If it seems like Jamal Crawford is always on the court, it's because he is.

Crawford played all 48 minutes Monday to cap off a four-game stretch in which he has logged 199 minutes, 59 seconds - an average of nearly 50 minutes per game.


"I played 60," Crawford said, referring to his triple-overtime load against the Kings on Wednesday. "I'm conditioned for 48."

Though Crawford entered the Wizards game averaging 37.4 minutes - 19th in the league - he's still only No. 2 on the Warriors.

Stephen Jackson was averaging 39.4 minutes per game, the NBA's third-highest.

More on Monta: Jeff Fried, the agent for Monta Ellis, said he had a "positive" meeting with Warriors brass Monday as the two sides attempt to close the book on Ellis' punishment for his moped accident.

The face-to-face gathering that included team president Robert Rowell, owner Chris Cohan, vice president Chris Mullin and assistant GM Larry Riley, comes as Ellis nears his return to game action after practicing with the Warriors for the last week.

Ellis severely injured his ankle in August while riding a moped - an activity banned in his contract - and was suspended for 30 games by Rowell.

At the time, Rowell left the door open for future punishment, which prompted Fried to file a grievance against the Warriors.

Crawford is used to logging a lot of minutes, he said it himself that he's conditioned for 48 minutes. I say keep playing him heavy, his numbers are responding well to it.

Once Monta gets back, hopefully that means Crawford can rest a little more, especially when his offense isn't in rhythm and he's missing shots. Although C.J. Watson's minutes will definitely take a hit, I think Crawford's will too, and that's a good thing.
