Cabarkapa doesn't thrive in slower-tempo offense

One of the Warriors who seems to be left out of the early season success has been Zarko Cabarkapa. He's scoring just 4.6 points per game in 8.8 minutes and not getting into the flow of the offense well.
One of the obvious individual victims of the Warriors' slower tempo this season is forward Zarko Cabarkapa. The third-year forward, averaging just 4.6 points, has hardly resembled the productive reserve he was last season.

Cabarkapa endeared himself to teammates and fans with his production off the bench. He gave the Warriors energy and matchup advantages. He proved to be one of the team's most efficient players, averaging 6.5 points in 12.5 minutes.
I'm sure it's tough for Monty to split minutes amongst the deep bench especially now with Taft playing an increased role. With Foyle, Murphy, Biedrins, and Taft having established their roles, it's tough for Cabarkapa to squeeze into the lineup. With Diogu coming back soon it will only make it more difficult for the 3rd year foward to impact the game.

If Diogu shows to have some low-post scoring ability, I think that even Biedrins will be getting less playing time. Z and Biedrins just don't seem to be built Ford tough...

Zarko to me is well suited to SF. Heck, he should play behind Pietrus with Dunleavy being the 3rd string SF the way things are going. Zarko is a very good shooter and that would be great to get the offense going
