Definitely he will play again. Just depends on whether he accepts his situation or not. He's not a starter anymore, but his ambition has always been such.
If he can accept his new role then he can still be very successful. His personality is off the charts, it's very hard to dislike the man, especially his smile. If his plays it right that could lead to a decent post playing career on TV.
But he has to adapt now. He's not going to be able to do what he did before. He's going to need managed minutes and he's going to make less than he hoped. Big hurdles to overcome but if he can he is still a very special person and could still be a huge difference maker on a contender.
