Austin Daye and Charlie Villanueva haven’t done anything noteworthy to earn more playing time. Fortunately for them, circumstances seem to dictate that it’s time to shake up the rotation. At this point in the season, coach Lawrence Frank might as well give the disappointing duo a chance to play regular minutes.
