Yeah there definitely will be a different dynamic with him on the court. Not saying we would have won for sure without him, but the way we were playing prior was much different. You have to account for him not only in the stat sheet but also on the court chemistry. Just don't want to see him moping around.
That being said, I think he should come off the bench, not because we've been playing better without him but because he gels much better with that second unit. He can take over the ball handling duties and be a playmaker.
