Wall out 8 weeks with injury to patella

Apparently he doesn't need surgery. Just rest and rehab.

WIZARDS CURSE CONTINUES!

Edit: It's all over Twitter. Conference at 2 PM.

Wow another knee injury for a Wiz PG. Sadly I already know the exact doctor he'll be going to......prepare for an Arenas like recovery.

So he'll basically miss the first month of the season.

Awesome.

With Sh'Mack and (The P is silent)Rice, they have plenty of depth.

Hope Wall get some outside counsel on this one.

Couldn't he at least wait to get hurt during the season. Un-freaking believable. :roll: :oops: :cry:

I guess it's too late to grab another backup point guard and dump Mack.

At least if we're going to tank, let it be next year (Andrew Wiggins)

Come on, guys. This is the Wizards we're talking about here. You didn't think we were getting into this season without a bad injury, did you? I call this news an improvement. A few years ago I'd have expected an announcement that Wall's leg would require amputation.

Usually, the depression doesn't begin until the season is underway.

I see the basketball gods have decided to smite us differently this year.

Lets hope this and Nene being on the side line are the worst of our injuries this yr. Ernie has more excuses if this doesn't work now.
Sit back and watch WALL WORK!! >:-)

Is it too early to get the tank warmed up?
