Stan Van Gundy Continues to Tinker with Magic Rotation

Much like in the preseason, Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy has continued to tweak his rotation from game-to-game during the regular season.

The Breakdown
Van Gundy has been unable to settle on his fifth starter and has tried both Quentin Richardson and Ryan Anderson. He's also fluctuated minutes for bench players such as J.J. Reddick, Mickael Pietrus, and Brandon Bass. Anderson has even gone from starter to DNP.

At this point, the only sure plays are starters Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, Vince Carter, and Rashard Lewis. It's hard to justify holding onto anyone else in standard leagues due to the uncertainty of their playing time on a nightly basis. In deeper leagues, you may want to hold onto the other Magic players if nothing better is available in free agency. You'll just have to be patient when they're riding the bench and you'll have to make sure you're starting them when their in Van Gundy's good graces and getting minutes.
