Boone To Start in Yi's Absence

Josh Boone hasn't played in five games, but he will be starting Monday in Memphis with Yi Jianlian rehabbing his ankle back in New Jersey.  And he could get several starts with Kiki Vandeweghe estimating Yi will be out for 10 days or so. "That's typically how it goes," said Boone. "The first big off the bench tends to not start when someone goes down just so the rotation doesn't get messed up a little bit."  Kris Humphries, who has supplied energy the last several games, will come off the bench. 

After taking a look at the renderings of Barclays Center, Julian Garcia thinks they look like the FedEx Forum in Memphis.  Not a surprise.  The two buildings, along with another seven NBA arenas, were designed by Ellerbe Becket of Kansas City.
