    • Ian: Toughie here! I've had RJ ever since Westy went down and also after he returned. I just dropped him after last game for M.Barnes. I know Barnes could turn on me any day but I'm riding him with 4 games week 20 or until he becomes a screwup. I dropped RJ because since Westy's return his minutes were good until Butler appeared. They've gone done every game since. You probably know that also. Another thing to consider here for ROS(and another reason I dropped) is the BIG 3 are back in business again,healthy!!!! That means from here on everyone else is a bit player. History says so here. With Butler at that #2 spot he'll get some run. RJ will see good PT backing up Butler and Westy but I'm not sure he'll reach that 30 min/game he needs. I looked at it as he'll be having some very inconsistent play now depending on game situations. Before he was seeing pT in any situation until Westy came back. Even before Westy was hurt he was seeing good PT. I was hoping he'd fill that role again now but it seems he won't. Could change,of course. You never know. But I think RJ is going to have a hard time re-adjusting to the old role again. You sort of see it now,right. If you really need Butler's offense(that's who he is) I'd go with him. If a little bit of everything(Great FT%,some steals,a few RB's) I'd stay with RJ.
