Now would be a good time.
Give him the DEN, POR and Philly games off. That's about 10 days. Let him rest and stay back in LA with no practice, travel or contact. Let him give his body time to heal. Give him a chance to get over the hump in his rehab. We have Nash back and can make a big showcase out of starting Pau at 5. It's a chance to get a GOOD look at what Pau will and will not be able to do with Nash on the floor. If he can find his way in the low post, good. If he still struggles with Nash running the show AND Howard out, his fate is sealed.
IMHO, it's the right thing to do...not just for now, but also for the future. 2 birds, 1 stone.
