Pe' & Len Impact Statements

It's been eight weeks or so since we learned Pe'Shon Howard broke a bone in his foot, and would miss significant time this year. At roughly the same time, we found out Olexiy Len would serve a 10-game suspension; less than most expected.

Howard will be back on Friday, and Len on Dec. 28. How much of an impact do you think each will have, both immediately, and by the end of the season?

I expect Pe's contributions will be more difficult to quantify. Hopefully, he'll make everyone else better, lend a degree of stability offensively (reduced turnovers, greater cohesiveness), and offer help with the perimeter defense. I expect his greatest statistical contribution will be in the area of assists. He finished his freshman season with a 2:1 a/to ratio, and hit 36% from beyond the arc, averaging 5.7 ppg. Even a slight improvement on those numbers would be a huge shot in the arm.

Len is a veritable blank slate. But at 7-1, with good athleticism and excellent touch from 15 feet - he's capable of hitting some 3's, too - hopes are understandably high. I think Len finishing with 8 ppg, 6rpg, and 2 blocks would be a conservative estimate.
