I think he needs to get stronger, specially his upper body needs some gym work.
If he gains some strenght he will be able to finish better at the rim, because the problem with Ricky is that a lot of times he doesn't have the quick first step or the strenght to blow by his man, and then instead of driving hard and straight to the basket he has the tendency to shy away from the defender or stepping back, resulting in very poor shot percentage near the rim.
The good news is that despite the knee injury he is still allowed to work in that particular aspect, lifting weights and training in the gym. Hopefully when he is back next season he will be stronger and a a better finisher.
