I don't think sitting them for an entire game is the smart thing to do. They are currently in an extended break and getting some rest as we speak.
Now having said that, if the Clips lose, I'd expect the Sacto game to work out like an NFL pre-season game. (The one game where starters actually play more than 1 series). Starters play a half of basketball, like a normal game, and if it's necessary play half the 3rd. That would give them enough work to not get rusty and keep their bodies in game shape.
I expect to see a lot of Ebanks and Hill in the game. Ebanks will be forced into action with Ron out for however many games and Hill could really cement his place as the 3rd big in the playoffs with a good showing. Barnes has a sprained ankle, I don't think he should push himself too much, we need that man healthy come playoff time.
Blake / McFly / Ebanks / Hill / Barnes....is our bench for the playoffs IMO. Get these guys some big minutes in this game, aside from Barnes, so they head into the playoffs with a full head of steam.
