Both players are listed as questionable and will probably sit out tonight against the Rockets.
Not having Kenyon in the lineup is killing Denver. His defense is greatly missed and the attitude he brings night in and night out when he's on the floor. His shot selection is very questionable at times and since his back has been acting up it has really hindered all areas of his game, but his jumper has been especially flat when he has been trying to play through his current injury.
AC being out doesn't bother me at all. But it is up to JR and Billups to make up for his 4.5 assists per game and when they do not do that (see Jazz ... see Kings) then Denver will not win games. JR accounted for 0 assists in 27 minutes last night. The last time he didn't record at least 1 assist in a game was on January 1st against the Thunder.
Billups hasn't recorded double-digit assists since January 19th ... when he recorded 12 against who else? The Houston Rockets.
It is often quite fun to watch AC come down court and push the pace and you get to wonder, "Where is this pass going to end up?" Wait ... that is the opposite of fun.
