Wizards' Wall Out Two Weeks With Knee Inflammation

After receiving an MRI, John Wall is expected to miss two weeks of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season after undergoing treatment on his sore left knee. Wall will receive platelet-rich plasma treatment and viscosupplementation injections in his left knee, according to a statement from the Wizards.

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.

Wall initially reported swelling on November 11, his left knee inflammation began after "knee-to-knee contact" during a November 7 game against the Mavericks.


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

Wall is averaging 20.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 9.2 assists in 16 starts.

The Wizards have had a lot of up and downs already this season. "Obviously we can't be John, an All-Star, our leader, our best player, but we just got to step up and be the best we can and get as many wins as possible".
