    Default Rush's Minutes Will Be Sparse Upon Return

    Nov 02, 2010 8:18 AM EST
    Brandon Rush isn't expected to play significant minutes when he returns to the Pacers after serving a five-game suspension to begin the season.

    Rush's suspension has opened up time for rookie forward Paul George, who has served as the backup at shooting guard and small forward -- allowing starters Mike Dunleavy and Danny Granger to rest.

    "Brandon will be the second wing off the bench with a coach that only wants to play three wings," Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said.

    "There will be times where Brandon gets an opportunity. If Paul is not guarding and guys are going by him, I will sub Brandon in for him in a second. If Paul's turning the basketball over, I'll sub (for) him."

    His defense is needed at SG especially since Mike barely plays any and Paul is still learning.

    I think with Darren guiding the offense, Brandon will beneft and become a more consistent 3 point shooter. Darren said he's looking forward to playing with Brandon.

    I think what JOB is going to do is fine. We've been playing well.

    Maybe Brandon is more comfortable playing a backup role.
