Emeka Okefor injury hurts Hornets

March 10th 2012 14:25
By Jeff Golub

The 6-10 big man Emeka Okefor has started 27 games this year. He has a fairly rough season while playing, as he has been injured since February with a sore left knee, so this analysis is only based on what he has done so far. Averaging a career low 1.0 blocks per game, he has also been averaging a career low 9.9 points per game. His effeciency has also gone down in just about all categories, like his overall effeciency, which has gone down 0.6 from last year, his most efficient year was 2006/2007, in that year he had a 20.1 effieciency rating. His defense has been solid, but offensively he has been below average. His blocks have been going way down, too.

He was the fourth best player on the Hornets before his injury and the team has been playing much worse without him. Don't be fooled by their record. Team chemistry was a lot worse back then, because they a lot of new players in the lineup from the Paul trade and the schedule was a lot tougher. They played many games against the Mavs and the Heat in his healthy period..
