Default Brezec To Start At Center


Brezec, not Okafor,will start at center


Charlotte Bobcats coach Sam Vincent is penciling in center Primoz Brezec as a starter.

Brezec missed roughly the first two weeks of training camp with a family issue, but the 7-footer played in both the weekend exhibitions, against the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns. Vincent hopes to use Emeka Okafor primarily at power forward, rather than center, this season.

By going with Brezec, Vincent avoids starting Walter Herrmann (which makes the Bobcats small) and Ryan Hollins (who's inexperienced). However, this is not a concrete decision. Vincent will continue to tinker with his rotation to compensate for losing Sean May and Adam Morrison for the season.

Morrison will go through at least three weeks of rehabilitation, to reduce the swelling in his left knee, before having surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament he tore Saturday night against the Lakers.

The Bobcats say doctors will be particularly patient reducing that swelling pre-surgery because Morrison is a diabetic and more susceptible to infection.

Vincent expects rookie Jared Dudley (sprained foot) to play in the final exhibition Friday night against the New Orleans Hornets in Winston-Salem. That assumes Dudley doesn't have any setbacks this week in practice. He hasn't played in any exhibitions, because of that injury.
