JvR season 1: 0.19 GPG / 0.45 PPG

JvR season 3: 0.26 GPG / 0.56 PPG
His production didn't really decline at all, despite playing hurt all year. The 40 seconds extra per game he played this year would only account for 2 more points at his season 2 scoring rate, which would give a PPG of 0.56 for that year if he had the extra time. So essentially, JVR produced exactly at the same clip as last year, except this time he did it not even close to healthy.
I think it is safe to say he played as well as could reasonably be expected, and I would definitely expect to see his numbers jump a good bit this year if/when he gets back healthy. It just needs to be a slightly bigger jump than from his first to second season for him to be at 55-60 point range and, I would assume, his playoff performances would become even more consistently dominant. With health though comes more ice time (and in better spots like the top PP unit)... which will only help his numbers.
