No member of the Raptors has dealt with more injuries and played through them this year than Barbosa. The Brazilian Blur injured his wrist in the final pre-season game and at some point will require surgery to repair it. There have also been shoulder problems, hamstring problems, and knee problems to deal with. The wrist injury has forced Barbosa to adjust his shot so it has been a little inconsistent for a good part of the year, but his speed remains his top weapon. Coming exclusively off the bench, Barbosa is averaging 13.4 points a night.
How does this get him a C+?

Ultimately i'd easily give Barbosa a solid B for playing the way he has, through various fairly serious injuries.
