Nate McMillan Plans to Use Rudy Fernandez Off the Bench

Blazers coach Nate McMillan told The Oregonian that he intends to use Rudy Fernandez as a rotation player off the bench.

The Breakdown
Rostering Fernandez this season seems like a big risk for fantasy owners. He told McMillan that he wants to return to Europe. The Blazers aren't letting him out of his contract, so he'll be forced to suit up for Portland this season. But Fernandez's displeasure could turn into a lack of effort on the court. Stay away from him in standard leagues. Deep leaguers should consider taking a gamble on him late as it could pay off if Fernandez puts his feelings aside and gives his full effort.
