I think he was definitely injured for a good part of the season.

I just thought of a possible reason for his uninspired play though, maybe after several games he saw the direction this team was headed in, and with him not wanting to sign a contract until after the season, knows that as a bottomfeeder we are going to trade him before the deadline. It would explain why he seemingly looks more dazed and lackadaisical with every passing game. I'm pretty sure he wanted to retire here.
Last year if I remember correctly, wasn't he playing hurt after the half-way point? He really tries to play through injuries when maybe it might be better to take a seat and let those injuries heal properly. Especially with a groin injury.
