Billy Hamilton is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Sunday.
It's just a routine day of rest for Hamilton as the Res will use Kristopher Negron in the leadoff spot and Chris Heisey in center field against Marlins lefty Brad Hand. Hamilton will be available for pinch-hitting/running duties if necessary.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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
