According to the Wizards, Martell Webster sustained a back injury last week working out and today had surgery to repair the herniated disk, which will keep him from basketball activities for 3-5 months.
If I can add, and I think I've made it this far by being able to, Webster is out for training camp and possibly the first month of the season by the time he gets his body up to game speed.
What this means is that:
A) The team now only has six players currently on a contract that will be at camp (with Miller and GRJr)
B) They knew of the injury prior to last night's draft
C) Trevor Ariza is the happiest man to hear this news because the Wizards are about to give him exactly what he wants
