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. Next up: Jordan Crawford.

SYNOPSIS: Jordan Crawford's early-season play has to rank as one of the major disappointments of the season. Instead of growing into a more efficient player, Crawford instead kept making wild forays to the basket and displaying some of the worst shot selection in the entire league. While he has decent court vision, he hasn't really put it on display a lot. The good news is that he has picked it up recently, averaging 21.2 points on 54 percent shooting in the Wizards' last five games. Hopefully he can use that as a springboard for a better second half.
