Wizards to go without guard John Wall after sustained knee injury

John Wall to undergo treatment on knee, miss two weeks

After receiving an MRI, John Wall is expected to miss two weeks of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season after undergoing treatment on his sore left knee. He initially was injured from knee-to-knee contact in the game against the Dallas Mavericks on November 7. Not a great time to be losing your best player for two weeks. 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.

In May 2016, Parker performed the procedure to remove calcific deposits in his left patella tendon when Wall had played the previous season in pain. The Wizards are 1-1 without Wall so far this season with both games coming against the Raptors. Per ESPN Stats & Info, the Wizards offense efficiency drops from 110.6 to 99.8 when Wall is off the court. Frazier has shown his ability to rack up assists when starting for Wizards this season with eight assists in his two starts.

Louisville fires Johnson, rules Bowen ineligible
Johnson was reported to be the assistant coach that helped arrange the payments from adidas to Bowen's family. Last month, Bowen's attorney Brian Setchen expressed optimism that Louisville would consider reinstatement.

The Wizards will turn to backup point guard Tim Frazier in his absence.

In 16 games this season, Wall is averaging 20.3 points, 9.2 assists and 3.4 boards in 34.4 minutes a night.
