With Johnson out 2 weeks minimum, look for Flip to have won pretty much. Even before the injury to Johnson, Saunders announced that Mohammed would be given major minutes to start the season. Remember, Dyess is starting, without even needing to win the position from anyone. Mohammed now will be the first big off the bench, with Flip already planning to have Mohammed playing 24 minutes a game in some early games. All this leaves precious little time for JMAX and Amir. Further, Saunders pretty much announced we will not get to see Amir and JMAX in the same game, pretty much never. Says they don't rebound well enough on the defensive end. To complete the thought, Flip Murray, a guy who does not even know the game, is being highly touted as being in great shape and pushing to get into the rotation. Basically, Flip now has eliminated all but Stuckey, amongst the young guys, from any significant playing time early in the season. (and even Hayes, a young guy himself, will get precious little time as Saunders strives to run Tay into dust.) As Joe Dumars stands by and allows it.
