Q: Player A1 is fouled in the act of shooting and injured as a result.  Substitute A6 enters the game to shoot 2 free throws.  Upon successful completion of the 2nd free throw, Coach A request a substitute for A6.  Is the substitute allowed, or must A6 remain for because he has not played outside the interval?

A: A6 must remain in the game for at least one clock-running phase of the game.  19.2.4 states - A player who has become a substitute and a substitute who has become a player cannot respectively re-enter the game or leave the game until the ball becomes dead again, after a clock-running phase of the game.
