Kevin Seraphin injury: Washington Wizards' big man hurts calf against Cleveland Cavaliers

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Washington Wizards' big man injured his right calf against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Washington Wizards picked up a 99-95 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night, but that victory came with a cost. Kevin Seraphin, the team's best healthy big man, felt a sharp pain in his right calf midway through the first quarter and left the game, never to return. The Wizards must now have to deal with the reality that he could be injured for some time.

Coach Randy Wittman didn't seem optimistic after the game. Via Michael Lee of the Washington Post:

"He keeps saying he's going to be all right, but he's not walking very good," Wittman said. "Just seems to be, for some reason, can't keep a big healthy. We had so many. I was worried leading into the preseason how I was going to get everybody minutes at the bigs. Now, I can't get a big to get minutes."

Seraphin left the arena in a walking boot, which is definitely cause for concern. However, he thinks he's going to be OK. Via Lee:

"We will look. I can put my feet on the floor and that doesn't feel very bad," Seraphin said. "But I'm going to be all right. Everything is in the mind."

With Nene, Emeka Okafor and Trevor Booker all out with different nagging ailments, the Wizards need Seraphin healthy. Seraphin is also trying to build on an excellent end to last season, so you'd hate to see something like this slow his progress.
