The injury bugs takes another bite out of the Wizards.

Glen Rice Jr. will be out for the next 3-6 weeks after fracturing and having surgery to repair his wrist.

With injuries taking their toll on various players, it looked like was was actually turning into a decent rotation piece. Using his experiences from the D-League, Rice was able to play well on both sides of the ball. Hell, he even got a start last week.

Here's the full statement from the Wizards:

Washington, D.C. - Wizards guard Glen Rice underwent an outpatient procedure this afternoon in New York City to repair a fracture in his right wrist. Rice had experienced pain in his wrist leading up to Monday's game at the Knicks. He saw Dr. Michelle Carlson yesterday, who recommended and performed the surgery after consulting with team doctors. He will be out three to six weeks.

Rice has averaged 2.9 points and 1.8 rebounds in 11 games (including one start) for the Wizards this season.

Man, I'm really looking forward to a stretch where we've got fifteen healthy bodies on this roster. Get well soon, GRJR.
