Perkins' inconsistent play earned some criticism, and some media members questioned why Perkins, and not shot-blocking force Serge Ibaka, was playing so much late in games. The injury may help explain Perkins' up-and-down performance, but it also raises some questions about Perkins' playing time.

The impact of Perkins' injury on his play is unknown. The center averaged 4.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per game in the playoffs, slightly below his season averages of 5.1 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.
