Carlos Delfino would have been the starter at small forward, but he'll serve a one-game suspension for a fight during an exhibition game against Detroit Oct. 7. Mbah a Moute said he was still having trouble with his footwork at practice Wednesday but he'll give it another try today.

Mbah a Moute played in all 82 games a year ago during his rookie season, and he started 52 of them.

He bruised the knee last Sunday, when he bumped up against teammate Francisco Elson at practice.
