Wizards star Wall to miss about two weeks

John Wall says it's time for the Wizards to live up to their own expectations this season.

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall will miss about two weeks after an MRI revealed inflammation in his left knee, the team announced in a press release Saturday.

Per the team: “Wall will receive PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and viscosupplementation injections to reduce the inflammation in his left knee. He is expected to miss approximately two weeks.”

Wall told reporters last week he has fluid buildup in his left knee and it’s impacting his mobility severely. The four-time All-Star was administered IVs by the Wizards’ training staff to combat a cold he had a few weeks ago, but they didn’t settle correctly and now the fluid has collected in his left knee.

Wall is averaging 20.3 points and 9.2 assists on the season, shooting 43.5 percent from the floor.

The Wizards enter Saturday with a record of 10-8, sitting at the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
