The rule that says there must be 5 players if there are 5 available trumps the various sit-out rules. If taking the injured player out would leave a team with fewer than 5 players, the get to stay in.
Show me in the rules where this exception exists. The caser play shown above does not indicate this. It indicates that an eligible player from the bench, who otherwise would be required to sit out can come back in as a substitute for an injured player when they otherwise would need to "sit a tick". It does not say that a player forced by rule to leave the game can re-enter without sitting.

The case play states clearly that a player does not have to "sit a tick" if there are fewer than 6 players available to play. So, if you want to insist the player go to the bench, send him to the bench, and then let him right back in since the case plays says he doesn't have to "sit a tick."

Yes, the scenario is slightly different, but the precedent is clear and the difference in situations is nominal at best.

That said, if you want to insist the coach pick a different shooter in this scenario and play short until the clock properly runs, go right ahead. It's not a situation likely to occur more than 2 or 3 times in your career. But how you handle it could actually affect your career.

Exactly. Don't be that guy. The case play may not specifically cover that exact situation, but sometimes it's better to play with the rulebook rather than have it bronzed and on a pedestal. (Sorry, that's another thread.)
