Are we talking about the user-controlled team, or the rest of the league controlled by CPU???
The user has the option of controlling the player-role and playing-time for each player on his/her roster, or automating it so that the CPU makes decisions regarding PT.
As for the automated option, the CPU generally just chooses the player that has the highest overall rating for determining player roles on a given team. Players like O.J. Mayo, Manu Ginobli, and James Harden, are all given starting roles due to their superior player ratings relative to that of their respective counterpart.
