Cavs coach Mike Brown won’t be giving young players extra minutes to develop as the season winds down, telling Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio he will coach with the sole purpose of winning games, even after the Cavs become mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Here’s more from around the Central:
- Seth Curry, working on a 10-day contract with the Cavs, is a player that might not benefit from Brown’s philosophy, the coach told Jodie Valade of The Plain Dealer. “There’s some little things he can help us with out on the floor, but only time will see how many minutes he gets for us with the bodies we have that are banged up,” said Brown.
- Contradicting an earlier report, Bucks officials tell Charles F. Gardner of The Milwaukee Journel Sentinel that injured guard Carlos Delfino will return to Milwaukee to rehab his foot. The earlier report indicated that Delfino would stay in his homeland of Argentina for the rest of the season.
- In the same piece, Gardner writes that Bucks rookie point guard Nate Wolters will miss the remainder of the season with a fractured hand. The 38th pick from the 2013 draft has played 22.6 minutes per game and started 31 times for Milwaukee this year.
