In my opinion, yes they should. The reason why is because even though he is injured when he plays hard and he plays smart. This team needs more players like that. Guys like him and James Singleton (energy guys). Even if he will probably miss the first week or month of the season the wizards will have someone like Al Thornton to fill the void. The wizards can also draft an impact small-forward like maybe Wesley Johnson???
I would take a chance on this guy because of the way he plays. Maybe at the beginning of the year Gilbert Arenas could have to do more. Or Al Thornton is the guy for the year and Josh Howard could spot him some time off the bench while still recovering. That may not be a bad idea.
