Raymond Felton has been terrible lately
From a fantasy bball perspective, but here's RotoWOrld:
Raymond Felton probably lost his job in the Blazers' nationally televised 74-71 home loss to the Clippers on Thursday, going hitless from the field on seven shot attempts on his way to zero points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal, and five turnovers in 24 minutes.
Felton has completely lost his confidence. Coming into camp out of shape he has not been able to shoot, so defenses are playing well off of him and that keeps him from penetrating, passing, and ultimately bogs down the Blazers' offense. Jamal Crawford is not the answer at PG, however, and Nolan Smith apparently isn't ready yet, so Felton has been allowed to keep ramming his head into the wall. The Blazers should try a Dirk Nowitzki-like rehab stint because they'll need Felton starting if they want to go anywhere, because Crawford is not the answer, and owners should try to wait and see what shoe drops next. If you have to drop him, though, we'd understand.
