When head coach Scott Brooks was asked about Rui Hachimura's chances of starting opening night, he replied, "It's probably leaning that way."
This is about as close to an affirmative as we are going to get before the Wizards release the starting lineup for there first regular season game on October 23. Hachimura has been able to deliver numbers throughout the preseason and is looking like a roster worthy asset in standard fantasy leagues as a rookie. He is also getting another preseason start vs. the Sixers on Friday.
