Joseph and Smith Fit For Tonight

According to Frank Dell'Apa in the Boston Globe, Kenny Smith and Shalrie Joseph should be ready for action in the home opener tonight.

This is fantastic news for the team and it's fans. The first choice duo will be replacing rookies Wells Thompson and Gary Flood in the lineup. Thompson could be used on the right side as a substitute for captain Stevie Ralston, who doesn't figure to have a lot of 90 minute games this season with his aging legs.

Noonan will also be starting over rookie Adam Cristman. Cristman had a great preseason, but a quiet debut last week in Chicago. He may also come off the bench at some point in the game.

Once again, great news and I can't wait for tonight.
