slowly does it big guy. might be overweight due to inactivity. no more than 15 mins. a game for the 1st month might be right ? Then replace andrea in the starting lineup with Memo. Most plays ak stays out of the way & hangs out beyound the arc. Memo can do the same thing without bricking shots & will have a better 3 point % ...Bell & Al are just starting to find their stride. When all 3 (Memo) gel with D-Will & Mill; look-out league ! HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO JAZZ FANS & EVERYBODY ELSE.

Memo shows a little more muscle definition in upper body. Looks like he hit the weights, when he could not use his legs. That might be good.

He has always been a high-class guy but it has looked like back-to-back games against bigger guys wore him down. Fewer minutes in those situations will be good for him. There are plenty of minutes at 4 and 5 for him, AJ, and Millsap and a lot less fot worry about foul trouble and injuries.
