With any NBA team, there are always going to be players in the middle-to-ends of rotations that deserve more playing time.
As it is a star-driven league, it's just the nature of the beast that the top options on each club tend to log much heavier minutes than role players, rather than an evened off amount for each player.
Take the Boston Celtics, for instance.
Paul Pierce has played over 200 minutes more than Jeff Green, yet we're still in just the first week of December. Over the course of the season, Pierce's knees clearly won't be able to handle that load at this rate. Green's play has been sporadic at times, but perhaps it would be more consistent with more minutes.
Here are five Celtics players that are deserving of more minutes, especially since the three oldest players on the team, Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry, have each been on the floor for more than 500 minutes this season.
