Just how are Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, Wayne Ellington and Danny Green doing?
[table id=5 /]
Danny Green has only played one minute this season so he was not included on the chart.
Ty Lawson has gotten rave reviews so far, especially from Denver coach George Karl who famously does not play rookies. Lawson is now the #2 PG on the Nuggets behind Chauncey Billups(who was the PG on the Colorado team UNC beat for Dean Smith's 877th win.) Lawson has been mentioned in Rookie of the Year discussions except for the fact that Milwaukee's Brandon Jennings will probably end up winning it seeing he dropped 55 points the other night and chances are Jennings will continue to play well. Still, there were doubters who did not think Lawson could cut it. So far it appears those folks are going to eat crow.
Tyler Hansbrough is still working his way back from a shin injury. After a nice debut game, Hansbrough has struggled a bit shooting the basketball. Likewise Wayne Ellington is still getting acclimated to the league and also happens to be playing for a crappy team.
