RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

In the second season of his career, Motiejunas stayed pretty consistent with the numbers he posted in his rookie season. With a slight increase in minutes per game from 12 to 15, Motiejunas ended up averaging 5.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.3 blocks. He also stayed consistent with his field goal percentage, finishing the season at 44 percent and shot fairly decent for a big man outside the three-point arc with a 25-percent three-point percentage. Motiejunas will probably be used at both the center and power forward position this season, and he'll be relied upon to keep Dwight Howard fresh throughout the season. With the departure of Omer Asik, Motiejunas is in for a highly extended role from his two previous seasons, and he'll have a huge increase in his minutes per game. With a heavy increase in minutes, it's almost assured Motiejunas will increase his point, rebound, assist, and block numbers from last season and get consistent playing time as a key reserve. Going into his third season, the Rockets will need him to be much improved in order to have the depth to make a deep playoff run this season.

2013-14

Motiejunas is the typical Euro big man - not much of a rebounder or shot blocker, but can stretch the floor by knocking down the three. He could be a good fit alongside Howard, however, as he can play away from the basket.

2012-13

The lean seven-footer played in Poland last year, where he shot the three and blocked a few shots. He'll have a chance for minutes behind Omer Asik on a young Rockets team.
