Fab Melo: 36 appearances
Doc Rivers doesn't play rookies. Last season, rookies JaJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore appeared in 36 and 38 games respectively, averaging about 8 minutes each in mop-up performances. Sullinger is further along in his development, but Melo still has a lot of growing to do. The early guess here is that Melo fails to crack the rotation and spends some time in the D-League.
