Scooter Gennett is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Sunday.
With southpaw Gio Gonzalez on the hill for the Nationals, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is trying to get as many right-handed bats into his lineup as he can. Therefore, Rickie Weeks, who is batting .252 with three home runs and 16 RBI, will get the start.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Gennett will get the day off on Sunday with Rickie Weeks filling in at the keystone and batting second in the Brewers lineup. Like we saw in the first half, Gennett will make way for Weeks on occasion, but after being removed form Saturday's game due to a sore leg, this could become more regular over the next few days. The extent of the injury is unknown at this time, so consider him day-to-day for the time being. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Tim Duncan (rest) will not play Friday against Denver.
The Spurs will take advantage of the holiday and give Duncan an extra day of rest and get ready for Saturday against the Hawks. The Spurs could go with LaMarcus Aldridge at center for Friday and use David West at power forward or they could just give Boris Diaw the start. Either way, those are the three players likely to see the extra work in Duncan's absence. Analysis: Howard Bender
