Willy Hernangomez will start at center in Sunday's preseason game.
Hernangomez draws the start with Cody Zeller resting. Considering Zeller's injury history it's no surprise that he's getting a day off here. Hernangomez had nine points and eight boards off the bench in 18 minutes in Friday's game but his line would've been much better if not for an uncharacteristic 3-for-10 mark from the line. He looks to be in the driver's seat for the backup spot at the moment since Bismack Biyombo didn't even play in the first game. You could do a lot worse with a late-round flier than the talented young Spaniard. The only other change in the starting five tonight is Michael Kidd-Gilchrist drawing in for the resting Marvin Williams.
