Wright set to start

Rookie forward Brandan Wright is set to start tonight, along with Stephen Jackson, who’s back from his sprained ankle. This won’t be Wright’s first career NBA start — that came against New Orleans on Jan. 4 — but after that game, Wright sat out 15 of the next 21 contests at Don Nelson’s behest.

This, on the other hand, has the vibe of being the debut of something big. We’ll see in about 3 hours.

    hi geofff. he played well last night. imagine the length they’d have in the front court when biedrins gets back (including jackson). i think that could compensate enough for lacking muscle inside. wright and biedrins could very well out jump other interior players for rebounds.
