Willy Hernangomez played only 11 minutes off the bench and scored 12 points with two steals and a rebound in Tuesday’s loss to the Celtics.
Jeff Hornacek was known for frequently tinkering with big man rotations last season, and that trend has continued so far this year – decidedly not in the favor of Hernangomez. While not quite what owners are looking for, this is a step in the right direction as he played only three garbage time minutes in the season opener, and was a DNP last game. Owners should remain patient and hold him for the time being in hopes of the pendulum swinging back his way eventually.
