John Wall to undergo treatment on knee, miss two weeks

Posted November 26, 2017

Wizards star John Wall is expected to miss about two weeks as he recovers from a knee injury he suffered in a game earlier this month.

Wall's knee flared up after a November 7 game with the Dallas Mavericks where he experienced knee-to-knee contact, according to a statement from the Wizards.

The Wizards will need to rely heavily on their next best playmaker Bradley Beal, who has scored at least 20 points in his last five games and has failed to score 20 or more only four times this season.

Things have not gone too swimmingly for John Wall and the Washington Wizards.

Washington is 1-1 this season without Wall, who also missed a game because of a shoulder injury. The doctors decided that Wall would receive platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and viscosupplementation injections in hopes of reducing the inflammation in his knee.

Wall underwent an MRI exam Friday after experiencing inflammation. Tim Frazier is expected to start in place of Wall. They enter this weekend with a pedestrian 10-8 record. Frazier, 27, is averaging 3.2 points, 3.9 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 turnovers in 16.6 minutes this season.
