WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington Wizards guard John Wall is expected to miss about two weeks with inflammation in his left knee, the team announced on Saturday. According to the team, Wall suffered a "knee-to-knee contact" injury vs. the Mavericks way back on November 7th. Wall is a player who utilizes blazing speed with his dribbling, crossover and scoring so a knee injury is definitely something the team wants to take care of.

Wall will undergo PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and viscosupplementation injections to fight the inflammation in his knee.

Thus far this season, Wall is averaging 20.3 points and 9.2 assists while shooting at a 44 percent clip from the field. He has since played in seven of Washington's eight games, including an overtime loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night, when he scored 31 points and dished out 11 assists over a season-high 41 minutes of game action.


The Wizards sit at 10-8 and are now placed at 7th in the Eastern Conference.

Dr. Richard D. Parker with the Cleveland Clinic Marymount was consulted about the injury. He is expected to miss approximately two weeks. He'll miss games consecutively for the first time in two seasons.
