Before missing a handful of games in late December with a lower-back injury, Hezonja looked to be on the outs for a rotation spot, but he appears to have secured his spot on the second unit for now.

The 2015 first-round pick probably won't see his playing time pick up much from this level, however, as C.J. McCollum (illness) will poach minutes from a slew of players if he's deemed ready to play Tuesday in Toronto.
