John Wall to undergo treatment on knee, miss two weeks

Posted November 26, 2017

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is expected to miss about two weeks due to left knee discomfort and inflammation, the team announced Saturday.

Wall, the four-time All Star, had been experiencing discomfort and inflammation in his left knee after making contact in the Wizards game against the Dallas Mavericks on November 7. Wall is scheduled to receive platelet-rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections to reduce the inflammation.

Certainly, the injury to Wall is a monumental loss for the Wizards basketball team.

In 16 games this season, Wall is averaging 20.3 points, 9.2 assists and 3.4 boards in 34.4 minutes a night. He scored a season-high 31 points and dished out 11 assists in the Wizard's most recent game, a loss to the Hornets Wednesday. "We just wanted to make sure we did some treatments and see how he feels". The star point guard was experiencing soreness in his left knee over the last few weeks and even had it drained at one point by the Wizards' training staff. Parker performed a procedure in May 2016 to remove calcific deposits in Wall's left patella tendon. "That said, he's our leader".
