MILWAUKEE (AP) -Yi Jianlian will be in Milwaukee's starting lineup when the Bucks open the season in Orlando on Wednesday night.
The lineup unveiled Monday by coach Larry Krystkowiak includes the 6-foot-11 power forward from China.
Also getting a starting nod is veteran forward Desmond Mason, who signed as a free agent in the offseason to rejoin his former team.
Other starters are guards Mo Williams and Michael Redd and center Andrew Bogut.
With that starting lineup, Charlie Villanueva will be coming off the bench at power forward and Bobby Simmons at small forward.
