To put it bluntly, this has been a terrible season for Andray Blatche. The 6-foot-11, seventh-year forward is shooting a career-low 38 percent, averaging just 10.3 points, has been hurt or playing hurt pretty much the whole time, and gets lustily booed at home games. For the first time in his career, Blatche will fail to improve on his scoring and rebounding production from the year before.

He was benched in favor of Jan Vesely on Jan. 27, and strained his left calf in a win over Charlotte the very next day. Blatche has missed the past 13 games, and 16 overall this season. The Wizards are bad with Blatche (4-13) and without him (3-13), though Trevor Booker, John Wall and Nick Young have played better in his absence.
