Sergey Karasev went from playing no minutes in the beginning of the season, to starting for a period of time and then back to not playing at all. Karasev showed promise when given minutes, but as soon as he went into a slump, coach Hollins pulled him out of the rotation and gave his minutes back to Bojan Bogdanovic. Karasev is only 21 years old, so the time for him to develop is still present, so him not getting too many minutes is sort of expected at this point.
