I don't know why you believe this. 1)Kuester has not shown an inkling that he has learned anything from last year. 2)Kuester would have never let JJ play except for a massive amount of injuries. And even after JJ showed a lot in many, many games, Kuester was ready to throw JJ under the bus as soon as CV came back off injury. The only thing that kept JJ in the rotation was CV's very unsuccessful return from injury. (Talking about Kuester's attempt, as soon as Tay started playing, to ice JJ for the rest of the season. CV's PF is the only thing that kept JJ in the rotation. Please note, that despite JJ doing a pretty good job at small forward in Tay's absence, he saw absolutely no time at small forward after Tay returned. Kuester was going to just stick his head in the sand on it, and pretend he never heard of JJ) I believe that if eveyone was healthy all this preseason, Daye would be playing 3rd string to CV and JJ. He would show promise in his occasional minutes. But just like last season, Daye would not play. And Monroe, who knows just how little we would have seen of him if CV, and later JMAX, did not have their injuries in the preseason. With all that said, at this point, Kuester has not announced that he is shortening up his rotation at this point. We should not hear words like that until March. Just keep hoping with me. No way this team is sorted out yet. Lots of players need lots of tryouts in various combinations before Kuester can know which way is the best way to go with this roster. That includes TMAC, who, if healthy, would be taking every backup minute to Tay that Rip was not already hogging. Daye would have just been lost in the shuffle, by an incompetent coach who can't learn.
