*MINIMUMS FOR NBA ROOKIE LEADERS
(half of the overall-requirement)

Following is a chart which shows the statistical minimums a player needs to achieve to be listed among the league leaders at any given point in the season. When checking a player’s status, find the number of games the player’s TEAM has played in the first column. Then read the number to the right in the second column and check to see if the PLAYER has played in at least that many games. If he has, he is eligible to be among the league leaders in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals, blocked shots and minutes. If he has not played in at least that many games, read the number to the right in the relevant statistical category to determine if the player is on pace to qualify for the league leaders based on production. (Players qualify for the league leaders in shooting accuracy based only on the number of shots made, not games played.)
