Minutes for MarShon? We'll see

The Nets are 3-0 since P.J. Carlesimo shortened the rotation, benching Kris Humphries for Mirza Teletovic. On Sunday, in fact, Carlesimo shortened the rotation even further, dropping MarShon Brooks. is that a permanent thing. Nope, said the coach on Monday. It was about match-ups vs. Atlanta and the match-ups vs. Philadelphia are more likely to permit a return to action.

"It's just a question of what the matchups are like, Carlesimo told beat writers in Philly. "I think tonight will be different. It'll depend on who they start, too, but tonight it'll probably be different."

No guarantees, of course. Just like there were no guarantees that Brook Lopez and Andray Blatche would play together ... and they haven't yet. Carlesimo emphasized again that he will be reviewing the rotation, explaining, "It's really less right now the rotation than it is getting Mirza [Teletovic] playing time and looking at Mirza."

In the three games, Teletovic has played 58 minutes, shooting 3-of-15 overall, 3-of-9 from deep. He's grabbed 13 rebounds and handed out four assists, turning the ball over twice. The Nets are hopeful they can rest Joe Johnson some to help him heal his heel. He's looked off the two of the three games.
