Who knows, we'll find out next year. No one can really say yes or no with any real confidence. He might be, knee problems have a way of ruining careers. But then again, we've seen guys come back from knee problems and still be very good players.

He played well at the end of the season even if he was taking it easy. It'll take a while for his shooting touch to come back, and he may or may not have the explosiveness he used to, but there's no reason to think he won't impact the league.

He can still ball, but nowhere that one breakout year. He'll be an all star next year.

I'm pretty sure he'll be able to get his game going next year.

If he misses most of the season next year, that'll be strike three. Until than, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. My condolences to people who drafted him in fantasy!

Im sure hes lost some of his quickness but I still expect him to put up good numbers. 20ppg and 6 assists

20 ppg is washed up for Arenas' standards.

Hopefully he can pull off 24-ish ppg.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he can still play at a high level. He's only 27 years old so he's still in his prime years

NO he isn't. When he's healthy he is he Wizards.

I think when he comes back nect year he can average 22-27 PPG and 5-9 assists.

He'll keep scoring. He'll also keep shooting a very low percentage, turning the ball over 4 times a game, and jacking up a heinous amount of shots.

I hate Gil, think he's extremely overrated, but he will make the Wizards a much better team next year. He can still ball. He is only 27.

Im expecting him to be become a better player next year. Not scoring wise but a better all around player.

Honestly, his injury has never given anyone a chance to make that observation. Its annoying.

if by any chance Wizards get rubio and coach is wise enough to start rubio at pg and move Arenas to Sg freeing him of handling the ball duties and focusing exclusively on scoring....he will tear the league down.

I think he can still be useful, but only if he redefines his game to be more play making oriented

His past injuries are going to force him to become more of a passer... I look for him to become the #2 scoring option behind Butler when next season starts

I think that he will come back next season and even better shooter then before, for example when Amare did his knee one of the main things he did was work on his shot because it was alot easier on his knee than any other work out he could have been doing and while he couldnt run he could still shoot and mess around on the court. And by watching Amare since he had his injury his shooting has imporved so much. So im thinking Gil would proabable be doing the same thing.

Agree but this would happen in a year from now IMO. I highly doubt Saunders would let Rubio get the game going with Arenas in the starting SG position...That would certainly not fly in DC...
