Wizards PG Wall out 2 weeks

Washington Wizards All-Star guard John Wall will be out approximately two weeks, according to the team. He's been dealing with discomfort and swelling since banging knees with another player in a November 7 game against the Mavericks. He will receive injections in the knee in the hope of reducing inflammation. 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.

Wall is set to undergo platelet-rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections to reduce the inflammation after the injury was diagnosed via an MRI exam Friday.

The Wizards have had a lot of up and downs already this season.


"I'm fine with John missing two weeks if this is going to make him better", center Marcin Gortat said Saturday.

After a career year during the 2016-17 National Basketball Association season, Wall's numbers have all slightly decreased except for blocks. Frazier, 27, is averaging 3.2 points, 3.9 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 turnovers in 16.6 minutes this season. If he's been playing this well through injury, there's a real possibility he sees a bump when he comes back healthy.
