Fredericks should be able to play the 4 in a small ball line-up, so I'm not worried about playing time even if Evans does come back. I think it's the freshmen who probably get squeezed out of the rotation if Evans returns. If Evans doesn't return, the playing time could work out something like this:

Cumberland - 30 minutes
Broome - 24 minutes
Fredericks - 24 minutes
Jenifer - 20 minutes
Scott - 20 minutes
Brooks - 16 minutes
Williams - 15 minutes
Moore - 15 minutes
Nsoseme - 10 minutes
Diarra - 10 minutes
Hardnett - 8 minutes
Johnson - 8 minutes

If all 12 guys are good enough to see the floor, there are definitely worse problems to have than not having enough minutes to go around. If Evans comes back, I could see maybe see one of the freshmen redshirting.

I think this is a pretty good assessment. My only question would be a combined 26 minutes from Brooks and Nsoseme. I really don't think we have anyone else who can handle a big with some size and protect the rim at the same time. I think 20 and 12 might be closer.

24 for Fredericks seems like too much knowing how it is for first year guys here.

If Brooks or Nsoseme average 20, I'll be disappointed. I hope for 15 each max. Puts a lot on Scott though.

I don't know what Fredericks will get. He can offer time at the 3 and 4 since he is a rebound guy and can shoot a little. My preference would be to see Williams improve his shooting to 30%+ and increase his intensity on D and rebounding for the 3 spot. If he wants to play a lot that is what he will have to do.

I don't think 18/12 from Brooks/Nsoseme is too far off. Scott can't spend too much time guarding a 5 or protecting the rim.
