Poor Adelman!!! What the heck is he supposed to do for a rotation now? Just plugging the holes so that you have at least two guys in each slot in order of talent leaves you with this:
PG - Ridnour, Conroy
SG - Schved, Lee
SF - Kirilenko, DWill
PF - Cunningham, Amundson
C - Pekovic, Stiemsma
This is all we've got right now!
Could that second unit even score 10 points a quarter? I'm guessing he's going to have to adjust this to make the groups workable - maybe start Lee to keep some scoring in the second unit with Schved? Also, I suppose he is going to keep DWill starting at the 4, but take him out early and use him to spell AK, giving DC more total minutes. My guess for tomorrow's starting line-up + 2nd string is the following:
PG - Ridnour (35), Schved (8), Conroy (5)
SG - Lee (26), Schved (22)
SF - Kirilenko (35), [Dwill (13)]
PF - DWill (18), DC (30)
C - Pekovic (33), Steimsma (15)
Just a guess - what do others think? Not, what you think SHOULD be done, but what RA WILL do tomorrow?
Personally, I'd rather see a tighter 8 man rotation with more DC and Schved rather than a 10 man rotation. Obviously, a lot of this will depend on game conditions, whether the win or loss margin is large, etc. I wouldn't want to be RA tomorrow night, but just think what other teams would look like with this kind of injury situation - imagine OKC last year without Westbrook (Rubio), Durant (Love), Harden (Chase), Fisher(JJ) and Sefolosha (Roy). We are out 3 starters, a 6th man and I suppose about a 9th man. Where would other teams be without 4 of their top six? Do this to the Lakers, OKC, NYK, or Heat and imagine those teams! Even with our present injuries, we end up being able to send out a respectable squad. This is a deep team!
