PLAYERS: John WallRandy Wittman
Washington-wizards-draft
Ten weeks after the Wizards announced that John Wall would miss “approximately” eight weeks because of a stress injury in his left patella, the injured point guard is still unable to practice, scrimmage or even elevate to shoot. Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld and Wall both referred to the injury as a “bump in the road” that wouldn’t keep him down for long, but the team now has no timetable for his return. His extended absence has raised concerns, but Coach Randy Wittman acknowledged Thursday that the original estimate was actually eight-to-12 weeks. Wittman began to panic when a reporter asked if Wall would return this season. Grunfeld said that the team is following orders from the medical staff and will put Wall on the court when he receives clearance, and not a minute sooner. “We have to do what’s best for him long term. It’s frustrating for him, because he’s such a competitor. He worked so hard in the offseason and he wants to be out there with his teammates.” via Washington Post
