(11/22/2013) Bobcats forward Jeff Adrien has been an unlikely contributor this season, though he didn't do much in a 98-91 loss to the Suns Friday.
Adrien played 16 minutes off the bench Friday, the third straight game he has had a solid role. He finished the game with just five points on 1 of 3 shooting. He added three rebounds, one game after snagging 10 in 25 minutes in a win.
Adrien has appeared in nine of the team's first 13 games, after playing just 52 of 82 a year ago. He is averaging 3.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.
