Spoelstra: Too Early to Rest Players
(Miami coach Erik) Spoelstra said he had no plans to rest players the second half of the season because it’s too early to even think about it. The decision to sit players at various times last year was an effort to give them breaks during the lockout-shortened season.
“I’m not even going to get into that,” Spoelstra said after Tuesday’s practice. “That bugs the heck out of me. We’re not going to start talking about maintenance right now. That’s a this-generation-of-media obsession of when do you start sitting guys. We have 32 games left. That’s absurd.”
