I actually agree with the Mavericks' policy of resting players on B2Bs (KP in particular), especially given that they are not in a position to contend for a championship.

After Durant's ruptured Achilles I think teams may have a different awareness, and are taking a longer-term view of injury recovery, in particular with what seems to be an inordinate amount of B2Bs in a COVID-compressed season.

As for the Nets "holding out" Durant, Harden, Griffin, and Aldridge:

1) Harden is 31 years old, overweight, and dealing with a pulled hamstring; he's injured, not just being held out.

2) Durant is 32 years old, and is coming of a missed season due to the ruptured Achilles, PLUS rehabbing back into game shape through COVID.

3) Griffiin is 32 years old, and experiencing ongoing issues with the knee on which he had a surgical procedure, and has alsp been rehabbing and getting into game shape through COVID.

4) Aldridge just retired with a heart issue.

None of these cases is really a comparable issue to resting otherwise healthy players.
