Thats the weakness with current roster. If you need a big body on opponent SF, neither Demar, Ross nor Salmons quite cut it. In time teams will take note and start posting up our wings.
Maybe Fields needs to get out of doghouse from time to time?

Ross held his own against George. LeBron has a mismatch against everyone so you can't worry about him. It's not really a problem until it's a problem.

Definitely! Fields should be getting more PT. You would think that Fields is exactly type of player that Casey wants and would be playing, but I guess not..

I prefer not seeing Fields, or Novak in there. What I'm finding a breath of fresh air in terms of how the team is constructed right now, is that there are no specialists that need to balance each other out somehow and end up throwing all other roles out of whack as a result. Until Fields can get a fluid shooting motion, and Novak can fit in without the defense suffering too much, then they should just sit. The overall balance in personnel, where every guy on the court can handle everything needed on both ends of the court, has been missing since Bargnani was picked. To me that is about as valuable and as difficult to attain as getting the right "franchise player".

I rather would have Fields playing than Hayes and Vasquez needs all the help he can get on the defense so maybe he should sit too?

Novak has no future with us. He fits a different system. And his D is horrid at any position. I'm sure Masai will be shopping him along with Fields and Hayes.

As much as I like Fields LX is right.... until he gets his shot back there are just better options on the bench right now (who would've thought we could say that?).

Agreed for the most part.

Also, I love how coincidentally, those are the 2 worst contracts on the team, alongside Hayes.

Sorry but that injury really did a number on him. Next season we may see a supersub off the bench if MU plays his cards right with Salmons' contract in a deal.
