The addition of Marquise Danielswas definitely a successful one, with him being able to play 20.4 minutes a game and putting up 5.7 points per game. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola) Allen has played one game so far this season and should split time with Eddie House, depending on who needs a blow. We can surely expect to see Pierce and Ray Allen have fairly ramped up minutes due to this which could be a serious issue.But as usual, never underestimate the power of Brian Scalabrine! Scal has averaged 7.6 minutes with 1.6 points per game, but damn did he look good doing it! It really says something for our fan base when we back Scal until death but Tony Allen could walk into the sunset and we wouldn't even watch him go.Of course, you can't mention the bench without talking about Rasheed Wallace 'Sheed has been strangely inconsistent so far this season. He is averaging 20.6 minutes, 9.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 143 curse words per game. 'Sheed has kept his pace in the technical foul world as well.
Every 16 technical fouls gives a player a little "no-no suspension" and well, lets say that 'Sheed is on pace to get his in February That's right, months before the end of the season. And every second technical after that is another suspension...Doc Rivers has been quoted as saying that he and the players are trying to do everything they can to calm Wallace down. The high point was in the game in Charlotte when he was screaming "THE BALL DON'T LIE" down the court when the Bobcats missed the free throw off of his tech.

Hopefully, Williams' time won't be affected too much when Glen Davis returns to the court, but then again, we will need to see which Big Baby shows up.Lester Hudson, J.R. Giddens, and Bill Walker(one game played since returning from arthroscopic knee surgery) are going to remain at the end of the bench, but all are great filler guys for those games that allow the starters and main bench players to sit extensively. Season PredictionI gave the C's a fighting (Irish) chance at a 70-12 record on the season, and here they are the quarter point with 4 losses.
For you statisticians out there, keeping this pace would give them 16 losses and a 66-16 record, right where they have been in the past two seasons.Reading those final lines in that preview about KG guaranteeing to Wyc Grousbeck that the C's would win the NBA Championship in 2010 and 2011 really gets you excited. So far, so good this season, as long as these little injuries don't hit them too hard in the long run Wouldn't we like to see this again!. It was a well heralded fact that Portland's future was bright. They're chances of advancing very far in the playoffs seem little, but can they even get they'reThey're starting to fall apart through injuries and those players who've been spared from injury are confused of they're role in the team. It has just been announced that Rudy Fernandez will miss 4-6 weeks after being treated for his back injury, which was first hurt against the Lakers late last season when Trevor Ariza fouled Rudy hard from behind. This led to Rudy being taken off in a stretcher.Injuries have become such a problem that a trade may become necessary, the problem with this is that all our trade bait is injured, leaving the only position were we have reasonable depth, point guard, the only realistic option to trade away one off. If this trade occurs who will it be for and who will it involve Here are the people who can not be available to trade and/or play:Andre Miller (Can't be traded until Dec.
