The Cavs are shooting for their franchise-record 33rd sellout of the season on Wednesday against the Detroit Pistons. It will be Fan Appreciation Night, as almost a million dollars in prizes will be given away.

Fans might want to attend to try to win a free Kia.

But they won't be real excited when they get there and they find out LeBron James probably won't play. Don't be surprised if Coach Mike Brown also sits Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Ben Wallace.

Fans might get their first extended look at Lance Allred, who might play a lot.

There will also be a change in the starting lineup at shooting guard. Sasha Pavlovic will probably be out for the rest of the year. He was taken out of the arena in a wheelchair.

The most logical choice would be to insert Devin Brown back as the starter. His other option would be to stick Wally Szczerbiak in there at the "2." Wally didn't play a second in the Philadelphia game on Monday.

I talked to Sasha at length before the game about being in and out of the lineup. He had no idea he was going to start on Monday. None of the players have any idea of playing time. Coach Mike Brown said only LeBron James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas are a lock to be in the starting lineup.
