Wizards: Antawn Jamison will miss "four to six weeks" from original date of shoulder injury

UPDATE: Michael Lee has the news too.

The Wizards just sent a press release out saying that Antawn Jamison just had his shoulder re-evaluated and that the original diagnosis didn't change.  He still has a subluxation and is expected to miss "four to six weeks" from the date he originally injured the shoulder. 

Jamison originally got hurt on October 14, which is 13 days before the Wizards' regular-season opener against Dallas.  He's then expected to miss another two to four weeks after that, so assuming the original timetable is accurate (which it never seems to be with this team), Jamison should be back by mid- to late-November. 

Assuming that's accurate, I suppose this could have been worse.  But I'm pretty skeptical, based simply off this teams' injury history.  Let's hope the diagnosis is correct.

Full release below the jump

"Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that forward Antawn Jamison’s right shoulder has been re-evaluated and that the findings were consistent with the original diagnosis of a subluxation.  He is expected to miss from four to six weeks from the date of the injury (Jamison sustained the injury in the Wizards’ 109-104 win in Cleveland on Oct. 14).

The Wizards will conclude their preseason schedule tonight when they take on the Bulls at 8:00 p.m. in Chicago.  The team will tip off the regular season in Dallas on Oct. 27 and will travel to Atlanta to face the Hawks on Oct. 30 before opening their home schedule against New Jersey on Halloween night at Verizon Center."
