According to Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo, we should expect to see the regular starters in the lineup tonight against the Detroit Pistons for about 18-24 minutes,
PJ said he expects #Nets starters to play roughly 18-24 minutes vs. #Pistons tonight. Last chance for them to get a good sweat going.— Rod Boone (@rodboone) April 17, 2013
"I’m pretty sure everybody’s okay, they all went through shootaround and unless somebody comes up lame, I plan on playing everybody," Carlesimo said after shootaround at PNY Center. "They’ll definitely get a sweat, they haven’t played since Sunday (at the Toronto Raptors) and we still might not play until Sunday, so they’ll definitely get some good runs. Maybe they’ll start the first and start the third, we’ll see how long they go."
Again, tonight's game is meaningless, in terms of positional movement -- win or lose -- but Carlesimo does think it's important to have his starters get into a mid-week rhythm here before they start their playoff run this weekend.
