Default Stretching and/or rolling during workout?

My guess is that its not optimal, but for someone that has limited time, would it be advisable to stretch and/or roll during warmup sets of sn/cj/squat?

The alternative would be to do no stretching or rolling around the workout and only much later at night.

if it makes a difference, I generally never miss below 95% of my max when I am doing singles...

Yes, that's fine. Good way to save time and a lot of people prefer it.

Yes eventually. It took me about 5 years to get around to the rolling video, so maybe by 2020.

For what it's worth, my physical therapist wants me to do a couple of stretches (unrelated to weightlifting) at various times during my weightlifting sessions. My guess is because one is nice and warm then and stretching is easier. She also likes spreading stretching throughout the day. I don't object, but confess that most of the time I just forget to do them.

For people who lack time for stretching, let me suggest stretching every commercial when watching TV or heading to the kitchen. I've done that off and on for many years and think well of it.
