Washington Wizards Midseason Player Evaluation: Chris Singleton

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. Next up: Chris Singleton.

SYNOPSIS: A really strong start to the season has given way to a mystifying fade that seemingly coincided with being handed more consistent playing time. Singleton is struggling with his jump shot, struggling on defense, struggling with his court awareness, struggling with driving to the basket ... there's really nothing he's not struggling with right now. It's way too early for a rookie to hit a wall, so why is Singleton having so many issues? One theory: he played so much as an inside player in college, and he's having trouble adjusting to playing on the perimeter against elite perimeter offensive threats.
