Coach Pop Pregame Media Availability - Spurs vs. Rockets

(On the starting lineup tonight…)
“Kawhi (Leonard) is not playing tonight… I haven’t even thought about it. Maybe Boris (Diaw). Maybe (Marco) Belinelli.”

(On the team’s rotation for the season…)
“Boris (Diaw) is going to play off the bench. Manu (Ginobili) is going to play off the bench. After that I don’t know.”

(On resting players throughout the season…)
“We’ve basically been doing that for as long as Tim (Duncan) has been here. We started doing it with Manu and everybody else. We do it with Kawhi. It’s a part of what we do. We’re just trying to extend careers. There’s enough rest in the summer time. It’s a lot of time off.”
