Minimizes impact to his knees and maintains the chemistry of the starting unit that is pretty much freaking amazing at this particular time.
The thought of Granger being our gun off the bench practically gives me a stiffy. What a b!tchslap that is for playoff opponents.
Frankly I think it is in Granger's best interest to embrace the 6th man role, if only for the remainder of this season. He risks damage to his reputation if he derails the train by coming back into a starter role. And, then, possibly demotion if its ugly. So why not preserve your rep and take the 6th man role, kill it and build up your trade value?
