With Andre Iguodala missing time due to patellar tendinitis in his left knee, an opportunity is opening up for the recently acquired Sam Young.
"It comes now to a five-man rotation [off the bench]," Doug Collins said. "He and Lou [Williams] now become the two guys off the bench on the perimeter. A lot of it is the matchups on a night-to-night basis, who's playing particularly well at that point in time.
"He's a guy who, when we were watching tape, he's been speaking up and talking. He's a guy who started for a playoff team. He knows what being in the playoffs and preparation is all about. He's tough and he just wants to win, and so I'm really happy that he's on our team."
