Ronny Turiaf Injury: Washington Wizards' Center Out 5-6 Weeks With Broken Hand, According To Report

The hits just keep coming for the Washington Wizards. They're the last winless team in the NBA, and now, they'll be without Ronny Turiaf for about a month and a half with a broken hand, which he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Celtics. Chris Miller of CSN Washington has the scoop:

The Washington Wizards bad start to the 2011-12 season just got worse.

On Monday night Comcast SportsNet learned that forward Ronny Turiaf will be sidelined 5-6 weeks with a broken hand.

That's a pretty big loss. Turiaf hasn't put up great offensive numbers, but he's done a really nice job moving his feet and he's probably one of the better screen-setters on the team. He provided a nice antidote to JaVale McGee when McGee struggled (which hasn't been too often).

Without him, Kevin Seraphin will get an opportunity to step up, but he hasn't really proven anything in games yet. Hope you're ready, Kevin.
