Supply: Wall (knee) might be out two months

Share

Wall missed Saturday's game against the Hawks and went to Cleveland on Monday to receive a second opinion on the knee.

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall has been hampered by an unspecified left knee ailment recently.

A report from ESPN set the 2-month timeline, while a Washington Post report has Wall set to miss 6 to 8 weeks.

Tomas Satoransky has served as the team's backup at point guard of late, but he's a natural small forward.

Wizards head coach Scott Brooks has said Wall needed his knee drained a few times this season.

Wall is averaging 19.4 points in 37 games and ranks second in the National Basketball Association in assists per game (9.3).

The Washington Wizards are set to enter a critical stretch of the National Basketball Association season, but they'll need to survive the important period without All-Star guard John Wall. (He was voted in as a starter in 2015.) In his absence, the National Basketball Association, which decides all injury replacement matters, will likely elevate either Ben Simmons or Kemba Walker into his spot. Two months will spit Wall back onto the court at the end of March, with roughly 20 games remaining for another Washington playoff push. He was voted into the game as a reserve along with teammate Bradley Beal last week, giving Washington its first pair of all-stars in the same season in 10 years. The Wizards are 6-6 in those games. The Wizards enter Tuesday at 27-22, good for sixth in the Eastern Conference.
