18.1 apg, 6.7 apg, 3.6 rpg, 1.0 spg, 2.9 to/game, 35.5 mpg, .467 FG %, (6.14 fgm/game, 13.14 fga/game) ,333 3 PT % (1.21 3PTM/game, 3.64 3PTA/game),
.810 FT % (4.57 FTM/game, 5.64 FTA/game).

Problem is coaches tend to favour traditional PGs. Casey though I believe is starting to see that Jose shouldn't be playing more than 25 mins/game due to his D, health and conditioning.

Lastly, why did bayless have to get injured?
Coaches favour different things depending on their philosohpy. Mike D'antoni favours up tempo offence. Casey favour defence. Jose cannot play either well and Bayless is injured again. Hes got hurt closer to the end of last season only to get hurt after playing a couple games of extended minutes again this season. Is this because of the compressed schedule-keep in mind the Raptors had a day's rest between washington and milwaukee-one could argue. Or is Bayless pushing his limit knowing he needs a contract soon or is he simply injury prone? or could it be something else? Whatever it is, its not all that bad. A higher pick in the draft is what we need this season and Milwaukee was the one of easier home games this stretch.
