If you're in the top 5 in minutes you are no different than a starter in basketball. He gets in foul trouble that's why he usually doesn't start. We need him in the game more at the end. He has done better coming off the bench than starting so far.
He's been substituted out a number of times in crunch time in games that I've seen. Managing the lineup and player rotations seem to be a clear weak spot for Conroy.
He gets substituted out to give fouls, or get quicker players in the lineup to apply pressure.
