Brook Lopez (rest) will not play in Friday’s game against the Cavs.
Lopez and his teammates are all candidates for rest as it will help spread the minutes of a log-jammed, young roster and it will also keep war horses like Lopez healthy. Justin Hamilton will get a chance to show he has something in him and the game might increase in pace, though the Cavs could easily control everything and/or blow them out. And if the Cavs lose tonight then everybody is going to lose it.
