NBA Minutes Per Game

Minutes in NBA are a pretty straight forward way of figuring out which players are getting a majority of the run. Minutes mean fantasy production, and that is where we usually start. A player getting 35+ minutes means he is on the court producing at a solid rate. Lineups breaks down minutes by a date basis, showing you individual player’s minutes per game over the last 10 or 30 games. This is key because player’s minutes will change often throughout a season. This is also another way to keep an eye on players on back-to-back nights, or three games in four nights. Production will drop when players are in the midst of a tough part of the schedule. Next to minutes you can see basic stats to find quick production in a hurry. We want to match the production with heavy minutes because they go hand-in-hand. You have the option to view in a per-game sense, per possession, or per 36 minutes. Using per 36 can be a little misleading if a player gets in, mainly because usage and efficiency isn’t a guarantee.

Rotations are very important to pay attention to, and can change throughout the year. Coaches will move players on and off the bench, but that does not necessarily mean minutes will change. Take a player like Lou Williams or Will Barton, their bench role means nothing for their minutes. They easily see over 30 minutes a night, and will get into the game within a few minutes of it starting. Coaches will often insert a player into the lineup to change things up during a bad stretch, but minutes can be tough to trust. The more frustrating part of fantasy basketball is the teams with log jams at positions, or coaches that simply just like to limit minutes. There is nothing worse than four to five players in a backcourt playing around 24-28 minutes a night. This means long lengthy rotations that limit upside for fantasy. Brooklyn is notorious for this given their eight million wings and guards. Keeping tabs on these scenarios is key for fantasy, and you can get an edge over others. Using this page to your advantage will give you that edge as well. Certain teams and players will make it easy on you, like LeBron James who somehow manages to plug in 35+ minutes a night at his age. Tom Thibodeau is one coach who is known for logging heavy minutes in the starting five. If every coach was like this then this section would be much shorter. You will find many of the Minnesota players up there in minutes, and Jimmy Butler knows all about that from his Chicago days. Use the “per game” and “per 36 minutes” stat views to keep tabs on players getting a chance at more minutes in the starting lineup. Take it with a grain of salt as this isn’t a standard projection for what to expect, as it is best to drop down the usage a bit.
