The Forwards

Jeremy Sochan: Play

Although this might sound strange for a rookie logging around 26 minutes per game, the Spurs could still afford to give Jeremy Sochan more leeway on the court. The teenage forward earned an invitation to the Rising Stars Game at All-Star Weekend. And San Antonio should continue exploring all routes to help him achieve his high-end outcome. More minutes, touches, and shots for Sochan, please.

Isaiah Roby: Hold

Nobody expected Isaiah Roby to suddenly transform into a star when the Spurs claimed him off waivers this offseason. But the fourth-year forward has failed to meet even the lowest expectations. Roby seemed like a solid 3&D reserve with the Thunder. Unfortunately, every facet of his game has slipped in Alamo City. He hasn't seen extended run under Gregg Popovich this season, but that could change on the last leg of the schedule.

Dominick Barlow: Sit

If you read our article on Dominick Barlow, you already know my opinions on the talented two-way signee. As exhilarating as it would be to see San Antonio deploy a quartet of 19-year-olds in their nightly rotation, they are still trying to field an operational on-court product. Barlow is in the same boat as Champagnie, and the best use of his time would be another stint in Austin to fine-tune his repertoire.
