Community Projection: Etan Thomas

It's safe to say that last year was a lost year for Etan Thomas. After an injury-filled 2004/05, he never got back on track, falling completely out of the rotation by the end of the year. The Wizards could have really used him in the Cleveland series, but he was so bad by the end of the year that Michael Ruffin was higher in the rotation. In the offseason, however, Thomas shocked everyone by winning the center job from Brendan Haywood and proved it with a strong performance against the Cavaliers.

Last year: 71 games, 15.7 minutes, 4.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.0 blocks

My projection: 70 games, 24.7 minutes, 7.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.7 blocks

Thomas' projected numbers are fairly similar to his 2004 numbers, with only a dip in scoring. I figure that since the team has so many more scorers than they did in 2004, Thomas shouldn't get nearly as many opportunities to score. With that being said, 7 boards in 24 minutes is pretty solid, as is 1.7 blocks. I expect him to be a key part of the squad as long as he's healthy.

Now, it's your turn. Predict Thomas' numbers in each of these categories.
