Glen Rice Jr. leaves Wizards-Maccabi Haifa game with sprained ankle

New, comments

The Wizards' fill-in shooting guard is also hurt, though it's unclear how seriously.

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."

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.
