Tokito: Blazers Coach Terry Stotts Stays Mum On Rotation's "Tough Decisions"

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts is keeping things close to the vest when it comes to his rotation.

Mike Tokito of The Oregonian reports that Portland Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts -- who hasn't had his entire starting five together for a single preseason game -- isn't tipping his hand when it comes to the bottom-half of his rotation. Everyone, according to the coach, has impressed.

"I think it's a slight concern," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "I would like to have our five guys out there. I would have liked to have had a couple games where those guys played some minutes together. Not only those guys, but to have our rotating players in with different lineups."

...

"I think Joel Freeland has played very well, [Thomas Robinson] has played well," Stotts said. "It's good to have Dorell [Wright] out on the court, Will Barton has played well, [Allen] Crabbe was playing well until he got sick. I think we've had a lot of players do well in preseason. I will have tough decisions to make when the regular season comes."

The good news for Stotts is that Blazersedge has a poll function to provide the answers to these tough calls.

I have a strong suspicion as to how this will turn out, but cast your vote on how the Blazers' depth chart at the two and four should stack up for opening night.
