Well, I didn't see this one coming. Tyronn Lue has stated publicly that Dwyane Wade will start in place of Tristan Thompson (instead of JR Smith) with Kevin Love and Lebron James sliding down a position in the line-up.

PG Isaiah Thomas (eventually, but D Rose for now)
SG JR Smith
SF Dwyane Wade
PF Lebron James
C Kevin Love

They are just making the commitment to go small from the opening tip. That will definitely help with spacing, but is this team going to get killed on the boards?

I guess until Isaiah returns, the rotation will likely be:

PG D Rose/Jose Calderon
SG JR Smith/Kyle Korver
SF Dwyane Wade/Jae Crowder
PF Lebron James/Jeff Green
C Kevin Love/Tristan Thompson

...which leaves RJ, Shumpert, Frye, Perkins, and Zizic buried on the deep bench even without Isaiah. This team just has too much depth for its own good.
