John Wall Set to Miss Time With Injury

26 November 2017

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. According to the team, Wall suffered a "knee-to-knee contact" injury vs. the Mavericks way back on November 7th. The doctors decided that Wall would receive platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and viscosupplementation injections in hopes of reducing the inflammation in his knee. Not quite as good as last season, but he is averaging 20.3 points, 9.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game. Most noteworthy, the Wizards turnover percentage raises from 13.6 with John Wall on the court to an alarming 17.4 without the four-time All-Star.

Wall underwent an MRI exam Friday after experiencing inflammation. Obviously, the knee injury has impacted his performance.

The Wizards have had a lot of up and downs already this season.
