Alonzo Gee, C.J. Miles and rookie Dion Waiters are all in the running for starting at the 2 and 3. Anderson Varejao, Tristan Thompson and Kyrie Irving are considered surefire starters.
Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will see game action for the first time this preseason, though he will be limited to 12 minutes of play. Pacers starting point guard George Hill will not play, as he continues to deal with a hip pointer.
