Fab Melo in, Jared Sullinger possibly out

Nick Laham

Last season's first rounders trade spots as Sullinger will probably be in street clothes tonight with Melo suiting up for the C's.

We're still a good seven hours away from tip off, but it looks like Sullinger's back spasms are going to keep him out against Orlando. With Glen Davis out for 8-12 with a broken foot anyway, I guess I'll have to wait until next season for that wrestling match.

On a selfish note, I really hope Melo gets some run tonight. The Magic have lost their last four road games by an average of twenty points and lost Big Baby for the rest of the season. Arron Afflalo was also a no-show at shootaround and probably out. In a perfect world, Gino makes an early appearance, KG plays less than 25 minutes, Wilcox gets over 20 as he works himself back into shape, Jason Collins fouling out before the half, and then we get some Fab. I say I selfishly want him to play because as a writer at CelticsBlog, I'm really getting tired of using his prom picture from Media Day in these Melo posts. One rebound, one bucket, one block, and the SBNation cameras to get them. That's all I'm asking for.
