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: Kevin Seraphin.

SYNOPSIS: Some very rare flashes of brilliance as a backup center have largely been overshadowed by longer stretches where he looks overmatched athletically, physically and intellectually on the court. His sterling on/off numbers paint some picture of a valuable player once he learns the game, but he still isn't in great shape and has yet to demonstrate the explosiveness that caused the Wizards to covet him in the 2010 NBA Draft.
