Bad news coming out of Washington for the Wizards. The team announced on Saturday that All-Star point-guard John Wall is going to miss at least two weeks with left knee discomfort and inflammation.

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

Wall sat with left knee soreness in Washington's next game against the Toronto Raptors, and then returned to the court for a pair of games against the Milwaukee Bucks and Hornets earlier this week. He initially was injured from knee-to-knee contact in the game against the Dallas Mavericks on November 7. 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. He consulted the same doctor who performed his most recent surgeries for this latest injury.

The Congress, which has described the Goods and Services Tax (GST) as a hasty step, is expected to come out hard at the BJP government over the issue.

Consequently, point guard Tim Frazier will take over the starting point guard role. Wall was averaging 20.3 points and 9.2 assists per game. He had already missed two games this season due to a sprained shoulder and a sprained right ankle.

John Wall is just 35 points away from passing Phil Chenier for sixth place in all time scoring in Washington team history.
