Breakdown Christian Wood

    Overview

  • Experts don't even rank him among PF's. Either he is injured or is just plain bad. Based on his stats from the past 30 days, he is currently ranked 8th with 1323 total points (33.08 avg).
  • He is currently 756 points behind the leader: Julius Randle
  • His average points in the past two weeks have increased by 10.9 PPG. That is great, but how long can he perform at this level? If you don't have the confidence he can keep it up, then trade him for a sure thing.
  • Performance Stats

  • Shooting 52.74% from the field this month. Very good for a big man.
  • Shooting 39.66% from beyond the arc this month.
  • Assists per game numbers are 1.53 apg this month.
  • Rebounds per game numbers are pretty good for a center / power forward with 6.40 rpg this month.

  • At this point in the season his numbers compared to last years: PPG: +2.65, APG: -0.25, RPG: -1.22, MPG: +0.65 STLS: --0.21 BLKS: +0.38

  • Decline in numbers lately by 4 PPG.
