John Wall Knee Procedure, Will Miss Six Weeks

The sweeter side of the Washington Wizards backcourt

The Wizards said Tuesday that Wall would have the operation in Cleveland and that a timeline for his return would be determined afterward. Wall is expected to miss six weeks and will not play in next month's NBA All-Star Game. Now, after Cousins suffered an Achilles tear, both former Wildcats are out for a significant amount of time, and Washington's postseason hopes, which seemed so close to crystallizing in last year's playoffs, may be cut off at the knees before the Wizards ever truly emerged. He will miss six weeks & will not play in upcoming All-Star weekend, The Washington Post has learned. Luckily the doctor who performed his double knee surgery in 2016 will be performing this one as well (the doctor also happens to be the Cavaliers head physician). Those numbers are all down from a season ago. It just comes at an very bad time for the Wizards. Beal will be forced to handle the ball more, and the Wizards will likely be stuck using clunky over-sized lineups. When he sits, the Wizards score less, allow more, shoot less efficiently and turn the ball over with greater frequency. The Wizards would have to go 5-15 in their next 20 games to really start sweating the John Wall injury.

The contrasting dynamic between Bradley Beal and John Wall is very interesting. Wall's absence simply isn't going to help matters.

Clinton: given second chance, I would fire aide accused of sexual harassment
The real outrage, this person said, is that Strider was rehired at Correct the Record , which was run by Clinton allies. He served a pastoral-like role, praying with her and for her.

In addition to questions about depth, Wall has appeared to take a step back this season. The other concern is that the team might drop so much that it'll have a nightmare matchup in the first round of the playoffs.

Though the Wizards are now sitting in fifth place in the Easter Conference, they still boast one of the best backcourts in all of the National Basketball Association. Moreover, with the trade deadline just ten days away and the Wizards having little wiggle room with salary it could be a tricky prospect for the Wizards brain trust. While they are now in the middle of the playoff picture, they are just four-and-a-half games ahead of the Detroit Pistons in the No. 9 slot.
