MILWAUKEE: GUARDS: BRANDON KNIGHT slides into Brandon Jennings' point guard slot, but he's a much different player. Knight hasn't proven capable of running the point, and may eventually settle in as an undersized shooter . . . O.J. MAYO will be the focal point of this offense. He should build on his career-best year in Dallas . . . GARY NEAL will give them some instant offense as a sixth man . . . LUKE RIDNOUR provides Knight insurance, and the ability to play either guard spot. He should fit nicely alongside Mayo for stretches . . . KHRIS MIDDLETON could crack the rotation as a capable defender with upside as a shooter . . . Second-rounder NATE WOLTERS must knock down jumpers if he's going to get off the bench. FORWARDS: ERSAN ILYASOVA will once again have to earn his starter's minutes, as the Bucks have loaded up on quality frontcourt depth. He provides more offense than anyone else on the front line . . . CARON BUTLER should start at small forward for this team after freeing himself before ever having to play in Phoenix . . . CARLOS DELFINO will play a key role scoring off the bench. He's a streaky long-range gunner, but defends well enough to stay on the court . . . JOHN HENSON is on the verge of a breakout as an elite rebounder and shot-blocker. He's still a bit behind offensively, which could hold him back in a crowded post rotation . . . GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO was the most intriguing project in a weak draft, but the teenager is nowhere near ready for NBA action. He'll likely see time in the D-League until the second half of the season. CENTERS: We've loved LARRY SANDERS for years, and last year showed why. He's a Defensive POY candidate with a budding offensive game . . . ZAZA PACHULIA reunites with head coach Larry Drew as muscle off the bench . . . EKPE UDOH is likely on the outside looking in for this rotation.
GOLDEN STATE: GUARDS: STEPHEN CURRY is not only the NBA's best shooter, but he has also become a great passer. Durability is the only question about him now . . . KLAY THOMPSON should take advantage of the many open looks he'll get playing alongside Curry and Andre Iguodala . . . The Warriors lost Jarrett Jack and brought in TONEY DOUGLAS. While Douglas got his career on track in Houston last year, he'll strictly be a second-unit guy as Iguodala erases the need for a second point guard . . . NEMANJA NEDOVIC is looking at a redshirt year, especially after an injury-filled summer. The Serbian combo guard should overtake Douglas eventually . . . There are few things in the world better than KENT BAZEMORE celebrating a Curry three. FORWARDS: ANDRE IGUODALA is a perfect fit in Oakland, where he can play point forward and set up the Warriors' many shooters. He's also a crafty cutter who should do some sweet things alongside Stephen Curry . . . DAVID LEE draws attention away from their shooters, which ensures him a significant role. But he kills this team with his awful defense . . . HARRISON BARNES may come off the bench more often, but the Warriors will frequently go small with Barnes stretching to the four, especially after Barnes' impressive postseason showing . . . MARREESE SPEIGHTS steps into Carl Landry's role as a low-post scorer off the bench . . . DRAYMOND GREEN had some trouble as a rookie. He'll have to play his way into this rotation. CENTERS:ANDREW BOGUT is injury-prone and will continue to be an afterthought on offense. They'll have to rest him often during the regular season . . . Between Bogut and JERMAINE O'NEAL, they're hoping at least one of them will be healthy at all times to protect the rim . . . FESTUS EZELI had major knee surgery and is unlikely to return in time for the Feats of Strength or the Airing of Grievances.

*Bucks-Warriors Preview* ========================

Milwaukee (13-55) at Golden State (43-26), 10:30 p.m. EDT

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson has been joking about "getting my Pop on" every time he sits a key player with a nagging injury the past couple of weeks.

The reference is to San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich, who has famously - and often successfully - rested his regulars at times during the NBA's marathon season. After the Warriors wore down in the second round of the playoffs against the Spurs last year, Jackson isn't taking any chances.

The third-year coach is trying to give his banged-up players breaks during the stretch run in hopes of getting healthier for the most important games of the year. The strategy is one the Warriors (43-26) have rarely had the luxury to consider, and Jackson knows some fans could criticize him if it backfires.

"If Pop rests guys and they lose, it's Pop. If I rest guys and I lose, I'm on the hot seat," Jackson said, chuckling. "So I don't think it's the same thing."

Some injuries are more pressing than others.

Starting swingman Andre Iguodala missed Tuesday night's win over Orlando because of tendinitis in his right knee, the first of at least three straight games he is expected to miss. He has been shut down from all basketball activity.

Center Andrew Bogut sat out against the Magic with inflammation in his surgically repaired left ankle, and backup Jermaine O'Neal got the night off to rest. Both big men participated in Wednesday's light practice.

While Bogut and O'Neal could return for Thursday night's home game against the Milwaukee Bucks (13-55) or Saturday's showdown with San Antonio, an oddity in the schedule gives Jackson the option to prolong their rest. The Warriors have five days off between hosting the Spurs and a visit by Memphis on March 28.

"It's crazy, because we probably looked at the schedule when it was handed out and said, `Why in the world would we have a five-day break at the end of the year?"' Jackson said. "Then you look now and you say, `It's much-needed.' We're a no-excuse team, but we've got guys who have been beaten up.

"We've been trying to mix and match, create lineups, play guys extended minutes, go longer with different groups. There's a method to the madness, and now I think it's important for us to do whatever we can to continue to win and get to that extended break where we can recover."

At this point, playoff seeding is no longer paramount.

The Warriors are in sixth place in the jammed Western Conference and believe no matter where they finish - so long as they finish in one of the eight playoff seeds - the road to the NBA Finals will be just as difficult. They're 12-4 since the All-Star break and would have to completely collapse over the final 13 games to miss the playoffs, regardless of who's on the floor.

"You always teach that no-excuse, next-man-up mentality," guard Stephen Curry said.

The Warriors showed just how dangerous they could be in the postseason when they were healthy last year. They finished 47-35 to earn the conference's sixth seed and upset Denver in the opening round before losing in six games to San Antonio, which was eliminated by Miami in the finals.

Curry and Bogut battled ankle injuries throughout the playoffs, often needing to take anti-inflammatory injections just to play. David Lee missed time with a torn right hip flexor and was limited when he returned. And backup center Festus Ezeli played through a right knee injury that required surgery, which has sidelined him all of this season, though the team is hoping he can come back soon.

"It'd be nice to be in a scenario," Lee said, "that we can get a spot somewhat secured so coach can use his discretion the final couple games."

The Bucks have no such concerns with the NBA's worst record.

Milwaukee opened a four-game trip with its fifth straight loss Tuesday, 120-115 in overtime to Portland. The Bucks have dropped six in a row on the road, where they're 5-28, and are 2-24 overall against West teams.

"The guys played really hard for four quarters, even in overtime," coach Larry Drew said. "I thought we did some really good things. I told them after the game I was really proud of their effort."

Golden State won 101-80 in Milwaukee on Jan. 7 for just its second victory in the last nine meetings.
