DONUT 5: Willie Cauley-Stein Whereabouts

The last time Willie Cauley-Stein saw the floor for the Dallas Mavericks was on February 12, for about four minutes. The game before that, he played five minutes. The game before that one he logged 25 minutes, went 7-of-7 from the floor, had 10 rebounds, an assist, and two blocks. Since then heís had a nearly two-week sabbatical sandwiched between two DNP-CDs (Did Not Play, Coachís Decision).

It turns out that Cauley-Stein was away from the team because of a death in the familyóso it may not be a repeat of the Nerlens Noel situation. Still, itís weird that Cauley-Stein didnít play against Chicago Monday night. Yeah, I know he hasnít had practice time ... but he hadnít practiced much before suiting up when he got to town either.

If heís not in Rickís doghouse (yes, we know the coach hates that word), itís strange for Carlisle to leave an athletic big man on the bench on a night when his team is decimated by injuries and short on interior depth.
Nerlens Noel played every night he was available the year he became a Maverick. They offered him a big contract and he declined it. If WCS is a repeat of the NN situation, it means the Mavs are all in on him as the starting center. It wonít be a repeat of that, though. Because Porzingis is the starting center.
