Jason Collins with a few more minutes lately
Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who's dealt with more lineup-related questions this season than perhaps ever, seemed ready to be asked about Chris Wilcox playing only three minutes in Saturday's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Jason Collins, the Celtics' other backup center option, took the bulk of the minutes, with a season-high 14.

"Yeah, Jason gives us size and he's playing well," Rivers said afterward. "He played well [Friday], he helps out. Chris does his things, too, so I got a feeling it'll be back and forth all year."

It's worth acknowledging that Wilcox was in a bit of a funk the latter part of last week, dealing with a strange stomach bug that forced him out midway through last Wednesday's loss to the Brooklyn Nets and caused him to miss practice on Thursday. Even though he played Wilcox for 14 minutes in Friday's win, Rivers cautioned before the game that he wasn't looking to overextend him.

Thankfully Doc came to his senses and stopped playing Collins, because he has sucked every single game. Wilcox is doing better with each game.

Between Wilcox, Green, Bass, and Sullinger, the Celtics are keeping afloat better when KG is on the bench.

Their problem now is containing dribble penetration on the perimeter: it's just not happening. They need Barbosa back. He was harassing dribblers well and attacking the rim to boot.

Collins is an emergency big, nothing more.
