Robin Lopez may have finished with just six points on Monday but provided some versatility with five rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in a win over the Magic.
Lopez saw just 26 minutes tonight and despite the well-rounded output it certainly seems like he’s being phased out in Chicago. Coach Hoiberg acknowledged that the team needs to get more minutes for its younger players down the stretch and RoLo is one of the few easy veteran targets for a reduction in playing time. He’s also been outside the top-200 in the last month, so standard league players shouldn’t be affected by tonight’s line or his recent play one way or the other.
