If he was forced to play 40 minutes per game, he'd have to lower his energy level and he won't get his valuable rest time on the bench. His overall production per minute would go down immensely.

Duncan is putting up these numbers in 30.4 mins:

17.8 pts / 10.2 rebs / 2.4 asst / 0.8 stl / 2.6 blks / 51.3%FG / 79.2%FT / 1.6 TO / 1.8 PF

which is comparable to Dwight Howard's in 36.7 mins:

18.2 pts / 11.9 reb / 1.9 asst / 1.0 stl / 2.6 blks / 57.9%FG / 49.2%FT / 3.3 TO / 3.7 PF
