Marquese Chriss played just 16 minutes on Thursday, finishing with two points, three rebounds and three personal fouls.
Chriss showed tons of upside down the stretch last year and that ferocious shot blocker is still in there somewhere. The problem is it just looks like Chriss will be unable to get enough minutes to build any forward momentum. It’s a major chicken and egg problem, as his poor play hasn’t exactly convinced anyone that he deserves more run, but he can’t really put good work in if he’s playing so sporadically. As of right now, Chriss is just a luxury stash. Perhaps things will clear up for him after the All Star break.
