Nah, they started playing poorly prior to the injuries. That became a convenient excuse after, but the poor play started before the injuries mounted. Their great start was smoke-and-mirrors. I remember reading several articles which broke it down statistically, looking at like SF/SA and what not, and how it would eventually switch course. Which it did... big time.

If anything, they finished higher than they should have because of their miraculous start to the season.
