Did Wells get benched tonight due to injury or coaches decision?

Hey do you guys think what JVG is doing to Wells is kinda risky? ok imho, what JVG is doing in disciplining Wells that only the fittest can play and stuff like that is for a positive outcome, however its Wells we're talking about here, a veteran who CHOSE to come to Houston to play and get minutes, hes not one of the rookies in which JVG is trying to teach and stuff, I think eventually as JVG keep on benching him, his giant ego will take over and also be a time-set bomb eventually about to blow up, I dont think he signed to sit on the bench, lets keep in mind that he needs this season to be great to pursue a bigger contract in the future.

What do you guys think?


I agree -- I would at least give Wells a few minutes and increase those minutes as he gets in shape/makes progress in practice (JVG should add some carrots to that stick he's beating Wells up with)

I agree with you. It seems like the free agents that come to Houston get treated like crap by JVG.

You are right on! I definitely agree, JVG is doing the same thing with Wells that he did with Swift, regardless of how it affects the team. He is one of those coaches whose ego is a lot bigger than his coaching skills and definitely needs a kick in his rear end.

I think JVG is doing the right thing. If he makes an exception for Wells, then other players will feel like they deserve exceptions too.
