Jan Vesely Remains Positive Despite Struggles
Jan Vesely sprinted down the middle of the lane, caught the sweet, no-look pass from Jordan Crawford, bobbled it a little but, then soared to the rim and cocked the ball back before throwing an emphatic dunk.
“I just, every time, I try to use my chance and play as hard as I can,” said Vesely, whose second-quarter jam was one of the Wizards‘ few highlight plays in a 100-68 debacle against Detroit and was made mostly irrelevant since it only brought his team with 17 points.
His season remains clouded by one of the more disconcerting stats, as Vesely still has more fouls (41) than points (37) or rebounds (35). He is also now 3 for 17 from the foul line this season after missing two more at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Mich.
“It’s tough, especially when the team is losing,” Vesely said of his current role. “Everybody try to stay positive but sometimes it’s hard. I try to practice everyday, work on my game and stay ready for my chance to play.”
