In the four games he’s played, Motiejuans has averaged just 4.6 minutes. “It has been,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said if it’s been difficult to get minutes for Motiejuans. “When you have another guy like DeMarcus (Cousins), when he’s not in foul trouble he will play 32 minutes a game that’s a big chunk of minutes. You have to play Dante (Cunningham) depending on when teams go small at that position.It’s been a little tricky. It’s not like we don’t like him, we like him as a player, sometimes it’s hard to get people in you like to see in the game.”
