P.J. Tucker will miss Thursday's preseason game.
Tucker is still dealing with back soreness. Carmelo Anthony will slide in as the starting power forward and James Ennis will start at the three. It's the same lineup Houston used in their first preseason game, but the rigidity of Melo at the four does point to him coming off the bench since Tucker is a highly-valued member of the starting five.
