As the Suns fell behind the Nuggets 2-0 in the Western Conference Semifinals, fans were ultimately fed up with the rotation that HC Monty Williams refused to give up. Many left baffled that Monty has not given Terrence Ross or T.J. Warren basically any playing time this postseason.

The Suns signed both veterans after the Kevin Durant blockbuster trade, but, for some unknown reason, Monty refuses to play either. Warren has played a little over 5 minutes throughout seven games, while Ross has played in nine.

Remarkably, neither of the two have made a single basket so far in this playoff run.

And, considering the Suns’ lack of depth on the bench, now more than ever, the Suns need individuals with playoff experience who can bring impactful minutes while Booker or KD are resting.

After the Suns’ loss, fans just about had enough and are demanding answers for why the two veterans are not receiving any minutes off the bench.

With Chris Paul expected to miss time with a groin injury, Monty may have no choice but to play Ross and Warren as the Suns head back home for a Game 3 matchup on Friday.

After all, Phoenix’s bench went a combined 3-17 in Game 2, making it almost impossible for the Suns to hold on to any consistent lead.

At this point, Monty has nothing to lose by giving Terrence Ross and T.J. Warren meaningful minutes off the bench.
