If he is at 60%, I doubt they would allow him to play. At least for the regular season.
And we are not benching Amar'e so that we can continue to play Melo at the 4 and Fields at the 3. Melo is a career SF, so let's not get too comfortable with him playing PF. It would wear him down in the long run.
If you really want to know who got in Melo's way, it was Landry Fields. He plays the same position as him, and occupies the same space.
