Dentmon taking charge

A few of us had a chance to talk with Lorenzo Romar before practice today.
No real big news came out of it, but he did say that Justin Dentmon is having a good start to his season and has all but nailed down a starting job. If you remember, Romar said two weeks ago only Jon Brockman was assured a starting spot.
Now, 40 percent of the lineup seems set — which could have been predicted — though Romar says the rest is wide open. Hard to figure Spencer Hawes won’t emerge as a starter, though.
Romar again praised the hard work of Phil Nelson, saying he didn’t always consistently bring it in high school, but is now. Word is Nelson has been the biggest surprise among the new players, and is competing for real playing time.
Romar said the health of the rest of the players is good, saying formerly injured players such as Hans Gasser and Brandon Burmeister are practicing without restrictions.
