Coach Mick Pentoney's quote: "We've been bringing him off the bench because he's been fighting an illness and hasn't been able to practice. He's not getting a lot of reps, so we're letting him watch the beginning of the game before getting him in there. He never seems to be 100 percent [healthy], but when he gets on the floor he does pretty well.''
