I understand how that's crippling but in an active effort of his play right now, to bring that into the equation is a mistake logistically. I wouldn't try to take that type of trauma away from someone who undoubtedly has a soft side. If we were to start factoring that in, then we would have to be consistent with that logic (i.e. Pyatt is a damaged player, Pyatt's slump is due to the emotional trauma recurring, Pyatt's success reflects his improvement of mentality and emotional stability).

You can comment on the overall style of his game that might have CHANGED before and after the incident but as a whole, his game now should be considered isolated from his past.
