At this rate, the Wizards won't have any healthy shooting guards. Having already lost Bradley Beal and Martell Webster to injury, the Wizards also saw Glen Rice Jr. go down with a sprained ankle early in the third quarter against Maccabi Haifa. He did not return to the game.
Afterwards, Randy Wittman said he was "day to day."
Rice is likely day to day. Fell on a guy's ankle. A little swelling.— Bullets Forever (@BulletsForever) October 16, 2014
Wittman says Glen Rice is day-2-day (ankle), says they will get him in a "contraption" tonight to get swelling down. #Wizards— Kyle Weidie (@Truth_About_It) October 16, 2014
It's not quite clear how Rice got hurt. Play-by-play on Twitter seems to indicate that he stepped on an opponent's foot and limped up the court before immediately running to the locker room after a stoppage in play. Xavier Silas, who himself is suspended for the season opener, replaced him.
If Rice is out for an extended period of time, that leaves the Wizards with few options. We're basically looking at switching Otto Porter to shooting guard, playing Garrett Temple more, hoping Silas actually contributes after the one-game suspension or play Wall and Andre Miller together, a look Randy Wittman previously shot down.
So ... yikes. Be well, Glen.
