Doc Rivers has changed his rotations this week. Two players impacted have been Chris Wilcox and Jeff Green. Wilcox registered a DNP last night as Doc gave Jason Collins the starting center role. Doc seems to have listened to me and has started using Green almost exclusively as the backup small forward the past two games. For one reason or another Green can not defend 4's and is a putrid rebounder. He could very well become a good small forward, but the Celtics already have a star there.
Wilcox had the following to say after his DNP:
"We went with JC tonight," Wilcox said of Collins. "JC, he had a great game. Sully, B. Bass did too. We won, so he (Doc Rivers) doesn't have to say anything to me."
Professional and team first on Wilcox's part. I like it. Now I couldn't find quotes from Green after the game and I'm sure he was happy for his teammates, but the reduced playing time might be getting to him as witnessed by the following tweet he post after the game:
