This article features a list of the most misused or misdrafted rookies in the NBA this season. 

It includes those who entered the league with high expectations and were forced into rotations too early, and it also includes others who spent the majority of the 2012-13 season on the bench.

Each player on this list was selected in the first round of last year's draft, with three of them being drafted as high as the top-10. 

While some of these rookies have gone on to play as many as 25 minutes per night, they have all yet to average even nine points per game.

They are listed according to a combination of expectations based on draft position and their production thus far as an NBA rookie.
