Josh Boone isn't quite 100 percent recovered from the bone bruise on his ankle that he suffered more than three weeks ago, but he has been cleared to play. The only problem is that not only has he been replaced as the starting center by Brook Lopez, he's been replaced as the backup by Stromile Swift. "We're playing really good basketball, and I don't want to come in and mess any chemistry up. I'm sure I'll be eased in anyway," Boone said Monday. Meanwhile, Lawrence Frank laments the firing of another coach, one he beat by 29 points three days ago.
