They entered the season with expectations of contending in the East, but at 10-8 they've struggled to separate themselves from the rest of the playoff contenders. Most noteworthy, the Wizards turnover percentage raises from 13.6 with John Wall on the court to an alarming 17.4 without the four-time All-Star. We can cover for him for two weeks, and then he's going to come back stronger, better, healthy, and then hopefully we can go from there.
The Washington Wizards have announced that John Wall will miss at least two weeks to deal with discomfort in his left knee.
He consulted with Dr. Richard D. Parker at the Cleveland Clinic Marymount, along with Wizards head team physician Wiemi Douoguih, and underwent an MRI on Friday. "We figure this is the early part of the season, and we're in no rush".
Wall initially was injured during a November 7 loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Per the team's statement, Wall also saw the same doctor this past May about the troublesome left knee.
Wall is averaging 20.3 points and 9.2 assists in his 16 games this season.
Wall has suffered a series of knee injuries in his career.More news: Union Gospel Mission serves Thanksgiving meals
