Anyone noticed? Manu stats!

Ok, so Manu has launched to a very impressive start to 19.8 point per game... but that´s not the most impressive thing. He´s playing only 25 minutes a game.
When you look at his numbers per 48 minutes, he´s only trailing LeBron James.

Just Sayin!

He started off hot last year playing like an MVP so its not that much of a surprise. I want him to stay healthy going into the playoffs unlike last year.

He was healthy up until last game with a bad luck injury. Pop actually managed his minutes perfectly, and he did not get tired towards the end. The elbow thing was plain bad luck, and could´ve happened tired or fresh

Pop had managed him well last season but played him in tr last game when in retrospect he probably should not have. I bet you that if we have a good record at the end of the season, Pop will not even think twice about playing Manu or TD in the last game or two. TD injured his ankle I think the third or second to last game of the season and obvioudly wasnt himself in the PO's.

Manu is always right up there in PER.

I keep saying it: Manu is right up there with Kobe at his position on a per minute basis. Manu just can't play as many minutes/games as guys like Wade and Kobe.

Manu was slumping way before his elbow injury. i think if he didn't get hurt, he'd be turning it up a notch in the playoffs, but his regular season contribution dipped (especially when we went into a half court set with Dice mid-season).

I agree Pop will continue monitoring Tim and Manu´s minutes and will sit their a**es if clinched. Playing them just a bit to keep them rolling.

Since we're playing the young guys on this team than ever before, I think Pop would sit any of the BIG 3 in final game or two without question. Manu is playing with fire this year much like last year when he was our MVP most of the season

'Clinched' in a 66 games in 120 days season could mean a week. Maybe two.

This season is not a marathon. Maybe not a sprint, but a pretty fast mile.

I'm worried, a thread praising Manu (or anything/anybody from Argentina ad w're at it) and Uwe Blab didn't post anything yet, is he OK?

Good thing it won't affect him that much when he does return, but please sit out until 100%

Edit: it was his shooting hand, left hand, so it is bad. Will be out most likely 4 weeks

I posted in another thread about needing another dependable scorer because there is a big problem with depending so much on a guy who had trouble staying healthy.

Well you know good thing we have depth at the guard position so now we know we will most likely have a healthy Manu late in the season. I trust he won't be rushed back just for that reason

that could be said about our Big 3 individually. the thing that we were hoping was with this offense, Manu wouldn't be getting too banged up with a running scheme. the irony: it was on defense. to be fair to Manu, you don't believe you could break your hand going for a swipe.
