Ryan Anderson (ankle) has been ruled out for Game 1.
Coach D’Antoni said that Joe Johnson and Trevor Ariza will work as the backup fours which will be interesting if they have to match up with Taj Gibson or Gorgui Dieng. James Harden could also draw those assignments as he’s the league’s No. 1 player in fewest points allowed per post up possession.
