Nando De Colo's rookie season has been an up and down one so far. He's been shuffled around and hasn't been getting as many minutes as he'd probably like.
De Colo's misfortune comes from the team having an abundance in point guards and guys who can play the point guard position. With Tony Parker commanding the majority of the minutes at point and Patrick Mills eclipsing Gary Neal for the backup spot, De Colo seems to be the odd man out for now unless a string of injures happen.
