Some updated stats which show that fouls are not up much at all. Apparently most players are already adjusting.

According to #KPI Analytics, there are only 2.71 more fouls being called per game this season than at the same time last year. That’s right — fewer than three extra whistles per game! That has resulted in 4.1 more free throws per game. Overall, scoring is up 5.86 points per game — a welcome increase — and slightly more than half of those points have come from field goals as opposed to free throws.
