Johnny Davis has been a huge stain on the Washington Wizards season.

Many who have followed the Washington Wizards saw this one coming. Johnny Davis was the tenth pick in the NBA draft this past offseason and has barely played any minutes. In fact, he has only played 62 minutes on an NBA court.

The fact that somebody can say that there is a player who went undrafted and has outperformed Davis in every single statistical category except for blocks, which he wins one to zero, says a lot about the kind of rookie season he is having. This is not a made-up hypothetical as AJ Green of the Milwaukee Bucks is the example.

To say Davis has been underwhelming and a huge disappointment for the Wizards this season would be an understatement. Although, he has had some quality games in the G-League, although, for the most part he has been subpar even at that level. Still, he may be given an opportunity late in the season if the postseason seeding is settled with a few games left.

For a player picked as high as he was to not even eclipse 100 minutes played with less than 20 games left in the season and no significant injury sidelining him is almost unheard of. It’s especially disappointing after looking at some of the players drafted directly after him such as Jalen Williams and Jalen Duren.

Johnny Davis earned the top spot on this list, and he earned it by a mile. He has been subpar at best in the G-League and has just been plain bad at the NBA level.

The Washington Wizards may have had a few disappointing players this season which has reflected on their season as a whole, but it should not take away from the great things that other players are doing. The young players can still improve, and we should still cheer for their success going forward.
