Washington Wizards Midseason Player Evaluation: Andray Blatche

New, comments

We've reached the very midway point of the 2011-12 season, which is kind of refreshing given that the All-Star Break usually signifies the 60-percent mark of the year. As such, we'll be running midseason evaluation threads for each player on the team over the next several days. First up: Andray Blatche.

SYNOPSIS: Andray Blatche's season has kind of been a disaster. He began with big proclamations about wanting to be a leader, but once again, those have become empty promises. His offensive inefficiency has reached an all-time low as fans have booed him in his own home arena, and his defense remains pretty bad. He did play hurt, suffering a calf injury that has kept him out for several weeks, but most coaches probably would have benched him before that.
