Quick player update before our road game in Canton Friday night.
The Mad Ants have waived Chris Hunter due to injury. This means we retain his rights and he can return to the roster once healthy. It sounds like Chris can be out anywhere from 3 to 4 weeks.
To fill the roster spot the Mad Ants have traded our 2nd round 2012 draft pick to the Iowa Energy for Jerrid Famous. Famous is a 6'11 big man was a last cut from the Pacer's preseason camp. He was putting up some monster numbers before the NBA lockout ended, and should fill in at center very nicely for us. He has already joined the team in Canton and should play Friday night.
I will be attending the game and will be doing a tweet by tweet from @themadants twitter account. Make sure to check it out on NBA Futurecast.

Another tough loss in Reno on Wednesday night... the team made several runs but could never get over the hump to overtake the lead. You can check out the recap/box score here.
See everyone back home at the Coliseum for a 7:30 tip off on Saturday night as Canton will make the drive over for a rematch of Friday's game. Remember the Bucks mascot Bango will be in action, along with the Bucks Dunk team. Should be a great game and great entertainment so bring the family out!
