Is Smith out there playing point guard in league games? Would you feel better if CSA said," This is a terrible loss, and we do not have anyone to replace Campbell, so we'll just have to play Hands 38 minutes a game there"? Then everyone can blame CSA for not having any other thoughts?

I assume that if Smith is completely incapable of playing even spot minutes at PG, it will be obvious. I didn't see Looney playing any PG. Actually, CSA is pretty good at adapting to players being out, up to a point, of course. He is optimistic, and wants his team to be. So he'll try a few configurations in practice, see what looks feasible. Probably nothing much is, but he's not going to say that, and he's going to try various things to see what the best option might be. I have no brilliant suggestion here; Ali can't play point, and Wilkes can't, and that's what we have on the squad. You usually don't expect your 5'9" frosh PG to have a season-ending injury in preseason practice. I would have recruited one more guard, and one less wing, but I guess they tried to, to at least some extent.
