I'm not sure if there is a eligibility cutoff for number of conference games played, but TW played in ten and will miss seven or eight. Playing in 56% of the games ... I love the guy and would love to see him included, but I'm not sure it's a strong case. As UNMLoboFan1 said about Marshall, he was a lock for POY until 6 or 7 games ago, now it's back in play. Whose to say TW wouldn't have had a similar experience, or go nuts and also be in contention for POY? Thing is we can't know without him playing the games. I hate to say it, but I think no.
