Bad news coming out of Washington for the Wizards. The team announced on Saturday that All-Star point-guard John Wall is going to miss at least two weeks with left knee discomfort and inflammation. Wall sat out a loss to the Toronto Raptors on November 19 due to knee soreness but had played the past two games.
John Wall is the Wizards most important player, and now they could be without him for a significant amount of time.
Wall will undergo PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and viscosupplementation injections to fight the inflammation in his knee.
Wall underwent an MRI on the knee on Friday. He is expected to miss approximately two weeks. Obviously, the knee injury has impacted his performance. Tim Frazier is expected to start while Wall is sidelined.
Wall could be back in time to join the team in Los Angeles, California, on December 9 against the Clippers, or even when the team returns to D.C. on December 1, when Washington hosts Memphis. The Wizards are 2-4 without Wall since the start of last season.
In 16 games this season, Wall is averaging 20.3 points, 9.2 assists and 3.4 boards in 34.4 minutes a night.
