He's not playing tonight for "rest" purposes.

Geez, here we go.

What did he have, three or four days off

If he can't play every night, I guess I understand. But he needs to play the games that are winnable.

Utah is winnable. Out of the five west coast games, GS and LA Clippers are the two least winnable, so have him sit one of those.

Need to get two out of these five, three out of five would be better.

In that regard, sitting against Utah, not the best move.

Another view is sitting him in a non back to back is not a good indication on how he is healing. He shouldn't need a full game this early with many nights off previous.
