Pistons’ Smith, Drummond, Monroe Won’t Start Together?

Vincent Goodwill: Have you internally made the decision that someone of those three (Josh Smith, Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe) has to come off the bench? Or have you decided they can’t play together in stretches?

Stan Van Gundy:  I think the second would be closer. I think there are situations where we’ll play bigger and play them together.

Vincent Goodwill:  Sometimes it worked last year.

Stan Van Gundy: I was gonna say that. What I don’t think will happen is it’ll be our primary lineup. I’ll go into camp, probably, I think I’m pretty open-minded but this will be the most open-minded I’ve ever been in coaching. I think if you look at the positions … people who watched us all the time, fans, media, coaches, whatever — if I gave 15 people and (asked) who would start, I might get 15 different lineups.

Maybe what emerges is those three guys start at 3-4-5. I don’t anticipate that would be the case but even if they do, that won’t be the lineup that gets the most minutes. It can be effective against some teams and some lineups.

LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
