I'm probably going to be floating at around 18640 minutes. Should I be super worried?
Anything less than 19,300 and its a mathematical certainty some of your players will hit fatigue, (and that assumes 0 overtimes). You can get away with 19,100 to 19,300 here IMO if you are willing to burn your scrubs into the ground. My team that won ODL 44 had 3-4 low minute low usage guys in the 80-90% range most of the season. I clinched the division and the bye in game #77 then rested them for games 78-81 going 0-4 because I ran my high usage starters out there way past rec minutes. I basically burnt the extra minutes from the bye at the close of the regular season, Kobe, Allen and Wilt were all mid to low 90's at the very end (but only because of those final games). I had to throw a regualr lineup out there in game 82 to preserve the #1 seed and held on, and all of my guys were recovered by round 2 after the bye.
