This happened with Turkoglu most recently when it took him until mid January in the infamous(post game interview with Jack) game vs the Knicks. Fields role is smaller so I'd expect him to pick it up alot sooner,but this just 4 games for a player who's new to the team and system.

Also people are forgetting he's has just 2 years of experience under his belt and encountering his third different coach and system within that same time span. He's still developing as a pro basketball player. At his best he was so good that the Knicks refused to part with him in the blockbuster trade with the Nuggets for Carmelo Anthony. Have a little patience,Casey and co. will find away for Fields to become more productive
They lost that deal so I'm not sure I trust how they evaluated their players. They should have kept Chandler or Gallo if possible!
