Starting forward Andray Blatche will miss three to five weeks with a strained calf muscle in his left leg, Wizards Coach Randy Wittman said on Monday during his pregame news conference.

Wizards forward Andray Blatche will be out three to five weeks because of a strained left calf. Washington coach Randy Wittman made the announcement before Monday night's game against Chicago. Blatche was injured in Saturday's win in Charlotte. After an MRI exam, he was advised to stay off his feet.
The Eastern Conference's worst two teams square off for the second time this week Saturday when the Charlotte Bobcats play host to the Washington Wizards.
It’s already been a season of memorable Wizards quotes, from “wicked pixels” to “diaper breath,” from “This is your captain, Andray Blatche,” to “when I see them pull out a cigarette, I’ve got to take it out of their mouth.”
