TIMBERWOLVES roster usage by minutes - How will it play out?


I'd love to hear how CHers think that Adelman will allocate minutes once Rubio is completely healthy and the season is in full swing. I'm attaching a chart as a discussion starter. I'm most interested in seeing what people think will happen at the SG position. The one thing that making this chart made clear is that we have too many talented players for the minutes played. I didn't even include JJ or Malcolm, because while they'll get minutes, I'm guessing they won't be in large quantities. Maybe I'm overestimating Luke and Chase, but I think Adelman likes having those guys out there, so I think they'll be the #6 & 7. As others have pointed out, Adelman likes a tight rotation number of about 8, so some of these 11 might not even get the minutes listed. Discuss away!
