Baron Davis's minutes will be monitored.

Baron Davis has looked...not...great in the two games he's played since returning from a hamstring injury. I don't know if it's still an injury thing or just a "sometimes you're dribbling and you just don't FEEL like it anymore, you know?" thing, but Mike Woodson seems to favor the former. Via Marc Berman:

"I don’t think he’s ever going to be 100 percent,’’ Woodson said. "We just have to take what he can give when he’s out on the floor. And I have to monitor his minutes and make sure I don’t burn him and he’s sitting on the sidelines again. I don’t think he’s 100 percent and I don’t think he’ll ever be 100 percent.’’

Sure, sounds reasonable. The Knicks do benefit a lot from having Baron on his feet, because for all his idiosyncrasies, he's done some nice shot creatin' in a second unit that needs it. So yeah, monitor those minutes and make sure he's not wearing down. I'm just happy the Knicks aren't relying solely on Baron (which might very well have been the case if Jeremy Lin didn't fall from the heavens) this season. That would have been troublesome and we were (read: I was) pretty silly to think otherwise.

Stay healthy, beardface.
