NBA Injury News:
Unfortunately for the Washington Wizards, Emeka Okafor wasn't yesterday's only injury news. The team also announced that forward Chris Singleton will miss six to eight weeks due to a fracture in his foot at the base of his small toe, according to J. Michael of CSN Washington.Last night the team said that Singleton had undergone successful surgery to repair the stress fracture in his left foot. The procedure involved a screw being inserted into the forward's foot, and all apparently went well.Injuries are never ideal, but this is especially poor timing for Singleton. He's entering the final year of his rookie contract, and there was already a chance he wouldn't be picked up after this season considering the team's depth at the forward position. Washington added Otto Porter in the recent NBA Draft.Singleton had a rough 2012-13 campaign. His minutes fluctuated greatly, and he finished the year averaging only 4.1 points and 3.2 rebounds. He shot less than 40 percent from the field and under 20 percent from three-point range.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
