These are likely the players who will not be in the lineup on opening night. Notably absent is K’Andre Miller, who has had an exceptional camp. It looks like we are getting these lines on opening night:
The big “surprise” is Miller making the club outright. That’s big for the Rangers, who needed a lot to go right for them to be a contender this year. This is one step, and it’s a big first step. Left defense doesn’t look so bad anymore. Or at least not as bad as it could have been.
For a Rangers opening lineup, this looks as good as it could have realistically been.
