This is a critical year coming up for John Wall. Many feel as if he has underachieved so far during his brief two year career after being selected first overall a few years ago.
But this certainly doesn’t help his cause.
Wall will have to sit out 8 weeks with a bad knee, which means he’ll miss the first month of the season.
I wonder how much playing in summer league games contributed to this.
Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that guard John Wall will miss approximately eight weeks after being diagnosed with the early stages of a stress injury to his left patella. No surgery will be necessary, and his rehab will begin immediately.
“My teammates and I are all excited to build on the improvement we made at the end of last season, and I know they will continue to make great progress while I get through this setback,” said Wall. “I will work extremely hard to make sure I get back as soon as possible so I can re-join them and help our team continue to improve.”
