RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

In each of his five NBA seasons, Wesley Matthews has increased his three-point total on, settling at 201 successful attempts in 2013-14. The mark was the second-most by a Blazer in franchise history, and only a degree behind Damian Lillard's 218 on the season. In the meantime, Matthews recorded 16.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.5 three-pointers per game, joining his fellow starters with his own personal career highs. He's a true difference maker on the defensive end, though, generally taking on an opponent's top wing on a nightly basis. During Portland's six-game first-round victory over the Rockets, for example, Matthews teamed with Nicolas Batum to harass James Harden into 38-percent shooting from the field, a colossal eight-point drop from Harden' season-long clip. Although Matthews will likely never put up intriguing lines, outside of his proficiency from deep, his durability - namely, only missing games in one of his five seasons - is all but a given. Additionally, no matter the composition of the guard rotation, since Matthews signed with the Blazers in the summer of 2010, he's been handed at least 33 minutes per game.

2013-14

After suiting up for every game in his first three seasons in the league, Matthews missed 13 games due to hip and ankle injuries and would later require surgery on his non-shooting elbow in the offseason. In spite of the various ailments, Matthews still averaged a career-high 35 minutes per game, largely due to a dearth of talent on the Blazers' bench. Aside from a small uptick in scoring (14.8 points) and three-point production (2.4 threes per game) and a downgrade in rebounding (2.8), Matthews more or less held constant across the board. Never a player to pile up notable counting stats outside of the scoring column, Matthews figures to see his numbers take a hit after the Blazers made beefing up their reserve unit a priority in the offseason. In addition to signing Mo Williams and Dorell Wright and trading for Robin Lopez, Portland added C.J. McCollum with the 10th overall pick in this summer's draft. With Damian Lillard and Nicolas Batum locked into full-time roles at point guard and small forward, Matthews' playing time seems to be the most threatened by McCollum, a talented scoring guard who will be tabbed as the Blazers' sixth man to start the season and could ultimately usurp Matthews of his starting job.

2012-13

With the retirement of Brandon Roy, Matthews filled the shooting guard slot for the Trail Blazers and excelled at just about everything, except the “shooting” part. While Matthews held steady across pretty much every category, a 41.2 field goal percentage cut his scoring average down two full points per game. Matthews was plagued by an over-reliance on the jump shot, as he attempted nearly half a shot more from beyond the arc per game and shot at a lower percentage than the year before. He also got to the line a lot less, dropping from 3.8 free throws per game to 2.6. If Matthews can curb his outside shooting and get to the rack more frequently, he could emerge as Portland’s most viable perimeter threat. The team will likely lean on Matthews early on with rookie Damian Lillard slated to handle point guard duties, which should only help his numbers. Ideally, fantasy owners would like to see Matthews add more assists to his repertoire, but he makes up for that with his dependable steals totals (1.5 per game in 2011-12) and low turnover rate (1.1 per game). Though he perhaps relied on the three-ball too much, he still nailed two threes per game, tying for 12th in the NBA. Matthews has the potential to work out the kinks in his game and become an upper-level shooting guard this season.

2011-12

Matthews has been rehabbing his “messed up” ankle all offseason, but it’s believed he should be ready when training camp starts. With Brandon Roy’s career teetering on the edge of a cliff, Matthews has come to be considered the shooting guard of both the present and the future for the Trail Blazers. Through 69 games as a starter last season, Matthews averaged 16.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.1 three-pointers, 1.4 steals, and 1.7 turnovers in 36 minutes. His minutes and scoring tapered off a little after the Blazers acquired Gerald Wallace at the trade deadline, but that loss in minutes may have also been related to the ankle injury he was fighting through for the last two months of the season. Matthews may still be undervalued in some drafts due to his season averages being slightly lowered from the 13 games he has used in limited action at the beginning of the season, but don’t let him slip in drafts. His ability to contribute better-than-average stats in three-pointers and steals make him an ideal shooting guard to own in fantasy.

2010-11

Matthews' 2009-10 campaign has to be considered a success -- from a financial perspective, if nothing else. He started the year as an undrafted free agent, signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Jazz, started 48 games, and then signed a five-year offer sheet, worth about $33 million, with the Trail Blazers this offseason. As with his real-life skillset, he offers no one standout tool in fantasy, either. Nor is he likely to play more than 30 minutes per game, making him waiver-wire fodder in most formats.
