No Guaranteed Minutes?

The Bucks announced their opening day starting line-up today and Easy Yi's preseason performance earned him the nod over Charlie V. The rationale was that Yi would fit better with the Bucks defensive style, as he would be able to get back quicker. Moreover, Yi would not command the ball on offense the way that Charlie V does, opening up more opportunities for Michael Redd (like he needs them), Mo Williams, and Andrew Bogut.

One could speculate that there was an arrangement for this to happen so that Yi would come play for the Bucks, but Coach Krystowiak assures us that this is not the case. You might think that the Bucks regret giving up everyone's favorite point guard TJ Ford now though.
