Thomas is a 3/4, any minutes he would take would be Bonner's....and he can't spread the floor like Bonner, so don't hold your breath on seeing him on the playoff roster at all.
What's with all the Green hate lately? Oh wow, teams are actually guarding him and he's not shooting as well. His role is to play great defense and not screw up too much on offense, the Bowen slot. Its not like he's not playing great D on the guys that are too small for Kawhi or the other team's 2nd best perimeter guy...often pgs that Tony would have to guard otherwise...like Lillard and Westbrook. Spurs fans are a fickle bunch sometimes.
