That's ridiculous. You can change up to the second you exchange lineups. In fact, I lost a match last year (in part) because the other team didn't have players in their lineup for which I was specifically arranging my lineup to avoid bad matchups, so this year, one of the things I resolved to do better as a captain is to note who is present for the other team at any given match dureing warmups and make changes if it's not who I expected to be there.
