Is It Better to Bench Yi?

He hasn't played well since he came back from a broken pinkie. His confidence is sapped, but Lawrence Frank keeps starting him, then quickly putting him on the bench. Would it be better if Yi Jianlian plays with the second unit? Frank thinks not. Yi's teammates agree. Still, the question remains: is he starting because he deserves it or is he starting because the franchise wants him out there?
