Both have been splitting time at center 50-50 recently which explains Whiteside’s recent minutes reduction. Over the course of the year they have only been on the court together for 36 total minutes and just one total minute over the last 10 games. With Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) possibly out for Wednesday’s game, coach Spo may have no choice but to play them alongside one another. “A lot of time Kelly is going to play 20, 25 minutes and James Johnson will play whatever minutes he plays. so it’s going to force me to possibly think a little bit different with this team to see how to get both those guys more minutes and eventually more minutes together.” More minutes together would be great for both their values and could vault Adebayo into pick up territory. He could be worth a stash in 14-team leagues to see if coach Spo follows through.
