John Wall injury update: Timetable pushed back

Kevin C. Cox

There's no telling how long John Wall will continue to sit with a knee injury, as the third-year point guard has already missed more than the eight weeks Washington Wizards first indicated he would.

John Wall has already missed the original date for a return from an offseason knee injury, and Washington Wizards officials indicate it will only take longer, as Michael Lee of the Washington Post reports.

Wall was supposed to take eight weeks to come back from the stress injury in his left knee, but that was 10 weeks ago. Head coach Randy Wittman now says the initial timeline was actually 8-12 weeks, but the team now has no timetable for his return. Wall has not been cleared to do any basketball activities beyond shooting, and it's not clear when he'll be able to do any. President Ernie Grunfeld said the team would allow him to play as soon as doctors allowed, but that the word has not yet come.

Saying that the team has struggled in the absence of the third-year point guard is an understatement: they're 2-13, with the worst offensive efficiency ranking in the league by a wide margin. A.J. Price is filling in at point guard, averaging 9.3 points and 5.1 assists, with Shaun Livingston backing up.
