Yeah, exactly, he's a "starter". The guys starting the game do not have to be the main 5 guys. At $9 million, 28mpg he has the 3rd highest salary and 4th most minutes on the team. It's just the Spurs (winning) System that has the whole team playing rather than in the old days of 5 guys playing 44 and 5 guys backing up for 4.
Kapopo will start, and if Delfino shows some magic slashing and rebounding and D (as mentioned by others above) than Halleluiah, then Raps do indeed have sick depth!
