Taj Gibson stuck in the starting lineup on Wednesday and managed 10 points, four rebounds, a steal and a block in 28 minutes of work.
It was a four-game low in minutes for Gibson, who has routinely seen 30-plus mpg in non-garbage time games this year. Dario Saric might not overtake him for the starting job while Tom Thibodeau is calling the shots but there's now a pretty hard cap on his ceiling. You shouldn't cut bait on him and he's still a late-round asset, but you will need to temper your expectations going forward. Thibs did mention that he'll look at Gibson-at-the-5, which would be an avenue for him to maintain value by keeping his minutes up. We'll see what comes of it.
