiced Tues. but also out (league susp).— cfgardner (@cf_gardner) October 27, 2015
Too bad for Jabari. Can't get a master class from Carmelo Anthony. Holding the Mayo. And Giannis Antetokounmpo anticipated an atmosphere for some anti-Thanasis Antetokounmpo Knicks camp hullabaloo so he approached Mike Dunleavy's head bone with animosity in advance of this opening day game as a protest. Respect.
Will Sasha Vujacic start and let Jerryd Bayless torch the Knicks through three quarters? Will Chris Copeland fire flames and daggers in his return to New York and the Garden!? Tune in! Find out! BASKETBALL BACK!
