    An observation about our bench..

    Just watching tonight's game and sitting here laughing at how Kirk gets ejected, taj gets hurt and we look like we have no bench.

    For starters, we have no body sitting on the black chairs to come in and give our starters a rest. I mean honestly I looked and had to rewind and see it again. We have our 5 starters and then Kirk and taj and cook. We lost both of kirk and taj tonight and the bench consisted of rad, Teague, and I have no idea who else.

    No rose, no rip, no Marco, no Noah, no taj, no Kirk... How does our front office expect to keep this up. I get it, you can't expect injuries, but I feel like we need to atleast put some bodies on our bench. Some guys that can play in the NBA. I mean is there not a d-league we can go grab a guy or two off of.

    Maybe too long to discuss, just wanted to see what you guys had to say about our lack of bench players, literally not having any depth, and is there even space on our roster to sign a guy or 2?

    Well the bench is empty because everyone is hurt (and Kirk ejected).

    Luol Deng
    Carlos Boozer
    Jimmy Butler
    Nate Robinson
    Nazr Mohammed
    Daequan Cook
    Vlad Radmanavic
    Marquis Teague
    Malcolm Thomas

    Were all still available for the game. Kirk will be back since it was just an ejection. Marco and Jo are looking to play again this week. Who knows on Taj, Rose, Rip.


    And no, we have no space. Our roster is at 15 now.

    I'd still give Thomas and Radmanovic some minutes, however small, especially with what's happening lately.

    Since being signed to the team and being part of the bench, I guess. They're benchwarmers, I'm not sure what you expect from the 13th, 14th, and 15th men on the roster. In normal circumstances these guys don't see the floor. No team has a bench full of starting caliber players.

    at this point with the playoffs secure and with injuries we have i say play them.
    No point in getting Boozer, Nate, Deng, Jimmy, NAZR heavy minutes. Focuse on staying healthy!

    Vladimir Radmanovic, Marquis Teague, and Malcolm Thomas can't contribute 4 minutes a piece to give some guys time to catch their breath?
