Brewer Out

Ronnie Brewer will be out of action tonight versus the Orlando Magic. The passing of his aunt has sent him back home to attend her funeral services.

Brewer was noticably ailing during the Portland game on Thursday night. One could visibly tell that he was affected by the family news regarding his aunt. He didn't seem to be playing with his usual energy and enthusiasm.

We hope that Ronnie returns soon and might be able to overcome this sad and tragic time for his family.

The questions remains... who replaces Brewer in the starting line-up? Kirilenko? Korver? Almond? If I were making the decision, I'd play Morris Almond at the 2-guard, so as to keep the rotations the same. AK47 and KK26 seem to relish coming off the bench and bringing the instant offense and defensive spark. Let's keep it the same.

Considering Ronnie has been on fire recently and actually Ds people up, I think replacing him with Almond (2-8 from the field and 0-2 from the line in 19 minutes) might just have been the difference in Saturday's game.
