Southerland Keeps Waiting
James Southerland made the Charlotte Bobcats opening day roster; an impressive accomplishment in itself for the undrafted rookie out of Syracuse. Five games into the season, Southerland is still waiting to make his NBA debut. He has been a healthy 'coaches decision' scratch for each of those games.
The Bobcats have been playing about a 9 to 10 man rotation for each game, and three of their five games have been close games. Southerland does appear to be the last man on the bench, as thirteen other Bobcats have played.
Best of luck to Southerland, and I hope the opportunity for some playing time arises soon.
