This will be Miles’ second straight game missed because of a dental procedure but it shouldn’t be a long term situation at all. Nogueira still hasn’t been given an official timetable to return but is inching closer. Bebe has always been a stat magnet but will struggle to get meaningful minutes in a deep rotation. Toronto has enough depth to deal with their wave of minor injuries, and the fact that they were able to thoroughly thump the Hornets last night meant that their starters basically got the fourth quarter off. As a result, they shouldn’t drop any surprise rest days on tonight’s second half of this back-to-back. Neither Miles nor Nogueira are standard league plays unless injuries hit players ahead of them on the depth chart.
