What they’re saying
“I don’t really have a number on how many minutes he can or can’t play. Obviously he can’t play the minutes that ManMan (Williams’ nickname) and some of those guys are playing right now, and it’s not warranted anyway. I think it will be situation a little bit. How the game’s going, what we need or don’t need at that time. He’s not in any kind of shape to play 20-plus minutes. So we’ll ease him in and hopefully he can help the team.” — Wake Forest coach Steve Forbes on Monsanto.
