He wasn't playing during that time because he was injured. They didn't bench him. I can't remember his exact injury, but I think it was a back injury or something like that. He was out due to injury, not because he was getting DNP-CDs.
And the team was winning all their games without him, so there was no need to rush him back until he was fully healthy.
There is no conspiracy in European basketball to hide NBA draft prospects from NBA scouts. I don't know where this false narrative began, although I remember it really starting with guys like Kurucs, Bender, and Hezonja. Bottom line, none of it was true even 1% in those cases, and it's not true even 1% in Poku's case overall.
This is some kind of strange marketing gimmick for the NBA that US sports media has totally created out of thin air. There isn't even a single iota of truth to it.
