John Wall Out At Least Two Weeks


Washington Wizards star John Wall will not play for approximately two weeks as he deals with discomfort and inflammation in his left knee, the team announced Saturday. Wall sat out a loss to the Toronto Raptors on November 19 due to knee soreness but had played the past two games. Wall will receive platelet-rich plasma treatment and viscosupplementation injections in his left knee, according to a statement from the Wizards.

Certainly, the injury to Wall is a monumental loss for the Wizards basketball team.

Wall is averaging 20.3 points and 9.2 assists in his 16 games this season. As a result, Wall sat out against the Toronto Raptors but returned against the Milwaukee Bucks and Charlotte Hornets.

"He's sore", Brooks said of Wall on Friday. If he's been playing this well through injury, there's a real possibility he sees a bump when he comes back healthy.

Backup Tim Frazier replaces Wall in the starting lineup with Tomas Satoransky moving into the rotation. In 42 career starts, Frazier averages 8.8 points and seven assists. He'll miss games consecutively for the first time in two seasons. "Obviously we can't be John, an All-Star, our leader, our best player, but we just got to step up and be the best we can and get as many wins as possible".
