Wizards holding John Wall out two weeks due to knee discomfort, inflammation

New Shoulder Replacement Procedure Gives the Gift of Movement

Washington Wizards point guard Tim Frazier will start in place of John Wall on Saturday night.

The 27-year-old already had his knee drained, but was still experiencing discomfort and missed Friday's practice to undergo an MRI, per NBC Sports Washington's Chase Hughes.

"Wall will receive PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and viscosupplementation injections to reduce the inflammation in his left knee".

'Captain Marvel': Jude Law Lands Male Lead Opposite Brie Larson
Jude Law is in negotiations to play the male lead opposite Brie Larson in Marvel's " Captain Marvel ", sources tell Variety . Details on Captain Marvel are still mostly under wraps, but we know it'll be an origin story set in the early 1990s.

The 6-4 guard has continued to play at a high level despite the injury. His last game, he had 31 points and 11 assists but hasn't played more than 35 minutes since November 15th and even missed a game last week versus Toronto. Obviously, the knee injury has impacted his performance.

The Wizards are 1-1 without Wall this season but have seen a marked drop on offense when he is off the court, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He has 42 career starts, including two this season and 35 with the Pelicans during the 2016-17 campaign.

Wall could be back in time to join the team in Los Angeles, California, on December 9 against the Clippers, or even when the team returns to D.C. on December 1, when Washington hosts Memphis.
