The evening’s marquee matchup loses one of its greatest stars. Michael Beasley will start in his place and Joakim Noah will join the active roster but remains unlikely to see much, if any, action. Beasley is a fine roll of the dice in case his shots drop in this one while Kyle O’Quinn should also see extra time. Enes Kanter will get all the work he can handle and Willy Hernangomez may even emerge from the doghouse. If Noah plays over any of those guys, we give up.
