Minimally, but still negatively. He would have been a (very slightly) better bowler in my eyes had he not got injured and instead played that match.
We're talking really hair-splitting stuff when it comes to one game out of a really long career, but if you play **** or you miss games it costs your side, whether you're injured or not, so it effects how I rate you, just as playing a good match does.
