Somewhere between 36 and 32 minutes is OK. The more Covington plays SF I bet it means the more Wiggins plays SG curtailing Culver's time on the court. I don't want that. RoCo should get at least 16 minutes at the PF.
I'm okay with KAT playing way below league average mpg, I'd keep RoCo under 30 minutes as well. I'm okay with reducing playing time after b2b games or games with overtimes or games after long travels. Keeping KAT and other guys healthy while playing competetive basketball should #1 priority
Playing time is valuable resource. Get maximum out of these minutes from KAT/Wiggins/RoCo trio, use minutes left to develop young players. Once our leaders are on the bench it should be up to our bench to step up, both in intensity and hustle.
I dont want to see meangless injuries that can hurt our season again.
You keep having this idea that playing time leads to an increased injury rate. IT DOESN"T. KAT is an elite supremely conditioned athlete. He is easily able to handle 36 MPG and since he is our best player he should be playing 36 or close to it.
You sounds like Thibs. All his ex players are either declining quickly or broken. The problem is that NBA reality is changing. As NBA organization you must manage playing time wisely otherwise you might fall out cliff very quickly. See GSW case with KD and Klay. Only miracle will help them to survive next season with Curry as main option in offense. Miracle or very strict minutes.
