Kendrick Perkins: Glass Cleaner

Mar 6, 2012


.
When he is not busy getting posterized in a dunk or collecting technicals like he was Rasheed Wallace, Perkins has been busy hitting the glass.
.
In his last seven games he has averaged 10.4 rebounds, collecting double-digit boards in five of the games. On the year he is averaging 6.5 rebounds per night, but he only had one double-digit rebounding game during the first two months of the season. Since February 6th he has had seven.
.
Perkins has averaged 1.9 blocks over the past seven games, but that number is deceiving thanks to a six block game on February 20th against the Hornets.
.
Still, he has been good for 1.2 blocks per game on the year so that is another category he can help you in.
.
Scoring, however, is a different story. Perkins has a 4.4 ppg average, and has only reached double-figures twice on the year, the last one coming on February 10th.
.
With 0.9 assist per game and 0.3 steal per game averages, Perkins is basically a two category player. While he is a 55.5 percent career shooter, that is down to 45.1 percent this year. Besides, he doesn’t take enough shots to really make a big difference either way.
.
Perkins is owned in 11.1 percent of ESPN and 29 percent of Yahoo! leagues. If you are looking for a big man to give you a rebounds boost and can afford to have minimal scoring, Kendrick can fill that role.
