06:01 PM ET 12.03 | Jan Vesely has been a disaster in his second year after being the No. 6 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. He has more fouls (34) than points (29) or rebounds (30), and he's completely fallen out of coach Randy Wittman's rotation. However, Wizards owner Ted Leonsis is still behind his young forward. Leonsis noted on his blog that Vesely's play should improve once John Wall returns to the lineup. "Jan Vesely is in his second year of development. You always support a young, talented player, who is 7 feet tall, can run and is fundamentally sound. Jan has our support, and is working hard to develop his all-around game. But this is his second year in the NBA, and he is playing without a starting point guard who can push the pace of play. We shouldn't be so fast to write him off as a player. This is easy to do in media but not something that is smart to do for our franchise."
