Portland Trail Blazers: Stat Projections for the Starting Unit
Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

After a disappointing season for the Portland Trail Blazers in which the team struggled through insubordination, lost long-time coach Nate McMillan and ultimately fell far short of the playoffs, the Blazers are ready to get back on track with a revamped roster featuring two lottery picks and a healthy cluster of young players looking to make their mark. 

With such a different roster from the start of the season a year ago, it's difficult to predict how well players will perform in the coming season. However, that is exactly what I will now attempt to do. 

Due to the imprecise and tricky nature of predicting statistical production from human beings, I chose to use decimals only to a half-point degree, as the purpose of the article is more to predict general production than to accomplish the unlikely task of perfectly predicting a player's stats.

Furthermore, if a player produces at such a low rate in any statistical category that his average is likely to fall below 0.5 per game, I will not include the stat to spare you the pointless and tiring argument over whether Will Barton will average 0.2 or 0.4 blocks per game.
