If Kidd-Gilchrist is unavailable, Clifford could move Marvin Williams from power forward to small forward, and start Frank Kaminsky at power forward. However, Clifford said Sunday he could also start Jeremy Lamb, back from a groin injury, at small forward and rookie Dwayne Bacon at shooting guard.
But the players see the reasoning in this, even an 11-season veteran like Williams, who is used to being up most of the night on in-season flights. “It’s everything to get a good night’s rest,” Williams said. “Cliff is a big proponent of keeping guys rested. We might not practice as much as some teams to save our bodies” for games. “There is a huge difference between going to bed at 12 (midnight) and 4 in the morning. There are four or five us who stay up on a plane ride no matter how late it is. You might get into a city at 3 a.m., and then your body doesn’t really shut down until 5 a.m. “It’s tough when you have to play the next night.”
“I can’t say enough about how much this team needs Nic Batum,” power forward Marvin Williams said Thursday after practice. “Not only offensively what he brings to the table for himself and the rest of us, but defensively as well. He’s such a smart player, such a great player, on both ends of the floor. When you (lose) a guy like that, who does so many things, the team does struggle a little bit in his absence. If he’s back out there, it will make a huge difference.”
