CJM has become the invisible man in Portland. Last 6 games he has played a combined 5 minutes, with 3 DNP’s. Not looking good. There must be something Stotts doesn’t like about his game, as he has continued to lose minutes. I read an article on a Blazers blog and they said it was due to two reasons, first, his defensive play, and second, his inability to finish off the dribble at the rim. As Portland shortens up its’ playoff rotation, CJM is not in it.
Muscala has become much more of a factor since his return to the Hawks.
