Exactly. It's not just the games he misses...it's the quarter of a game here...the half game there....and the many times he's not any good because he's trying to run on a bad hammy or play through some other ailment.
He had a little window for a couple of season...but he's just not all that anymore. He's simply not an explosive player anymore.
I'd release him...even if I had to roll with even a second-teir (cheap) FA...or middle round draftee.
