John Wall injury: Wizards' guard out 8 weeks after hurting knee

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

John Wall will miss at least the first month of the season with a "stress injury" in his left patella tendon.

Well, this is really bad. The Washington Wizards have just announced that John Wall will miss eight weeks with a "stress injury" in his left patella tendon. That would keep him out for at least a month of the regular season, if not more. Surgery will not be required, according to the press release.

The Wizards say that Wall went to visit a doctor in New York after experiencing discomfort in the knee. This is apparently the diagnosis.

This, of course, raises many questions about how Wall actually suffered the injury. Was it a freak incident during a training session? Was it lingering discomfort that just kept getting worse while not being tended to? Was Wall's training regiment somehow a cause for this? These are unanswered questions for now, but surely will be asked in the next few days. The Wizards will be holding a conference call at 2:30 p.m. to address the news. We will join it.

Time for A.J. Price to step up, I guess.
