Roy Hibbert?

Anyone out there know what the deal is with Roy Hibbert's minutes declining? He has looked good this season and now O'Brien seems to have lost faith in him.

If O'Brien is smart...

If he has any clue as to what he's doing Hibbert will get big minutes against the Warriors and he should play well if the Pacers dictate the pace of things. Hopefully he won't try to outrun them...

I heard that Coach O'Brian

I heard that Coach O'Brian let Hibbert play depends on the matchups...But Hibbert is 1 of those players that plays better as the game goes on..So they shouldn't be cutting down his minutes...They should be giving him more

His minutes

have gone down since Jeff Foster returned from his injury. He wont start, and probably wont play much against the Warriors and other up-and-down teams.

The word around here is it's

The word around here is it's because of matchups. However, I just think O'Brien is an idiot. He's just another Larry Bird "yes man".

Hibbert should be playing

Hibbert should be playing big minutes...that makes no sense to me does he really think Foster is the answer short term or long term

Foster is long and athletic,

Foster is long and athletic, but his very limited offensively and on the downswing of his career. I understand matchups, but when you have a good young center who is making major strides you don't want to limit his development, in favor of an inferioir, but more experienced player. Indiana has also lost a majority of the games Hibbert has played under 20 minutes.
